3. Best time to go to the Sky Deck
The best time to go to the Sky Deck is around 4:30 – 6:00 when you can catch the beautiful sunset and enjoy sparkling city after the sunsets.
I went to the Sky Deck at around 4:30 pm to catch the sunset, and 8:10 pm seemed to be the only option left for the Heineken tour that day (could be a lot of people).
4. How to get to the Sky Deck – Bitexco Financial Tower
Address: Bitexco Financial Tower, No. 36, Ho Tung Mau Street, District 1, Ho Chi Minh City
The Bitexco Financial Tower is right in the center of the city, district 1. Since it is the second tallest building in the city, you can easily locate the tower. If you live around Dong Khoi Street or Pham Ngu Lao Street, it is easy to walk to the tower.
You can also take a local taxi or book a Grab Taxi ( Grab is very popular in Ho Chi Minh City) to go directly to the tower.
5. What is included in the tour?
The tour bracelet included 2 beers, water, and chips, there’s also 1 cup from when you try to pour your own beer. At the end you also get a can of beer and customized bottle in the gift bag. The part about the history of Heineken and the making of its beer was enjoyable.
Saigon Skydeck and World of Heineken Reviews
Worth choosing the combo option. Would recommend going earlier to pick up the physical tickets so you could choose a time slot for the Heineken tour. I went to the Sky Deck at around 4:30pm to catch the sunset, and 8:10pm seemed to be the only option left for the Heineken tour that day (could be a lot of tour groups). So I went out for dinner after visiting the Sky Deck, then returned for the Heineken tour at night, which was nice too as I could see the Saigon night view. The tour bracelet included 2 beers, water and chips, there’s also 1 cup from when you try to pour your own beer. At the end you also get a can of beer and customized bottle in the gift bag.
