Description: The View Rooftop Bar is located on the rooftop of Duc Vuong Hotel. There is no better way to experience Ho Chi Minh City than from a lofty rooftop with buildings and streaming cars spread out far beneath you. But some bars in Vietnam’s biggest city are now charging sky high prices to go with the sky high view. That’s why The View rooftop bar at Duc Vuong Hotel is such a great place for a drink: prices for a beer start from just 20,000 VND ($1 US), and the panorama from the ninth floor takes in the full cityscape of Ho Chi Minh for some great photographs. Located on the backpacker street of Bui Vien, The View rooftop bar is easy to find; it is housed atop one of the tallest buildings on the street.The bar is spread out across the entirety of the roof and split into two main sections providing plenty of seating. In addition, there is a sort of tree house structure made out of wood and an indoor ‘party room’ with disco lights (although this is almost always empty). The most pleasant part of the bar is the area stretching off to the right as from here there is the clearest view of Bitexco Tower and the neighbouring skyscrapers of Ho Chi Minh City’s financial centre. Wherever you look in The View rooftop bar you will see colourful strips of neon lights and plenty of trees, shrubs and flowers; like its Christmastime in a garden centre! It’s a charming and easygoing interior which matches the vibe of Bui Vien Street perfectly.Beers for $1 and cocktails for $3 is unheard of at any other rooftop bar in Ho Chi Minh City so if you want to capture a breathtaking background but don’t want to break the bank The View Rooftop Bar at the Duc Vuong Hotel should be your first choice. It must be said that service at The View is excellent and the English speaking staff are happy to chat and offer advice about where to go in Ho Chi Minh. They also serve a reasonable menu of western and Vietnamese standards but ultimately it’s the cheap cocktails that keep people coming back for more.

The view is amazing. Its a fanastic place for meeting fellow travelers. We were staying at the hotel below so we had been there a few times. Staff are very attentive and friendly. Drinks are average prices and the smoothies/cocktails are to die for ! Foods pretty good also :)

The view up there is great, the staff is very friendly and the four Drinks we've had were really good. The prices (100-150k) are ok for such a nice place and not higher than in the Bars down on the Street.

Wandered up here right before close on my only night staying in the attached hotel. It wasn't very busy so I had my pick of the seating, and chose a spot right next to the balcony on the top, with a beautiful view of the city. It was nice to be higher up to enjoy a little peace and quiet (relatively, compared with the rest of HCMC, haha) after a long day of traveling. While the drinks were a little pricier than most spots, I'd say the view and the breeze made up for it. Staff was also very friendly! I had a nice chat with Ichiru Kiriyu, and she helped to make it a memorable little night-cap.

Great view from the rooftop. The night I visited there was a live band. The staff tried to charge 3 times the normal price for a beer because of the live music
