Saigon is one of the fastest developing cities of Vietnam and nothing is more telling of this characteristic than the many skyscrapers around the city. There are also many bars located on the rooftops of these buildings that promise partygoers a great night with a fantastic view. If you are looking for a place to drink and dance, check out this article about the best rooftop/sky bars in Saigon for more information.

Chill Skybar – AB Tower

This is the most popular sky bar in Saigon because of its expansive glowing outdoor bar section offering views to Bitexco, the bustling backpacker area, and the busiest roundabout of Saigon. This 1,000-square meter bar comes with Western-style decoration. There is a walk-in liquor cabinet, which displays more than 300 types of brands, in the sleek dining area. It’s even been home to parties lit up by famous DJs like the sexy DJ KimKat when they visited Vietnam.
