The observatory deck on Landmark 81, Vietnam’s tallest skyscraper located in Binh Thanh District, Ho Chi Minh City, was officially opened to visitors on Sunday.

Hundreds of people visited the Landmark 81 SkyView, situated on the 79th to 81st floors of the building, on the opening day to have a view of the southern metropolis from an altitude of nearly 400 meters.

The three floors are designed with glass windows so that visitors can have a look at the city at almost any spot.

The 79th floor offers multiple photo opportunities and accommodates the Miwaku café lounge.

The highlight of the 80th floor is a Japanese-style fine dining restaurant.

The 81st floor offers a service called SkyTouch, which surely attracts a lot of thrill seekers.

Visitors are able to have a view from an open space but they are required to wear a set of protective gear.

People can also experience a Vietnamese-made VR game called Top of Vietnam, which gives players a feeling as if they were skydiving from an altitude of 461 meters.

Ticket price is VND810,000 (US$35) for adults and VND405,000 ($17) for children.

The first 810 visitors, however, are entitled to a discounted price of VND300,000 ($13).

At 461.2 meters high, the Landmark 81, located at the heart of a luxury residential complex developed by Vietnamese conglomerate Vingroup, is Vietnam’s tallest skyscraper and the 14th tallest building in the world.

The building previously hosted its first-ever fireworks display on the 2019 Lunar New Year’s Eve, five months after its inauguration in July 2018.

The Vinpearl Luxury Landmark Hotel, situated on the 47th to 77th floors of Landmark 81, was also inaugurated on Sunday, becoming the highest hotel in Southeast Asia.
