[Slideshow] A Morning on the Bitexco Tower's Helipad

Since it’s rarely (if ever) used for helicopters, the Bitexco Tower’s notoriously underutilized helicopter landing pad has become something of an urban legend. Last month, the editors of the TP. Hồ Chí Minh: MEGA City photo book were granted access to the helipad and made use of its position as one of the city's highest open-air locations to snap some stunning photos. 

These photos, taken by Michael Waibel, Henning Hilbert and Leigh Ann Chow, will be included in the planned November release of the second edition of TP. Hồ Chí Minh: MEGA City.

Saigoneer is proud to be the media sponsor of the TP. Hồ Chí Minh: MEGA City photo book which was formally released on February 19. The book, edited by Michael Waibel and Henning Hilbert, was produced with the support of the Goethe Institut, and funding from Audi. 

The book is available at HCMC Artbook book shops. To order a copy directly, please contact info@saigoneer.com.
