Really, some people in government really have foolish taste for beauty
Every Chinese city at night are way too colorful, day views are just OK.

But seriously, I find HK more interesting as a city due to its geography. You guys have mountains that I crave for every single day...

Skyline wise, Singapore is still too small. In 10 years, when rest of Marina Bay is developed it will be surely extremely impressive, for now its still behind HK to me..

Spore skyline has changed with those additional towers and its slowly spreading.Its kinda look like Manila.Spore loosing the skyline 'wow' factor.

Singapore need a focal point.

i sometimes feel like shanghai is better than HK, especially at night... just sometimes though... for me, HK is still 2nd to Singapore... HK is massive and amazing but Singapore has the character...

my list would go this way
1. SIngapore
2. Hong Kong
3. Shanghai
4. Manila
5. Jakarta
6. Bangkok
7. Tokyo
8. Seoul
9. Kuala Lumpur
10. Dubai
