1. Sydney
2. Melbourne
3. Rio
4. Santiago
5. Pearth

Rio de Janeiro Downtown Skyline:



For me, the Rio de Janeiro Downtown Skyline is better than skyline of Buenos Aires, Santiago and Sao Paulo. Sao Paulo is a very dense city, but the skyline is not the best of Brazil in my opinion.

dude ease up. I don't think you have stopped to consider that Sydney is Sidney in Portugese or Spanish. Let it pass. Do you know how the Japanese pronounce Johannesburg... yohunesburg.. inotherwords, more like the original. Do you know how they say Greece... girishia... inotherwords, more like the original, and so on and so on. How do we pronounce Buenos Aires in Australia? Wrongly is the answer. I realise my point so far is about pronunciation but it's relative. While you might never, ever be able to fathom Lisbon as anything other than Lisbon including Lisboa, so these guys just think of Sidney, I mean Sydney, as Sidney. That's the place name in their language so let them keep doing that. The Mumbaians and the Kolkataites and the everyone else put up with decades of people referring to them with inaccurate colonial place names.

With 3 towers above 200/250 metres in that panoramic Buenos Aires would definitely be the number 1...
