PTT is definitely the most famous even until today. Beautiful, newer scrapers like troika and the sail are good too.

Petronas Towers are great skyscrapers. For years they both were recognized the tallest buildings in the world.

No IFC or BOC?

I would have voted for the BOC.

That marina bay complex is so over the top. It's impressive but rather kitsch. It should be in Las Vegas or Macau.

Some organizations put Hong Kong in Southeast Asia, but typically that part of the continent is south of China.

Hong Kong is more East Asia.

It's often considered South East Asia (in business for example). Don't get ahead of yourself.

Nothing can beat the Petronas Towers, truly magnificent. Having said that I am impressed with with Marina Bay, though haven't seen it completed in real life.

Also like the Menara Telekom, think the Troika is overrated
