I always thought tokyo was underrated, one of my favourite skylines.

Best overall skyline for variety is NYC, Hong Kong for the glamour, both interesting skylines with huge buildings.

In the future maybe Guangzhou or Shanghai.

Yes, this is my point in saying Manila doesn't have a place here. Only 5 or 6 cities do.

North America : NY
South America : all are so boring!
East Asia : HK
South East Asia : Singapore
Europe : Frankfurt (europe is best for its heritage buildings, not modern one)
Africa : none (all ugly)
Middle East : none. all look too typical

Australasia : Sydney

Maybe the poll should have been "What is your favourite skyline from this list of random cities" to help prevent people throwing their toys out of the pram..

No, I think only 4-5 cities could arguably be the world's best skyline. By extension, all others should receive no votes as they're not #1 in the world. 20 votes for Shenzhen means 20 people think Shenzhen is the best skyline on the planet. I don't think one can make a good argument for that at all.

Yep, there should only be 5 or 6 cities to choose from. The others aren't credible candidates for that title of world's best.

My top 5

New York City (because it's NYC)
London (i'm biased )
Toronto (big Canadian fan)
Chicago (it's awesome)
Tokyo (it's underrated by most people,so i'd choose this )

If you say which City have the Best Skyline in the world I would say that HONG KONG is the BEST Skyline! It's just my opinion because Hong Kong have beautiful harbour view at night!

There are some options on the poll that don't even deserve to be on the list.

Panama city it's massive but I dont like very much the design of the buildings (it's just an opinion) In LATAM I prefer Buenos Aires or Mexico City. Santiago too but I am not objective! jejej
