Chicago should be in that group.

Melbourne's got a great 'little' skyline too - but the ruler of all 'little' skylines is most certainly Singapore.

i'm sorry to say this,,,but yeah.,, kuala lumpur doesn't really have that good skyline.its scrapers doesn't really look good,it just happens that the ones tallest scrapers are there,...its overRated.anyway i dont hate malaysia.
manila on the other hand has one of the best,,,the metro has many clusters of scrapers,its underRated,,you just have to look at the skyline,not the name.the name manila is overshadowed by negativity....thats all...
BTW,london,paris ,moscow should not be on that list,,,,,, their skylines sucks,i mean these cities don't have much scrapers to form a "WOW" skyline,, IMHO...

Moscow will, shortly.

Manila still does nothing for me. Bangkok has a nicer, but comparable skyline.

I think its unfair to put 1 skyline ahead of another as each has its own uniqueness and beauty, but I would say currently, at the end of 2010, the Top 8 would include all this below:

New York
Chicago
Hong Kong
Shanghai
Guangzhou
Shenzen
Singapore
Dubai



In the near future, cities from China(Chongqing, etc.), Middle east (Abu Dhabi, Kuwait), South East Asia (Kuala Lumpur, Bangkok, Manila), and Moscow will challenge

Moscow already has a nice skyline and it's going to be stunning by 2013/2014.

Your last post is barely a skyline.


Those are probably the best pics I've seen of Makati - good showcase there. I still prefer Bangkok though.
