Pollution within Makati CBD has improved as with various urban developments.

Yes it is dense and congested but the CBD itself give you a feel of a mini Manhattan or a Manhattan like atmosphere in South East Asia or even The Pacific Islands.

But again, isn't this the same with other Metro Manila CBDs such as Ortigas?

In fact it resembles a North American downtown, one of the few in Asia that has that feel other than Central in HK or Raffles Place in SG.

Even still, in terms of skyscrapers - Frankfurt is neither dense, nor compact. How 'compact' a city is, should be a combination of density, height and size. Not just a couple of skyscrapers.

Charlotte is magical in person. I saw it once at night heading from Atlanta to New York by train, and I absolutely loved it. At the time, I didn't even know what city it was, just that it was so beautiful.

Best ones I can think of - *My Opinion:

Europe - La Defance (Paris)

Asia/Oceania - Singapore (CBD section)

North America - Charlotte NC - This is a hard choice and with cities like Houston, Los Angeles downtown, Calgary and Columbus with its who's who of architects however I chose Charlotte as I like it's modernity and shape.

South America - Rio de Janeiro - (Centro)

Africa - Cape Town - Seems both Johannesburg and Durban have spread well away from their respective CBDs and now cannot be classified as compact. No other cities in Africa apart from Nairobi really come close


*Your opinion may be different and that's great
