Why South Asia ? Seattle looks better than many first tier cities of Asia, Far East, Europe and Africa because i don't think you know much about South Asia or do you just looking photos on skyscrapercity ?
If you look at Cities around the world first the American continent Seattle would not make it in top twenty
New York
Chicago
Los Angeles
San Francisco
Houston
Denver
Dallas
Toronto
Montreal
Vancouver
Panama City
Caracas
Lima
Sao Paulo
Bogota
Buenos Aires
Mexico City
Miami
Santiago
Calgary
Edmonton
So which is your top twenty cities in American continent ? all these cities are better than Africa, Europe, Asia except just a few like Dubai Hong Kong Shanghai Singapore Bangkok jakarta Manila Tokyo Seoul Kuala Lumpur rest playing catch up with the best in the world .
American cities were head and shoulder above for over 80 years with tallest skyscrapers 6 and 8 lane highways shopping malls metros etc etc

Panama income is just a shipping route in and out from Asia and American continent The Panama Canal like the Suez Canal in Egypt made it easier and quicker from Asia and Europe

It appears you do not know much about panama besides its canal. For your information, banking and Financial Services yield about 8% of the country's GDP.

A small central American country with a Panama Canal financial and banking earns 8% of the country's gdp then tourism Panama Canal must generate rest of 92% of the gdp .Panama City has a great skyline and a great city with many tall skyscrapers but it's only a small country so don't compare it with with the big economic superpowers the top ten are
USA
China
Japan
Germany
UK
France
India
Brazil
Italy
Canada
Panama a country population of about 3.8 million and a economy is on par with likes of Costa Rica Lebanon Tunisia around 88th place in the world economic league .
The worlds largest cities Tokyo 37 million Shanghai 35 million etc etc so what is Panama ?

Mumbai is the only city in the world that resembles New York and there some 15 supertalls under construction in Mumbai, by 2020 the city of Mumbai will look a bit more like New York City.
Are you really freaking comparing Mumbai with New York? Seriously? Sorry to break it out to you but Mumbai on no scale catches up to NY to be THAT global city we're talking (except for its size). I love your love for mumbai thou

Cities in South Asia nowhere near to 50 best skylines in the world ?
Mumbai comes in top 30 best skylines in the world and i told you before the most supertalls are now built in Mumbai right now but you do not check your facts .
According to Emporis Mumbai is 20th city with the most skyscrapers in the world .
According to Wiki Mumbai is 15th in the world with skyscrapers above 150 meters .
Seattle could be better than Lima or Edmonton but it would be better than most cities in Asia except Hong Kong Shanghai Tokyo Seoul Bangkok Jakarta Dubai Shanghai and better than every cities in Europe and Africa .
As for Bollywood and Hollywood, India and USA are similar countries with worlds largest democracies free courts free press largest film industries and white and dark skinned people fast foods,freeways luxury homes and apartments billionaires and millionaires film stars,hundreds of cities with airports .Washington is similar to New Delhi and New York is similar to Mumbai and Indian Aryan race are descendants of European race that's in India some people are with white skin blue and green eyes in Northern India.

But from one of the latest pic, i don't find mumbai's skyline is attractive. Nice bridge though. Probably wait for another 5-10 years for those supertalls completed and construction dusts to go off before we put mumbai into top 30

Other than mumbai, no other south asian cities are able to break through top 30 skyline for the next few decades. And please don't put india the same as usa. Its a completely different world. The democracy in india is obsolete, its too complex and draggin the nation back to few years. And all these infrastructures whatever airport high end apartments etc are also can be found in many countries such as indonesia and china. Regarding race, it gots nth to do with the skyline

I bet, you haven't seen any European skyline.

The Top5 - Moscow, Istanbul, Paris, London and Frankfurt/Main are all better than

Edmonton, Lima, Bogota, Caracas or Buenos Aires.

Skyscraper cities best ranking list put Mumbai 29th best skyline in the world and another website put Mumbai at 20th best skyline in the world .
Both India and USA are similar countries with world's largest democracies free press free elections free courts hollywood and bollywood film stars rich billionaires and millionaires which you people in Far East except Japan can only dream of .

Moscow and Istanbul at least have more skyscrapers than Seattle. And also taller buildings.

The skylines are perhaps not quite as nice as in Seattle.

So what? Even if ranked in top 30 but what i see quality is not there. No distinct skyline, alot construction dust, slum house beside skyscrapers and few glassy buildings.


If u think india and usa is the same, usa is 60 years ahead india, japan 40 and china 30 years ahead india. Number of billionaires also lose to china, a country that u think has no freedom. Why a communist country can do much better than world largest democracy? Think!
