I think Bank Of America Tower in Charlotte should be nominated. One of the best crown I ever seen and even better at night.

The best lid skyscraper is the Burj Al Arab.

How I wish they lit Swiss Re up like this more often:



I particularly like Torre Agbar, the centre in HK, ESB and Chrysler

i think i am going to have to concur with the majority, The Centre in hong kong has flash and class... The Petronas Towers just look like a ridiculous night club.

Not sure about ONE skyscraper, but as a whole, HK does it best.

I dislike the Centre but love some of the pics posted on here.

If we're talking about lighting and not just generally but at a specific time - surely one of the buildings involved in the Symphony of Lights should take the crown?

Surprised there's no mentions for BoC.

Honestly, I kinda liked BoC without those lighting effects.

It just hit me - why HK's skyline is far more 'glitzy' than the modest yet majestic Chicago skyline (other than the fact that the SoL was brought in to attract even more tourists after the hit HK took from SARS).

It's to do with money...

The BoC's changing lighting scheme is quite new, so I won't be surprised if people don't know about it yet. A lot of the photos shown here don't illustrate the moving nature of the lights - mine included.

The Center


Highcliff and Summit
are also well lit. Similar to the Center, the tops change colour over time.

Central Plaza







Central -- HSBC


I think I have a new favourite -- AIG Tower







It blows my mind.

When it comes to lighting effects, HK is definitely the winner!

man.. that's a waste of electricity.. ahhaha
but yeah.. I reckon buildings in HongKong are definitely best lit..

In Jakarta, we cant really see a lot of buildings being lit up, only on special occasions.. cause the government have a policy of light pollution.. cause when all the buildings are lit.. there's too much light on the ground.. and hence you cant see the stars and the sky anymore.. and plus... as well.. of course to conserve energy and electricity..
