If the growth (points) is the same for next year.
Manila could easily surpass Singapore next year!

Chongging in 2 years?
It will be a good battle between Manila and Chongging for the top 10!

Never thought Manila would have a chance to break in the top 10, some time in the near future!


Bangkok at number 9, is sitting comfortably there. Will take many years to catch up to Bangkok.
I don't see any cities contesting Bangkok's position in the next 5 years or so..

@Isaidso thanks for the points comparison

actually... YES.

Isn't it already enough that you have posted those pictures repeatedly on other threads?

No problem, I've been itching to do it but didn't have access to the old list till that guy posted a link to the baidu site. We could see Manila at #10 next year as the pace of construction seems to be maintaining its pace. It will be a 3 horse race for that 10th spot between Manila, Singapore, and Chongqing.

Shenzhen will zoom past Guangzhou and Chicago to sit in 6th. Toronto will have to do even better than it did last year to stay with KL and Jakarta while all 3 will reel in Seoul and Singapore.

My prediction for next year's list:

01. Hong Kong
02. New York
03. Dubai
04. Shanghai
05. Tokyo
06. Shenzhen
07. Chicago
08. Guangzhou
09. Bangkok
10. Manila

wherefore, we're forbidden posting pics here just because we don't share thoughts that interest you. is that what you meant? I don't see any problem as long as they are no OT

I did not say you are forbidden

Just try to be more relevant.
Just because the picture is a skyline, it doesn't make it on topic.

I have seen what's been going on the Asian thread.. and i would hate it if this thread becomes like that too... (by the same people..)

But the title of the thread is Best Skylines by 2025. Present a plausible argument for this by at least showing us what is planned or under construction or why you think Manila will remain one of the best skylines by 2025.

Actually, on this thread, you do have to join in the discussion just by the title of the thread.

I was just happy about Manila being included on the list, so I posted at least the very latest pics

moving on...

That picture of Bangkok is amazing Would love to see something similar with the upcoming towers rendered. That would give us a very good idea of what this amazing skyline will look in 2025

Yes, I didn't realize that was Bangkok because I've never seen it from that angle. What a massive skyline.

Agree, it is a very unusual angle. Note that the city's tallest, the Baiyoke II Tower, does not appear on the picture. I wonder if the photo was taken atop this tower.

Manila, Bangkok, and Jakarta don't get the attention they deserve, but I think that will change over the next few years. All 3 are huge, but just need a few signature towers to make them stand out.

Shenzhen would have been the best skyline in the world by a long distance if it had a singular skyline, but all of its clusters are multiple kilometers apart from each other. Nevertheless, each cluster on average will have 4 supertall (<300m) and 10 skyscraper (200-299m) by 2025 (Only the current U/C buildings are being considered, many more may be built if other proposals are realized) Shenzhen has 4 main cluster of skyscrapers- Futian, Luohu, Nanshan and Longgang. Some cluster have more quantity of skyscrapers than the others. Luohu was the first area to develop and Shenzhen's first supertall and present tallest built is situated here. Futian is the current CBD of Shenzhen with highest amount of supertalls and skyscrapers (<200m) U/C and built. Nanshan could become the next CBD and has the highest number of supertalls proposed to be built in that area.

As I mentioned above, none of those clusters will have an visually impactful skyline like Chicago or Shanghai because of the large distance between each cluster. Gradually, all the clusters will combine as the surrounding areas expand (by 2025 expectedly). Once that happens, Shenzhen will have the largest continuous skyline in the world. It won't be as dense as Hong Kong or New York though.
