Well, Kaohsiung (Taiwan) is one of underrated skylines in the world.
The tallest tower of Kaohsing, Tuntex sky tower, is 348m tall, just 33m shorter than Empire state building in NY.

Vancouver is not underrated. It ranks high on lots of people's lists.

I agree with you.
I saw that Vancouver ranks high on many people's list, even someone's top 10 world best skylines.

On the other hand, Miami in US is quite underrated by people these days.
Miami has a quite beautiful skyline in front of the beach and sea.

These are the cities which has buildings over 300m and some buildings over 200m. But it seems that these cities are simply ignored by many people here.
Of course, the height is not everything but you can't simply ignore the height as one of important factors to make the big impact.

No order (As of 2013)
1. Kuwait city : the tallest tower - 400m, 4 buildings over 200m
2. Doha : the tallest tower - 300m, 14 builings over 200m
3. Busan : the tallest tower - 300m, 14 buildings over 200m
4. Incheon : the tallest tower - 305m, 4 buildings over 200m
5. Tianjin : the tallest tower -337m, 17 buildings over 200m
6. Nanjing : the tallest tower - 450m, 11 buildings over 200m
7. Kaohsion : the tallest tower - 348m, 1 buildings over 200m
8. Osaka : the tallest tower - 300m, 4 buildings over 200m

I agree. Incheon is really impressive and absolutely underrated.

I think it's underrated too, but I understand why. The skyline is very uniform in height and architectural styles. Most of the skyline was built in the 21st century, so we don't have much older architecture and we don't yet have any really tall buildings to accent the skyline though we do have them planned. It will be more highly regarded in the future.

Busan is an awesome one! It also has another building close to 950'/280m basically topping out in a different area. Really nice density and I love the tallest cluster!

Nanjing is a great skyline and I have it slotted as 6th in China, right between Chongqing and Beijing.

Brussels is often overlooked but is a good candidate for top 10-12 in Europe.

Osaka is extremely expansive and probably a real monster in person.

Many of the others listed are also good but I find these to be the ones that stick out so far as most underrated.

Saw Philly on the first page, but I just wanted to add that I agree! I was there 2 days ago and was very impressed with the density and size!

I think sometimes people confuse "skylines" with "settings".
