Not unknown like those chinese cities, but i cant recall reading up on forum members talking much about it. While its one shiny, compact and tall skyline. I would place it in USA top 5 or even top 3 any time.

I don't know why Guangzhou and Shenzhen are underrated. They have great skylines already and are still developing.

This is just an old picture of Dubai. Tallest ones to the left are the Emirates Towers.

They are great skylines that should be top 10 world wide IMHO but they are not. London and Moscow is apparently "better". SZ and GZ make top 20 in SCC but that's because we know a little better. Many skyline rankings outside of SCC don't even mention them.

Very underrated? Why? There are suburbs in kazachstan that are more dense

The setting the city lies in is pretty spectacular, but it doesn't really have a "skyline". You can't really compare it to any of the cities mentioned in this thread. Nice city, though.

I think they are underrated because the quality of life is horrible in those cities. Far Eastern cities are heavily polluted. There aren't much cultural activities, if there are any. Crime rates are very high. The "newly" constructed Asian cities are not multicultural and the population is ridiculously high. Everything is not about buildings but the quality of life in those buildings. This is why, I believe, those cities don't seem attractive to us, "westerners". We want cities full of social activities, concerts, museums, parks, clubs etc.

This is China. What about Seoul, Busan, Incheon, Tokyo or Osaka? Crime rates are very low, lots of cultural activities, normal rate of pollution, multicultural society is increasing, especially in Korea (it has now the record number of 1'550'000 foreigner), beautiful skyscrapers and a lot of parks, clubs, museums etc... So, you describe only Chinese cities, not Far Eastern cities
