Los Angeles, CA

Downtown LA's skyline itself is overrated, but its entire city skyline is actually underrated (because it's impossible to capture all its skylines in one photo). Here's two photos from me that captures two large clusters mixed with DTLA. Unfortunately, there is still so many other clusters missing in these photos because LA is so large. What's interesting is that many of these skyline clusters are growing.

Fun fact: Did you know LA's linear downtown stretches from the heart of Downtown LA to the beach in Santa Monica, and it's 16 miles long.

LA is easily underrated. Sure we have a downtown cluster, but we have various other hotspots such as Century City, Koreatown, Mid Wilshire, Hollywood, the Westside, and the Beverly Cluster.

Here is everything not Downtown, while still not showing Koreatown and leaving out dozens of Wilshire high rises.

Beijing definitely has a very under-rated skyline. It rarely appears on peoples top 20 and is rarely mentioned when people talk about China's best skylines, but it should be up there, more so in a few years.

I know this might sound crazy but I think Chicago is in a way underrated. Part of it is that minus a few ~200m projects going up development is a bit slow at the moment, so people have forgotten about it. I always see it put after KL or Singapore on lists but it makes those skylines look tiny. While size isn't everything it's also beautiful.

Development is also slow in HK but people haven't forgotten about it.

It may not be the biggest skyline but it sure is nice and in my opinion underrated.

Beijing, Chongqing, Tokyo, Doha, Melbourne, Panama City, and Los Angeles. Perhaps Osaka too.

I agree that Chicago gets talked about way less than it should as there's relatively little high rise construction going on. I'm not sure if it's under rated though. Don't most people still put it in their top 5-6.... where it belongs?

Panama looks better at night than at morning, says a lot about the city street level, a pending matter the county must work on it ( bigger and better sidewalks, traffic light for pedestrians, cable trenching etc etc)

meanwhile Panama city best pics d be by night

Yes Agree. Penang is definitely one of the best places in Asia for a scenic view.
