With highrise building(>100m according to SSC definition). Hong Kong is the densest :
just 1,104 km2 but nearly 3000 building 100m+ and about 120 building 200m+.
Next:
2.Shanghai
3.New York
4.Shenzhen
5.Guangzhou

And supertall densest skyline is certainly Dubai
Hong Kong is mostly mountains and islands - only about 273 sq km are urban

We can not build buildings in the mountains but we can build buildings in the park right?and the park is not in the suburbs but in the middle of the skyline.

The fact is that Hong Kong has MUCH more 100m+ Buildings in a MUCH more limited space ( no more than 263 sqm of urban area ) ...

Hong Kong

Here's a link to great interactive, panoramic views of Hong Kong which by the way, in my opinion, has the greatest high-rise density.

This one originally post by JuanPaulo on the World's Best Skylines thread I think is a good one for showing Manhattan density.

Basically any aerial photograph of Manhattan will show just how dense it is. It isn't a one trick pony with a certain angle that makes it look huge, or really dense... it really is huge, and really is dense!

Photos don't quite do it justice.

In terms of skyscraper density, I'd say Hong Kong and NYC are in a league of their own.

Yeah, Manila is in the 10 mil+ population range. But it's really only Makati (the AYala Makati -- not the old Makati) that is quite dense. And that's maybe 3 or 4 dozen highrises that's it. That's nothing compared to NYC, Hong Kong, Sao Paulo, Chongquing. Those clusters of Ortigas, Alabang are only like 2 dozen or less than 2 dozen skyscrapers. And Manilans should be glad that is all they're getting. It would be horrible to have even more.
