Which is quite interesting and good it makes an impression and gives us an awe and wow factor. Just wonder how they look if they were placed pretty close to each other.

The whole definition of "dense" here has just been used so LOOSELY. I mean EACH CITY in the world has a small concentration of bldgs downtown -- BUT it doesn't mean it really falls under "densest." Just because a few buildings line up on a boulevard or two -- this group immediately posts it as "dense."

Or do you guys just like to post photos regardless of the validity of the topic??

tokyo has an interesting density. on a big scale (highrises) and a small scale (lowrises). because of all the small buildings clustered together you dont even realise that there are big buildings around in some places...

i say new york, hong kong, sao paulo and tokyo have the most impressive density over a bigger area (not just one pointy downtown).

The built up area of HK is very small , so we cannot include HK in this list of densest cities in giant area !

Built up area or built up skyline? The title of the thread is densest skyline and not necessarily densest city.

We all know that HK is the most vertical city in the world and that the biggest part of it's buit up area is developed with highrises , Hk doesn't have the notion of suburbs contrary to the others tentacular metropolises . Although it has some lowrises constructions ...

And even if you want to comparate HK's core ( HK Island) to Manhattan for example you'll find the difference of size too consequent ...

Well actually some parts of HK is connected to the mainland china, i dont remember but there should be a stream/canal running through the 2 train stations in SZ and HK. And if u do take the subway ride and u wil find a lot of emptiness because I think they wanted to be that way, nothing u can do about that

I kinda disagree that Vancouver is dense.

when I was there, it felt to me that Calgary is denser...
