Vancouver is #39 with 638 highrises, but this number doesn't includes those highrises in its 20 something near by suburbs. Otherwise the metro Vancouver highrises number could be easily over 800.

Taller makes it denser though, otherwise you could say favelas in Brazil and India are the densest because they have more buildings jammed together

Not necessarily. What matters is how tall the average building in the core is, not whether taller buildings exist. If you have 350 buildings over 100m then another 800 that are just 7-8 floors, the density could be less than a core that has 250 buildings over 100m, but then another 900 that are 20 floors. The first is taller, but not necessarily denser.

Paris is a great example of this. Outside of La Defense there aren't any tall buildings to speak of, but Parisian density is very high.

How many square kilometres is downtown Chicago? Is 'the Loop' (4.1 sq km) all of it, or do you need to add adjacent bits? Downtown Toronto is hard to quantify, but a good starting point is that it's 5 km from the lake to Yorkville and high rises the whole way. It's 1 km wide at it's narrowest and 3 km wide at the lake.

It beats Dubai too! You wouldn't think Vancouver would have more high rises, but it does.

In my humble opinion, Seoul is NOT the most desenst skyine in the world yet.
But Seoul can be one of densest skylines in the world, whatever Emporis, skyscraperpage, wikipedia and other internet sources have wrong numbers of buildings in Seoul. Even though Seoul still lacks height because of sky limitation regulation...currently there are only 14 buildings over 200m.

Allow me to post Seoul's densest skyline here, Thanks in advance.

For Shanghai I've seen a figure of 13,000.

Zhujiang city seems to me quite loose, not dense at all. Shanghai Lujiazui is much denser. I still come for Shanghai, and more exactly for its Puxi part that beats NY easily.

I have to admit that I'm impressed by São Paulo skyline. I like the fact that it is very dense and much spread across. I like such cities. And I like pretty much the way the buildings look like.
