I have always been fascinated by the skyline. nicely clustered.
KL is going to get a skyscraper that looks like Rizal Tower.
So, I give Makati a 9/10

Damn!! I'm getting slow these days.... I was just about to start this thread!!

Anyways, thanks Luis! Thanks for the pics

For those who don't know, Makati City is part of the Manila Metro area. It is the financial center of the Philippines.

I love Makati....I rate it 9.5/10, but since I'm hometown bais, i'll rate it 10/10 anyways... hehehe...

btw, thanks for posting additional pics, queetz. Including my panorama

Here are some more pics:

That's right! Makati City isn't the only skyscraper mecca in Metro Manila but it is the biggest one. Plus there is Manila, Muntinlupa, Mandaluyong City and San Juan, although their skylines ain't that big(but they are still tall). I shall start a Rate Our Skylines thread for Ortigas when I get back to Canada in January and get the new pics uploaded in my webspace and will also start a Manila thread afterwards. You guys will love my Ortigas pic taken from One San Miguel Avenue, a 54 storey skyscraper!
