According to the categories above, this is my opinion.
Density: 7
Planning: 9
Building Height: 8.5
Modern: 8.5
Overall: 8.25

I personally don't think that KL skyline is that dense. But the planning is pretty good. Except the Petronas, other buildings are not that tall.

7.5/10. It just isnt that impressive to me. The Petronas are entirely out of scale compared to the remainder of KL's skyscrapers. The Petronas belong in city that can atleast match their caliber. Kuala Lumpur seems to be a very lush, tropical city and I believe that that type of climate blends well with skyscrapers, and I love the Menara Maybank. So, regardless of the misplaced Petronas, it's a city worth visiting to me. Just a little overrated.

2 vote 3or less....they must be kidding
Be serious



Who ever heard of Kuala Lumpur before the Petronas was built? Virtually no one.
I am one of those people who voted 3 or less. No joke here. I am DEAD SERIOUS. Every time I see the Petronas, I'm filled with disgust, utter disgust.

i heard of KL since as i'm as young as i can remember!! even now, not many ppl heard of KL. and this thread is not for you to rate how famous a city is, it is rating for a skyline.

ppl may have different taste. but don't u have better words to say when u dislike a building?? what if i tell u sears tower sucks. u won't like it, will u??

This argument is old!

If you;ve not heard of KL before doesn't mean that 'the rest of the world' doesn't.

Grow up and be aware that there are many other people whom are aware of cities like Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur, Manila, Bangkok, Jakarta and Singapore before the likes of London, New York, Los Angeles, Paris and San Francisco.

I've been there last year...

It's a modern city, clean and really well planned, however the Amazing Trio (Menara KL and Petronas twins) are really making it up !!!

9/10

Putting it in simpler terms, I cannot appreciate the skyline of Kuala Lumpur. It just doesn't strike me and say look at me! 4.5!
