A skyline, IMHO, is one where when you look at the bunch of skyscrapers, most often the CBD area, you can recognize the city without too much guessing. Therefore, I feel that many of the cities here talked about aren't worthy of being called a skyline. Most are merely just skyscraper districts here. In the case of Southeast Asia, one can easily recognize Kuala Lumpur and Singapore, and not Bangkok, Jakarta or Manila exactly because of this. It's not that the latter 3 are inferior, but the skyline is most often a planned silhouette.

Bangkok, Jakarta and Manila are "skylines" at their own right. Same with Seoul which also in the same description as the first three mentioned.

KL does have Petronas, which is one of the most iconic in Asia. But without it, would it still be recognized?

As with Manila, Makati alone already forms a descent skyline. What more of the other districts?

I would have loved to add Santiago to my list, but its lacking of construction to become a emerging skyline.

There are several projects in construction and also some proposals. The change has been dramatic in the last ten years.

KL too without Petronas is a "skyline" at its own right. Even without Petronas, we have 2 other supertalls erected since at turn of the century, and we keep erecting taller towers than most of our neighboring cities. There are 6 towers in KL higher than Jakarta's tallest, for example. It's just that people often associate KL with Petronas towers alone and nothing more. After all the twin towers are the first thing you see approaching KL, most important landmark to help you navigate while in KL, and the last bit of KL you will see when leaving. All because of the sheer size of the twins.
