Isn't part of the Hong Kong skyline on an island? The Manhattan skyline is on Manhattan Island.

Does it mean a city located on an island or an island-city?

Well, he said Best skyline located on an island. We are discussing skylines and not cities. There is also Honolulu.

Tokyo, Jakarta, and Manila. If you want an even bigger stretch (but still valid I guess?) Melbourne and Sydney.

Edit: Yes, London too, of course.

He has to say what he means. I can change the thread title to however he wants it to read.

Montreal would be another candidate, possibly my favourite city in the world. It's located on a few islands in the St. Lawrence River.

Both Manhattan and HK Island are arguably the greatest skylines in the world. And are located in an island!

Of the ones mentioned thus far:

1. Manhattan
2. Hong Kong
3. Singapore
4. Montreal



The others either don't have a skyline or are beyond the intention of the thread. The cities above pretty much take up the entire island they're on, or more than that.
