Sounds like Hong Kong and Shanghai are shoe-ins, but I'll vote for them anyway. Then mix it up a bit with the third choice.

Hong Kong
Shanghai
Lhasa, Tibet.

hong kong lah. no contest! its got film persona and celebrity suicide all mixed up in it! (i love leslie cheung).

tokyo too. because its just so staggering to imagine the vastness of the japanese success story. the urban canyons! howling wind!

taipei. because it is emblematic of all the taiwan pop culture i admire - ximenting manga, sunyanzi mtvs, idol love dramas with cityscapes by night.

KL. because 8 years ago my train pulled into the klang valley at dawn and i saw the twin towers sparkling in the distance like a mirage.

shanghai. because i'll forever remember school trip '98 when i strolled along the bund at night and saw epic personified in the pearl tower. shrouded in fog! looming with the groan of a container vessel passing at her feet!

interesting how these cities are mostly mongoloid.

shanghai. slowly turning into a pearl of orient tower fan jin mao is just sweetness

manila. hometown bias here, but by no means it's a lame vote, metro manila's got a kick-ass skyline too, and it's still growing upwards.

singapore. i've been there like...... 4 times now but you just gotta keep looking at the skyline. love it.


btw what's up with all these 5-10 nominations

oh i was just waxing lyrical about all these cities because they all have something singapore doesn't: the human component to the urbanscape in terms of popular culture phenomena. err. hard to phrase.

Hongkong - head and shoulders above the rest
Singapore - love the white facade of the buildings!

Jakarta - my hometown

From that angle it actually looks like Orchard Road.
