2. Singapore, Singapore: Sexy, Sophisticated and Trend-setting skyline


3. Metro-Manila, Philippines: virtually unknown skyline out of asia, but extremely impressive: Old Urban meets Ultra-New Urban Asia

Just a general question to everyone nominating: Have u even been to the Asia subforums to look at what Asian cities have to offer??? and fyi, Tokyo only has Shinjuku-ku skyline, and a few scrapers in Roppongi.. even though its an amazing city, it hardly has a skyline when compared to somewhere like Bangkok.

Salamat ncbmandy! I just wanted people to be aware that Asia has more cities and skylines than just the well known ones .. I dont mean to offend anyone, i'm just saying for them to give the lesser known cities' skylines a chance to be seen objectively example is Tokyo: Tokyo is a nice city, in fact its an amazing city, but skyline-wise it isnt as impressive as Bangkok, Makati or Kuala Lumpur.. etc.. There ARE talls and supertalls in many other Asian cities beside the C.J.K 3 (HK, Tokyo, Seoul)...

HK has the best skyline dense and with variety and SG with aesthetically pleasing skyline os I'll just leave them out from the list since there're already many nominations of both cites here.
