Skyline like HK are overrated because they are very impressive! That's why I'll choose HK as the best skyline in Asia

HK, no question, is by far the best.

2- Shanghai/Singapore
3- Seoul/Tokyo/Bangkok/Shenzhen/Guangzhou/Manila
4- Jakarta/Kuala Lumpur

IMO, I think Kuala Lumpur is overrated. Everyone says "Ooh... the Petronas.. 10!" Really though, the Petrona Towers do not look good in a skyline (don't get me wrong, it is awesome individually). Its way too massive and wide.

If I'm gonna rate it, I put Kuala Lumpur over Jakarta and Manila. And The Petronas fits well for KL's skyline plus the Menera Telecom and other future projects. Manila is more for the fourth position along with Jakarta. Though it has alot of skyscrapers and an impressive skyline, Manila lack supertalls and iconic scrapers.

Manila's skyline is one of the best in Asia but again, most of their buildings lack height compared to other Asian cities. But if Skycity and/or Lopez Centre is completed then it will jump up

Anyway this is how I judge skylines

1) The look, if it's photogenic or not
2) Organization
3) Density / Quantity
4) Quality
5) The number of tall buildings and height
6) Individual collection of skyscrapers or no. of landmark scrapers in the city.

#1 Hong Kong
#2 Shanghai

Beijing and Shenzhen should also be contenders for the 3rd spot.

Beijing and Shenzhen? To me, there are alot of cities around The Far East that have better skylines than those!

You're entitled to your opinion, and so am I. I love Singapore's skyline, and I don't think it's overrated at all.

I agreee with RP1 that we have our own opinions but we also have to defend our city skylines as well

Leeigh, in my ratings, I put Singapore over Manila and Seoul. At least Singapore has an organized skyline compared to Seoul!

in asia, supertall(300m structure) buildings has been raise every where..
i think maybe 10-20 years later.. asian top 5 cities will be change.. bcoz
now(2005-2010) cities like bangkok/jakarta/manila/KL/seoul has/would build their own supertall srtucture.

this is top 10 asian skyline..
This list is based on the average vote that has been given to a city skyline and cityscape at the Rate Our Skylines section at the forums.

rank worldrank and name avg.vote voters


1 Hong Kong - China 9.73 106
2 Shanghai - China 9.05 708
3 Singapore 9.05 695
4 Tokyo - Japan 8.94 657
5 Kuala Lumpur - Malaysia 8.86 652
6 Seoul - South Korea 8.71 420
7 Shenzhen - China 8.64 386
8 Bangkok - Thailand 8.59 1043
9 Dubai - UAE 8.24 494
10 Jakarta - Indonesia 8.23 531



my personal top 5

1.HK
2.SHANGHAI
3.SINGAPORE
4.KUALA LUMPUR
5.DUBAI


my question is.. soon izzit singapore still in top 5 despite without any supertall ??

Looks like Manila isn't ranked with the top ten despite an impressive skyline! Singapore may not have scrapers over 300m but they have a nice layout, density and top quality buildings.

we used to be in the top 5 but the MM thread was re-started by the moderator because lots of people are downvoting MM. It was a public poll by the way.

Well those who downvote MM are the haters who have a grudge on the city!
