Manila has a better skyline than Hong Kong? Yes manila has a great skyline but Hong Kong is still the best I think.

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 ??
We singaporeans always have this desire the government will want to scrape the law of 280m restriction. We look like a plateu already. However I think it is not the problem of height, but the quality and the style which shows and represents the country's years of acheievemnet. But I hope everyone will help to wish tht this restriction will stop and i think we will be able to build supertalls...

Yes WANCH, we know. HK is the center of the universe and even thinking that any city could possibly compete with it is no less then a crime against humanity. I mean honestly, what kind of person would deny the all holy greatness that is HK, not me, no sir.

I definitely got carried away with that "HK PRIDE" But our city earned it!

Anyway, lets take HK out of the picture! I would look at Shanghai as the best in Asia followed by Kuala Lumpur and Singapore.

BTW, Singapore's skyline would look great if it's had a freestanding structure just like the CNN tower in Toronto or the AMP in Sydney. How about that planned Fort Canning Tower?

No thanks. I think singapore looks great without having a need to copy what other cities have. We don need neon lights like hong kong also. Anyway this is the newest version of our city. Hope you guys like it.

P.S Oh yes HK has a skyline 100 times better than Seoul or Tokyo. How do we count that? Then Shanghai is 50 times lousier?

It is the Monsoon season so it is very cloudy every day, and cool too. People are wearing long-sleeved shirts too. Oh yes just for u guys information, during the cold snap in Asia during the first half of January, Singapore was also affected. We got a whole week of rain that caused temperatures plummeting to about the same degrees as Hong Kong during autumn, llike about 20-24c.

10-15 days a month during southeast monsoon (march-september)
15-23 days a month during north-east monsoon ( october-feb)

Usually the total amount of rain for a year is about 3500 mm. Sometimes it can go to 5000 mm. Erm temperatures go from 24-28.

But durin the cold snap last two weeks ago, we had to wear jackets too because we were affected by the cold. iT WAS about 20-22c.

Singapore's situation I think is the same as Hong Kong where there's a growing population and limited land. So the only choice is to build up.

Hi, I'm too lazy to search the google. Do you have an Idea of what's the total land area of Singapura and HK and their population? Thanks.

Singapore's total land is smaller than HK but it also has a smaller population.

Singapore's total land was 682.7 sq km while HK's is 1,042 sq km. But with all the reclamation happening is both cities, the land size is increasing
