I'm very impressed of the skylines in Chinese cities, by the shear number of high rises and the nicely arranged high ways. Looking at some Chinese cities, they could go head to head with Brazil's Sao Paulo someday. My personal favorite Asian skyline has to be Bangkok or Shanghai.

When I see it, Chinese cities have better skyline compared to their Brazilian counterparts. Brazilian cities have the density but they lack height. Sao Paolo's tallest doesn't even reach above 600 ft.

Busan, South Korea

Busan cannot be one of the best skyline cities in Asia now but it is worth saying in this thread.
These four pics were taken by mcwoofer in dcinside.

Busan is actually a very big port in East Asia, as the key Korean city along the coast, and within close distance to Japan and China.

Though this thread has lovely pictures of East Asian cities like Hong Kong, Seoul, Jakarta, Manila, KL, and Shanghai, where's the photos of the western Asian cities like Dubai, New Delhi, Columbo, Dhaka and Qatar?

KUALA LUMPUR, MALAYSIA

HK, Shanghai, Singapore, Manila, Jakarta is good...

But not much of KL is posted here... so here's some...
For a city of about 3-5 million only, I think KL is pretty build up!
