I must mention this stunning city whose name has been dwarfed by Hong Kong, Shanghai and the likes...

SHENZHEN (pics from flickr.com)







The most amazing part is, this city is only 20-year-old

And others such as Chongqing, Dalian and Guangdong, Nanning..etc.... Sometimes I think Shanghai, Beijing and Hong Kong steal all the limelight from other Chinese cities as well

Given how fast the secondary cities are growing, even people who live on this side of the world may not recognize these skylines after a few years.

Tokyo is a bit underrated.
Beijing is overrated.

Beijing's skyline is really undefined. There are skyscraper clusters in multiple parts of the city and are not connected together at all.

I give Tokyo credit for its huge urban expanse, which gives it an amazing glow at night.

Actually, lights are not always turned off even when people are gone for the day. Reasoning can vary across regions but this is a common problem in the West as well. For example, insurance companies will jack up premiums if lights are not kept on at night to deter criminals.
