There are so many places to go with a gf/bf in HK.

Surburbian America is a bit more boring... but a lot more privacy

Suburban NYC isn't much different than other suburbia in the rest of the US.

Jakarta has a pretty nice glassy skyline. Much better than concrete skylines like Manila and such.

Manila's skyline isn't all concrete. In fact the tallest buildings are a combination of glass & steel.

Yes, I totally knew that. I'm talking about everything else like the Manila Bay skyline and Quezon City's Eastwood.

Eastwood isn't a major skyline in Metro Manila compared to Makati or Ortigas.

As for Manila Bay, the buildings there are mostly condos though 1322 Roxas Blvd isn't that bad.

Quite a huge density drop. Skyline should look more defined if the viewpoint is a bit more towards the left.
