I'm not sure if this one has been posted before. Familiar angle, almost akin to the view of NY from the ESB or Chicago from the Sears Tower:

Pity the BoC and Cheung Kong aren't as well lit up as they can be in that pic.

It's a dated picture anyway. Hanoi Road has barely risen.

Hong Kong is really awesome, the skyscrapers make an excellent skyline over the city.

It takes more than the scrapers. HK's geographical features matter as well.

Natural settings are an important part of a good skyline. That being said, cities such as Shanghai may not have a lot of geographical features, but the massive scale of the skyline makes quite an awesome sight nevertheless.

But they still have the Huangpu River which creates a breathtaking scenery especially taking pics of Lujiazui

A river is not a lot of geographical features though. In fact, most large cities have a river or sea setting.

Or both. Take NYC for example. It may not have the geographical features HK has but it has a breathtaking skyline. Kuala Lumpur on the other hand doesn't have a coastal setting but mountains can make it up.

It's inappropriate to isolate one of many factors that make up a good skyline to make a conclusion. They all work together, and cannot be evaluated in isolation.
