While "sparsely placed" there certainly is more than just a "few" buildings. Not all of the buildings are tacky in my opinion. Some are incredibly futuristic. It's harsh to lump over 5000 skyscrapers together into the tacky folder.



My top three would be:

Hong Kong
Shanghai
Singapore

Well for sure Bhutan doesn't have a skyline.

Istanbul is quite debatable since it lies in Eurasia. But I look at Turkey as more associated with Europe than with Asia.

But Shanghai is one of the most interesting of the Asian skylines. It's very different compared back in the early 90s!
