i can really see oweeyman's passion in promoting our Jakarta though (and truly appreciate it), but it would be better if we do not bombard straight away with too much pictures. I think it would be better if we do it slowly and steadily... maybe one post each day with 3-5 pictures (and not being repetitive) would be sufficient?

In term of dense, I think even Indonesian forumers have admitted that Jakarta is less dense than those two cities. But in term of buildings' design quality, there will be different case.

Base on review, rankings, and point of views (esp. in this thread) are not really valid too, as there is a country (or maybe countries) who has more aggressive forumers than others. If we use that parameters, I think even Singapore will lose to Manila

Yeah, it's your opinion, it's OK. But the previous person who said that Jakarta's new buildings have much better design than those in KL is a Malaysian. So there is no problem with fairness.

well if you rate based on density alone then that is your choice... but for me I take consideration of the highrise designs in Jakarta when saying that the Jakarta skyline is one of the best in Southeast Asia... for me that's a competitive edge that Jakarta has when compared to the other SEA skylines... anyways if the photographer can find very good angles then Jakarta would look dense as any other skylines would...

to put it in another way, first of all I really disliked the way that the Jakarta skyline is laid out... it is way too spread (the city center is spread out for 7 km...). but after another look of the Jakarta skyline I come to appreciate that there are many sides and angles to choose from to admire the Jakarta skyline... we are not focused on just one area... and while looking from different sides of the Jakarta skyline there would be highrises that would be striking in design that makes the skyline nice to look at... so that's where my consideration of Jakarta as having one of the best skyline in SEA comes from...

of course we are still far away for the best Asian skyline... we totally lose when it comes to highrise designs and density from cities such as Hong Kong, Shanghai, Shenzhen, Chongqing, Dubai, etc.

what do you mean by two different city with different project...? i don't understand this part. basically what I know is that both cities are rapidly expanding in highrises projects...

of course I still say that the best skyline in Southeast Asia would be Kuala Lumpur...

I still believe that density is still the basis of a very good skyline. New York is one of the world's top 3 because of its density not its old buildings.
