while i am a malaysian myself as i follow the development of Jakarta through their Indonesian Forum. and i'm really sure their new towers/buildings are nicely designed (limited to those within their CBD). well, as i mentioned in malaysian forum that i came out with conclusion on why malaysian designed buildings are not nice, it is all because of cost cutting...

There are alot of cities around the world that are dense as NY but are not in the top 3.

NY is in the top 3 not just density but also height and its collection of skyscrapers from Art-Deco to Post Modernism. Plus it has the ESB and Chrysler which are landmarks.

I think ignorance has play in how these rankings come out sometimes. We know South American cities such as Sao Paulo are far more dense with skyscrapers, and European cities have a far more varied architectural history, yet the rankings still come out differently although people still argue the reasons include history and density.

That's what I thought as well. People believe NYC is the best skyline just because it is one of the oldest and most dense at the same time.

Not me though I consider it as among the best. And almost everyone especially will put NY on the top 3. The city deserves it!

Just my 2 cents on this one. Back to Asia

actually a 'discussion' or argument about which asian city has the best skyline is a non sense at the very beginning...

bcoz one can not justify what is the 'best' as it is a subjective word. beauty, density, modern, whatever,...how about if we stop this 'discussion' and post skyline pictures that we love most

Why don't you comment on your own country? You're Filipino right?

This is what I would rather see for HK or what other forumers should see! Shots of the other parts of the city and not just focusing on the city centre.
