According to diserio.com, Kuala Lumpur is probably the most impressive city worldwide that has less than 2 million residents. (maybe after Dubai now)

Marvelous modern buildings reach the sky here, and while the skyline is not exactly the densest, it does allow buildings to soar and stand out. Kuala Lumpur has 10 structures standing over 200 meters tall with three of them being in the 25 tallest buildings worldwide. Kuala Lumpur is also home to the tallest twin buildings, the Petronas Towers as well as the peaking, 420 meter Menara Kuala Lumpur Tower. Along with Singapore are said to be the frontier cities to boom from the Southeast Asian economic revolution.

TOP 20 ASIAN SKYLINES

1. Hong Kong - 86,917 pts
2. Dubai - 23,733 pts

7. Chongqing
8. Shenzhen
9. Singapore - 9,048 pts

The following skyline ranking is based on the height of buildings, as well as the number of buildings above 90 m (or about a 25 story building). This kind of ranking favors cities with many mid-rise buildings. For example, a skyline with twenty 295 ft. buildings would rank higher than a skyline with ten 500-foot buildings.

1. Hong Kong
2. New York City
3. Dubai
4. Tokyo
5. Shanghai
6. Chicago
7. Bangkok
8. Guangzhou
9. Kuala Lumpur
10. Singapore


Skyscrapers by Region (Continent / Buildings / Percent)

1 Asia 35,240 32.16 %
2 Europe 26,070 23.79 %
3 North America 26,068 23.79 %
4 South America 18,253 16.66 %
5 Oceania 2,852 2.60 %
6 Africa 1,079 0.98 %

I don't think there's a reliable database of skyscraper data worldwide, so any ranking based on building heights is highly susceptible to error.

I find this type of rating "only covering one side"... there are lots of other perspectives for skyline consideration ranking... such as density, how the buildings blend in together into a skyline, the highrise designs, and also personal preferences...

I dont think Taipei's skyline is that bad that it should be 59 in the world.
