Update my Favorite Top 10 for now... Tokyo and Seoul have nice skyline, but I think too much box-shaped buildings, and for Dubai, I think it's still an un-finished city...

1. Hong Kong
2. Shanghai
3. Kuala Lumpur
4. Singapore
5. Manila
6. Jakarta
7. Bangkok
8. Tokyo
9. Seoul
10. Dubai

the topic says, discuss the best Asian skyline . I think all of us already know that it's Hong Kong. Lets split into sub-regions

Far East- Hong Kong, followed by Shanghai , Chongqing
Southeast Asia- Kuala Lumpur, followed by Singapore, Bangkok-Jakarta ( tie )
South Asia- Mumbai, followed by Colombo, Bangalore
MiddleEast- Dubai, followed by Doha, Tehran
Central Asia- Astana, followed by Tashkent, Almaty

Skyline too.

I can't think of any other cities in ASEAN that is comparable to KL when it comes to skyline. Could you name any if you don't mind ? And excuse me, "far too small " ? Do you know how huge the metro area of KL is ?

But of course KL's skyline is not as densed or even close to the standards of many secondary Chinese cities as like Chongqing & Shenzhen.

I think when it comes to skyline beauty in Southeast Asia, there are basically three champions in 3 different categories... each is unique and splendid on its own. This is how I see the Southeast Asia champions -

1. Singapore - For its cleanliness, organised and no-bullshits skyline. Just like the country itself, everything is well-maintained but nothing too fanciful to have the wow factor. Tall buildings are almost everywhere on the island but most are architecturally "careful".

2. KL - For its dynamic architecture. Tall in one part then short in another, sharp in one part but curvy on the other. There are many smaller clusters of skyline in the metro area which are dwarfed by the skyline in the city proper. But for a smaller city like KL, the skyline is truly commendable.

3. Bangkok - For its mass and density. Looking at the pics in this forum, I can't help but look at the pictures again and again. The city is certainly booming and tall buildings are spreading out in hundreds. Bangkok will claim the crown in Southeast Asia if they have more iconic towers (and they need many more), I guess.

yes been to KL many times and it is one off the smaller "big" citys in the region, its just the central parts that have good buildings and thats the skyline that impress me, but the rest .. nope . . i prefere Bangkok for it chear size and density, never been to manila but makati impress me.

KL will get there, alot of projects going on but for me right now Petronas is it. (still top 5 buildings in the world) .. but for me its just not enough. and the cityplan is a bit to "park like" to get the real density that i like.

don't know witch one of singapore and KL i prefere . . havn't been there for many years. . so well . .for now KL #3 in the region



and yes . . China is a diffrent world
