excuse my ignorance but what city is that?

Individually I'm no fan of the design of those buildings, but I love the fact that each one of them is quite unique to the other in shape and facade.

I would dare say Metro Manila's skyline has overtaken Singapore's. Manila's continues to improve, and the numerous 'skylines within skylines' impress me more than sg's. Singapore's reminds me somewhat of Sydney's where it's great to see the first time up, but it's quite stagnant to the point you get bored of it. There's probably been 1 good building pop up in the Singaporean skyline in the 7-8 years I've been visiting there.

im from manila but i believe that Singapore skyline is ALOT better than our skyline(manila), and not only their skyline is great but also their whole city.

BTW shanghai is one of the best skyline in the world. im a filipino i dont want foreigners think that were rude,we hate it when they do it to us.do some research and know more before people comment of a structure or whatsoever. manila also have a nice skyline.

Their city is undoubtedly great, but I must agree that Manila has a larger skyline.

Urghhhh... are you sure? Singapore's skyline is not just about the postcard you always see you know... I think you should really tour around the whole island of urban jungle and be amazed by its "non-downtown" skylines, which I believe is much bigger and more massive than that of Manila's.

No offence, in terms of city size yes Manila is much larger. But when it comes to "skyline", Singapore's definitely is much larger. Just as Hong Kong is tiny but it's skyline is so large and quite unbeatable by others.
