huh what you mean by ancient? Each city here has its own modern towers and modern infrastructure.

I just cant imagine putting all these south east asian cities together in one city... must be one hell of a skyline!

I'm surprised to see KL & BKK being classified as "ancient" skylines. They better build more 300m and above tall mosques and temples to live up to that title A gigantic pyramid or great wall surrounding the borders would be nice.

while im not surprised bcoz i know many of us here are just a blind 'patriot'...

that's why i say, a truly 'best skyline' should come along with quality living environment...

by just having 'ultra modern' with some fancy glassy facade without a proper living environment of its citizen, is only FAKE.

Forgive me kabayan, I just can't help but laugh. (I'm not trying to ridicule you or anyone!)
it's just that the classifications YOU made in YOUR OPINION just made my day!


Thanks! I needed that!
