WOW this pictures from hongkong are amazing, but i think that that Dubai will have a bigger skyline in the future (but the most beoutiful skyline is in HK without no doubt. Now, in 2050, 2100. Always.)

Even in the future Dubai is light years away from HK for having a bigger skyline! Dubai can't match the quantity and density that HK has.

But Dubai may have the possibility of a taller skyline but you may not know, HK might build a scraper taller than The Burj sometime in the future

Metro Manila is larger than HK in terms of population. But HK is denser and more vertical.

You got around 7 million and limited land. So the only choice is to build up.

Because that area is primarily residential with a few commercial and industrial high-rises.
