My advise to Secaundis & fellow forumers:
- No flooding of photos please especially when they all look the same.
- Choose photos well. Post only those with very good quality and don't forget to quote the source.
- No posting of gdp per capita. (no need to brag about it). This is a skyline thread.
- This not a competition thread/showcase your own country skylines thread. Asia is big and most likely, there's a better skyline than your own city.

Thanks!

looks like Philipinos are so fascinated with thier city (like others had said...being patriotic...which is good i think)...it looks good at some point..but certainly not Hong Kong and Tokyo competitor.......but overall it got quite a potential to become the next iconic city..........

Bangkok is certainly a winner here...hahah....just trying to be patriotic too u knoe......

my choice:
1) HK for sure
2) Tokyo
3)Shanghai
4)Bangkok
5)Singapore

That's a sad reality about patriotism. Anyway, it's not only Filipinos but also other Southeast Asians as well. Bangkok is my favorite SEA city but here is my ranking.

1. Hong Kong
2. Shanghai
3. Kuala Lumpur
4. Bangkok
5. Singapore
6. Metro Manila & Jakarta

But I believe there more underrated Asian city skylines out there especially in China.
