Absolutely.

But I don't see how GDP per capita contributes to proving that the skyline is the best.

No problem mate.

As long as they're good quality pictures of the skyline - unlike some of the plonkers on here posting shit pictures of South East Asian cities.

Wow, don't be.

I'm honored to see pics of Tokyo, the city ranked number 1 for my places to visit.

Well, since you put it that way, I'm gonna assume that Makati has the highest GDP in that list.

Makati has the highest GDP thanks to the Makati skyline.

To non Filipinos or those not familiar to Manila, who wouldn't know Makati or Mandaluyong or Quezon City. They look at all these skylines as Manila.

Manila's skyline can rival that of Tokyo with the exception of the Tokyo Tower. Tokyo's building have the same level of height as Manila's. The majority of Tokyo's buildings aren't really that tall.
