btw i didn't mentioned even once that Thailand is a developed country...as said...let's chill
Let's move on.... sawadeekrup. Every citizen whether Thai or Pinoy aims for a better country and the ultimate dream of being classified as Developed Country or the so called First World just like our fellow ASEAN country - Singapore.

from what i read/heard

1. the height restriction isnt because of changi but paya lebar air base
2. they are easing on the 280m cap (there will be a 280+ meter building at marina bay and i think somewhere in jurong)

In the first Jakarta pic, I honestly thought it was Makati.

^ Same here. I've said before that Manila/Makati and Jakarta has a similarity in terms of skyline. Only Jakarta has more modern looking buildings (just basing on the pics). Most Makati buildings are already old. Newer buildings are in Ortigas and Fort Bonifacio.

Without any bias Dubai and Shanghai tops my list and perhaps in second place will be HK. For 3rd is a pick between Singapore, KL, Jakarta, and Manila

Records can be chaotic. There's been a debate on which ASEAN city is bigger whether its Jakarta or Manila.

Some stats state Manila is bigger than Jakarta. Emporis is one example. Manila's metro area is huge and it stretches beyond the M.M. area

As for Singapore, it's more a city-state than a country.

South East Asia is not just the most comptitive not just people but skyline. Its more the whole Asian region. SEA is just one of them. In China alone cities construct more skyscrapers and supertalls. Even minor cities in The Mainland get its share like Wuhan for example.

There's also in India and in The Middle East. Its not just Dubai but also Kuwait, Doha and more.
