Are we really discussing? I think everyone agrees that HK has the best skyline in Asia...

It's become more of a "look how big my coc- I mean city's skyline - is" thread

No.

I'm putting up the occasional Hong Kong skyline picture, well supplemented by brilliant pictures of Singapore, Tokyo and Shanghai posted by others, whilst the SEAsians are busy spamming the place with their substandard pictures of not so impressive skylines.

What makes the best skyline is subjective. In my opinion many of the largest skylines in Asia are quite ugly and I prefer other qualities such as distinctive clusters and lack of 'cloned' towers for example. Still, nothing comes close to HK's skyline imo.

Just seen that KL has quite a few high rise and skyscraper projects coming up. Should look great in a few years time!

It's the Potala Palace, where the Buddisht monks live.

And yes, it is very impressive.
