1. HK (density, lights, character)
2. SG (order)
3. Shanghai (defines the word vastness)
4. Tokyo (Character)
5. BKK (love the contrast)
6. KL (with the Petronas... legendary) plus pts. for KL for being the first (i believe) Asian city to challenge the west in building skyscrapers
7. MNL (you'll see all the extremes)

IMO.(I look for all the area not only the downtown! )I love a huge city , huge of metropolitan ,big area ,big city i mean lot of High buildings! in S.E.A i prefer BANGKOK no.1 coz Bangkok is biggger area and more high building than other S.E.A countries
for CBD I love SG and KL look so beautiful...
MNL and JKT..if delete some SLUM area will be better coz look not so beautiful from the sky.sorry for that but your city is amazing too!
For east ASIA... TOKYO is NO.1 and Hongkong is almost No1 just becoz of CHINA has alot of big cities and some well-known cities (Shanghai, Macau etc...) so i picked it only one from them.
anyway have we used to discuss about DUBAI, DOHA? or some midle eastern countries? they 've got a skyline too!

that's exactly what I mean about Manila being a city of extremes, here you'll find the richest and the poorest, the cleanest and the dirtiest, the well organized and chaotic, old and new. I'm not proud of Manila being dirty, poor, and choatic in some areas, but somehow I enjoyed seeing it, it only proves how honest Manila is, she shows to everyone who she really is, she doesn't pretend to be perfect, and I just find her very beautiful being like that.

The main reason why we don't talk much about its becasue this thread is pretty much hijacked by SEA cities and Chinese cities.

Here is one we don't talk much about is very similar to Tokyo but smaller =]
Osaka, Japan
by TOSHI @ Osakanight.com scroll------>


I think we also forgot about South Asia
Mumbai, India
from the banner couple days ago

I have Dubai just outside my top 10 Asian skylines, but do have Kuwait City at #8. It's a smaller skyline than Dubai, but still give it a slight edge.

Kudos to Bangkok they're one of the best in SEA and Asia. But let West Asian skylines shine for the moment. They haven't been getting many pictures.

Interesting list...there's quite a few cities I've not heard of before..would have been interesting to see skyline pics of these lesser known cities.
