can someone stop posting pics of Asean cities.already too many of it.

its look like ppl keep posting and praise their own city.

best skyline is where the tall buildings are sprawling and spreading entire city - like China cities

not just a few spots of CBDs here and there and between it - a houses/slum area.

You just put yourself in trouble.
Are you a MOD?
If all of the pictures here were all your admired china cities
Will you also stop them from posting?
Your such a whiner!

No, i think the thread should be changed to 'The best of Asian Cities' since many Asian countries have very nice skylines, which are not comparable between each other. Having said that, i am enjoying the constant update of pics from the same nation. I don't mind if there are too many pics of the same skyline, as long as it looks good, it deserves to be in this thread!!!!!!!!!!!

And No, Chinese cities are not the only ones with good skylines, KL, SIN, Tokyo and many more all have their share of Best skyline characteristics

Oh btw, this is what i meant by a low quality photo. This photo has all its characters, small size, taken on a day with horrible weather, dull in color, lame angle and composition.




while i would call this a high quality photo

THE EMERGING GLOBAL CITY OF EAST ASIA
Tokyo, Hong Kong, Shanghai and Seoul are already economic powerhouse of Asia Pacific.
Secondary urban powerhouse includes Beijing, Shenzhen, Osaka and Busan.
Singapore is fast becoming the global city for the region, whereas Taipei, Bangkok and Kuala Lumpur are aspirant candidates for the next decade.

I don't feel that way. They just need more density in Manila. The city is never-ending already with pockets of skylines all over the place. Id they build it up in overall terms it will be brilliant already. Places like KL and Taipe have one major skyscraper with little around it. They look tiny compared to Manila.

Asia is definitely the number 1 continent with the best skylines in the face of the Earth. Talk about Hongkong, Shanghai, Dubai, Tokyo (density), Seoul, Kuala Lumpur, Metro Manila, Bangkok, Jakarta, and the dozens of Chinese cities that can match the skylines of North & South America.

IMO HK tops....followed by a few Chinese cities notably Shanghai first & Singapore which are all just as good. Dubai..I love Burj Kalifa but apart from a handful of nice buildings the overall skyline doesn't match HK, Shanghai or Singapore for that matter.
