IMO Guangzhou & Shanghai are the only 2 cities which come close to HK. The rest are kidding themselves.

I agree but not now only in the future. Dubai will probably take over Hong Kong when the majority of its projects are completed.

Yes but China also has a population that's

234 times larger than Singapore
50 times larger than Malaysia
20 times larger than Thailand
15 times larger than Philippines
9 times larger than Indonesia

And all these nations combined ( 416,933,639 ), China is still 3 times larger. (1,324,655,000 )

[Now adding E. Asia]

10 times larger than Japan
27 times larger than S. Korea

593,244,639

...2.2 times larger [in population] than 7 of the nations in this skyscraper race.

dubai needs to build about 7,000 highrises to catch up with HK....

dubai still lacks in

- urbanity
- diversity
- density
- balanced skyline
- backdrop
- ...

it has a long way to go if you ask me...

IMO it's not always about height and density. Best Skyline can be in many ways. =)

That ofcourse China would have the needs and power to build all those buildings

Thailand doesn't even have 10 cities.
