IMO Hong Kong is not only the best asian skyline but also the best world's skyline.

I agree with you. Next to the huge number of highrises it's for a large part the natural setting. The curve of the harbour, the mountains that make it what it is. Other cities like Shanghai and Dubai migh have more iconic skyscrapers these days but the combination is less imposing.

As I said before though. From a higher viewpoint Shanghai is just amazing. I went up to this bar at the Hyatt at the Bund and the view of both sides was.

Heyhey, it seems God prefers Hong Kong! Yeah, Hong Kong has a very beautiful natural setting. Just envy U guys there! Besides, I have to say HK's skyscrapers are very classy with high quality.I personally think HK is the most beautiful skyscraper city in the world.

It's getting more dense. The good aspect of the "American city" is the skyline. The bad part is that the city revolves around cars, gated communities and malls.

Wow you pretty much summed up Makati. But in a real American city, those so called malls are strip malls, which are not indoors and are predominantly parking lots.

Totally. Those New Yorkers and Chicagoans and Philadelphians just live in their cars!

Sorry, but the comment was just unnecessary IMO, basically saying "The only good part of American cities are their skylines"

That's your interpretation. I meant the average city with a dense CBD, malls, suburbs, highways etc.

IMO:
1. Hong Kong
2. Dubai
3. Shanghai
4. Kuala Lumpur
5. Guangzhou
6. Shenzhen
7. Singapore
8. Kuwait City
9. Tokyo
10. Bangkok
11. Beijing
12. Mumbai
13. Riyadh
14. Jakarta
15. Kaosiung
I think Makati could be in that list soon, but I want to see what it will look like once the Gramercy Residences are completed.
Hanoi is a real up and comer, but it just isn't "there" yet.
I also have never cared for Seoul's skyline. It just seems dry to me. I can't explain it, but it just doesn't appeal to me.

I like both the right and left parts of the picture, really neat.
But they don't seem to be harmonious together.
Edit: I found out why, it is just because I don't like distributions with multiple modes

I know this list is base on your opinion, but can you at least tell me the reason why you put Kuwait City and Riyadh on your list? I google for Kuwait City and Riyadh skyline pics and they don't look that impressive.

some of the the buildings here are u/c which might make them look a bit strange...
