Shamelessly plugging my latest photo.

Please check out the high res. Hong Kong is so massive that even the Stonecutters bridge looks tiny.

Super high res.

Tokio is amazing. The city that never ends. Bough this "Tokyo twilight from the air" Blue Ray last week. Fantastic!

I have been in doha this year and it is certainly not one of the great
skylines in asia. there are just some towers standing in the sand,
pretty boring and no life at all.

Great to see all the skyline pictures. Asia is an amazing continent full of skyscrapers. Many cities have built enormous skylines while more are building like there is no tomorrow.

Regarding the best, I think Hong Kong easily takes the title now(without much dispute I hope), but a lot of cities are catching up, so it is also great to see what will happen in a few years or decades.

Personally I enjoyed following the update of the supertall boom in Chinese cities. There might be bubbles, but there is also the need. I think Shanghai and Shenzhen already have quite impressive skylines. Out of the many mega cities with potentially great skylines (Guangzhou, Tianjin, Chongqing etc), Guangzhou has been doing the best job to build quite some supertalls (and many more skyscrapers as other cities do) in a well planned way so far. I can't wait to see what Guangzhou's skyline would look like after this phase of its suptertall construction is completed, I am pretty sure it will be impressive, but I am looking forward to being surprised. Seems the construction is somehow affected by the Asian Games preparation this year, but it won't take long to get in shape. Also there are many big cities engaged in this skyscraper boom as well. Their skyline may not have the appalling sheer size, but good planning still makes some of them truly exceptional. For example, I love the skyline of one CBD area in the city of Ningbo:



It is neither huge nor super tall, but I think it is one of the best designed CBD areas in China. So I hope some of those cities will eventually have first-rate skylines in the future.

I am also interested in seeing supertall boom outside China. Mumbai is building supertalls, and imagine what it would look like once the DB tower gets built. Vietnamese cities are also building and planning more supertalls. I like the Saigon banner the other day, although it needs a lot more skyscrapers. Hopefully we could see more impressive skylines in Asia later.

I like Hong Kong for super talls. Singapore's skyline gives a feel of balance. I am stunned to see ningbo. Beautiful! I loved it!
