Although I love Taipei, I would need to admit, that the most breathtaking skyline in Asia is found in Hong Kong. Probably only New York can match up with that breathtaking nightly festival of lights.

To be honest, just from an aesthetic standpoint, I think Singapore trumps them both. Obviously it doesn't compare with HK in regards to volume of high rises (and certainly not even close to Shanghai) but in terms of overall balance, I think Singapore has a slight edge.

I definitely think Singapore has one of the worlds best skylines. While i completely feel Singapores skyline is better than Shanghai's, Hong Kongs has great quality in many portions of the skyline and good balance as well as an impressive landscape. IMO:

1.Hong Kong
2.Singapore
3.Shanghai

aI think Kuala Lumpur's skyline only looks nice because of the Petronas Twin Towers. The rest of it doesnt seem to fall into place to make a iconic skyline.

Here is top 10 for me:

1. Singapore
2. HK
3. Shanghai
4. Dubai
5. KL
6. Chongqing
7. Bangkok
8. Doha
9. Manilla
10. Kuwait

Obviously Tokyo has tons of tall buildings as well but I think it is in a class of its own. Cannot really compare with other cities since it doesn't seem to have one definitive focal point in terms of high rises like all these other cities.
