HK doesn't need the world's tallest building to create the greatest Asian skyline

One tall building, no matter how tall, cannot make a great skyline on its own.

We hear a lot about Dubai in this forum, but how many people actually have been there to see all the construction? If anyone has been there, please offer some insight on what that experience was!

seems no one interested in shenzhen? shenzhen has really impressive skyline, and a really developed chinese city. i think shenzhen can be top 5 in asia.
as for dubai, it's only 1.5 million population, so i am not sure it can be top 5 city in future in asia

We're talking about skylines. Shenzhen may be developed but there are other Asian cities that boast a better skyline.

Shenzhen has a nice skyline, and the interesting part of it is it is very linear and spread out from east-west. Even though the main downtown area is Futian, the first skyscrapers came up in Lo Wu near the Hong Kong rail crossing.

Shenzhen's skyline is as linear as Chicago

No. Shenzhen is far more spread out. Chicago's skyline is quite well defined in the downtown core (Loop), but Shenzhen is not. The downtown being constructed from scratch did not encompass the original skyscrapers such as Shun Hing or that Shangri-La right outside the rail station.

Shenzhen's skyline is more spread out than Chicago but it still linear.

Please re-read my previous post in its entirety :

Shenzhen has a nice skyline, and the interesting part of it is it is very linear and spread out from east-west. Even though the main downtown area is Futian, the first skyscrapers came up in Lo Wu near the Hong Kong rail crossing.

That is clearly not the case in Chicago. Please do not analyze piecemeal. The whole blurb is meant to be interpreted together.

Though Bangkok has an impressive skyline, again, it's scattered.
