I like Hong Kong's natural setting, the mountains make it look really nice. The night view of Hong Kong is #1 for me, other then that I don't really like the buildings in HK except for a few of the glassy ones.

I actually think the concentrated buildings in Shanghai is the best skyline in China by quality, but overall HK is #1 in China (and Asia).

When you are looking at a skyline any structure has an impact on it, it doesn't matter if it's a skyscraper or not. Tokyo Tower and now especially Sky Tree have a big impact.

For me (which means it's my opinion so don't take it seriously anybody ) Tokyo is solidly #3

#1 Hong Kong
#2 Shanghai
#3 Tokyo
#4 Seoul
#5 Singapore

That Marina Bay area is just world-class, through and through. Not a single substandard or tacky structure in sight. Even the pedestrian bridge like the Helix Bridge is top notch. This is why I rate Singapore number 1 in Asia.

Singapore is indeed getting better but the top 3 are still pretty much dominate by Hong Kong, Shanghai, and Tokyo.
