You can't compare the Hong Kong skyline to another Asian skylines my friend.

Hong Kong has a world class skyline that is able to compete with other great skylines of New York, Chicago, Toronto, Tokyo and Dubai etc. I personally rate Hong Kong skyline second best in the world after NYC. But it is surely the best one in the entire Asia.

The Jakarta and Guangzhou are particularly heart-stopping the latter, but such density, very beautiful

IMO,i personally dont like jakarta's skyline.nothing spectacular and in some ways,,too ordinary.guangzhou on the other hand is rising. china leads in terms of skyline in asia with hong kong and shanghai in it.just my thoughts though

Guangzhou's new skyline is a bit interesting since the axis runs perpendicular to the river rather than along it. Quite different from other riverside cities where the skyline snakes around it, like Chongqing and Shanghai.

Singapore does not want to remain behind. Special mention for Hong Kong that for my the best skyline has.

The problem is Singapore has the height limit restriction. Its skyline would have been much nicer with one or two super tall towers.

That IFC building in Guangzhou is amazing. I think it has become my favourite skyscraper in the entire world.
