Sukhumvit skyline in Bangkok from far away distance,it doesn't include the main business district areas like Silom/sathorn and chidlom/ratchadamri areas, which has the tallest buildings.

Thanks for the night pics of BKK. I wish the pics were taken using an SLR camera for much greater clarity though. I'm going to invest in an SLR for my next trip to Thailand in '12.

i hope you guys start respecting each other's opinions... it's really difficult to measure "BEST" even if there's strict criteria to observe, in the end, the "BEST" skyline still depends in our personal taste... and here is mine:

1. Singapore
2. HK
3. Shanghai
4. Doha
5. Manila
6. Tokyo
7. Jakarta
8. Bangkok
9. Kuala Lumpur
10. Dubai

I have a different list of favorite skylines since I tried to write this one as objective as can be, but personal biases are inevitable...

is this a thread about Bangkok Skyline or what?

the best is always TOKYO. best on street level, and even best at 'sky level'….

many cities in asian are only looking good on sky level…but a disaster on its street level…..

As it says "best skyline in asia" I think we are talking about skylines here, not street level . If comparing street level, then Tokyo ofcourse, which is 20 years ahead of any european city. If we talk about skyline, ofcourse Tokyo is not the best .

You also said that many asian cities only look good in sky level but not street level, well, most cities in europe for example looks horrible in sky level but only good in street level, so it kinds of equal out there, doesn't it? .

please do refrain from posting malicious ethnocentric remarks in this forum and strictly refer to the thread title before bringing about any topic that would most certainly end up in non-related CvC discussions...

RaySthlm, you get too defensive over people's opinions. You can't say "of course Tokyo is not the best", because people can have any opinion they want.

This is my top 10 list
1. Hong Kong
2. Shanghai
3. Tokyo
4. Singapore
5. Seoul
6. Bangkok
7. Manila
8. Jakarta
9. Osaka
10. Shenzen

I agree with that, I actually like the skyscraper they built next to it more:
