HK

+ C'mon does this need an explanation
- Kowloon's skyline will emerge and might take over HK Island sometime in the future

Singapore

+ Nice panorama and clusters
- 280 height limit

Tokyo

+ Futuristic buildings and nice clusters especially in Shinjuku
- No supertalls

Bangkok

+ Height plus individual collection of skyscrapers
- Too scattered

Manila

+ Nice clusters especially in Makati in Ortigas
- Lack of supertalls plus iconic scrapers

Taipei

+ Has the world's tallest building
- Not too much of a skyline

I think Metro Manila's skyline is best viewed from Antipolo

Ortigas Centre would look nice if those twin towers right across Megamall isn't abandoned

Metro Manila has a whole lot of CBDs with some really nice skylines. BTW, I still look at Makati as downtown Metro Manila

When I first found out, Manila even had a skyline, [last year, which is actually the main reason why I joined SSC hehe... (Even thought I've been to MNL and gone through it to the airport when I migrated to the US... I never actually looked out the window...) hehehehe...] anyway, I also thought Makati was the downtown area.

Manila does have a skyline but I think it's focused on two main areas. One are the ones along Roxas Blvd. or along Manila Bay and the other is along Binondo / Escolta.

Makati is arguebly the downtown since it's the prime business district. And if you look at Makati's position, it's right at the centre of Metro Manila.

Well, yeah agreed.

It will be awesome when they build BGC and if they build more buildings between Makati and Ortigas to make an unscattered skyline.
