Sorry but i still dont think Bangkok has a large skyline. From the set of pictures you have just posted i find it hard to believe there are over 2000 150m-250m buildings.

I have just checked Skyscraperpage, there are 12 towers over 200m, the rest are about 80m-150m. From the pictures it just gives me the feeling that Bangkok's skyline is filled with scattered residential blocks with no real iconic tower that really stands out.

Yeah, Bangkok has a small skyline like Shanghai. 2000 hmm maybe that is too much, make it between 1000-2000 (I guess). Did you check emporis? They have't added all buildings, many many missing. Anyway, Bangkok sucks.

if we are talking about ALL highrises (90meters to 300+ meters), i think 2000 is correct. basing on the pictures, bangkok really has a big number of tall buildings.

Bangkok skyline might not be as impressive as the big boys, but has its own charm nonetheless.

I think that is a matter of opinion. Asia is so big and there are sooo many cities that are unique in their own way. In my opinion Bangkok, Metro Manila, and even cities like Tokyo and Seoul could win in a city-vs.-city battle with Shanghai, HK, and Dubai (definitely). They might not be as tall or large, but they have great skylines. Besides there are other Chinese cities, Chongqing, Guangzhou, and Shenzhen that I think hold up well against Shanghai and HK; meaning they're not that hard to beat, well at least not to me.

I guess we could categorize cities in Asia based on their size, height, and recognition.
Tier-1 (tall and expansive, immediately recognized): Shanghai, HK, Dubai
Tier-2 (expansive, sea of high/mid-rise): Tokyo, Seoul, Taipei (??), Osaka, Fukuoka (??), etc.
Tier-3 (centralized and/or multiple skylines): Metro Manila, Bangkok, Jakarta, Singapore, Busan, Mumbai (??), Kuala Lumpur...

Then there are the cities that can't be immediately recognized, or recognized at all, by people from around the world yet are massive and growing taller. They are Shenzhen, Guangzhou, Chongqing, etc....Mostly Chinese cities. And of course cities I have a hard time putting into one of the three tiers: Singapore, Hanoi, Saigon, and a lot of Indian cities.

yup, Singapore, Bangkok and Manila (in no order) have better skylines. KL is too small, they have the tallest with petronas tower but the rest is nothing remarable.
