Jakarta skyline is nice of course. But in this context we talk about the best in Asia, don't we?? And it's obvious that we definitely not part of it...
IMO jakarta deserved to be part of the best skyline in asia..

i think we lack both professional photographers and dense skyline. And please, i feel so stupid now asking "can we put Jakarta as one of the best skyline in Asia" without paying careful attention to the real best skylines such as Hongkong, Shanghai, Tokyo, Shenzhen, Chongqing, Singapore, Guangzhou, Beijing, Nanjing and Tianjin

@unity sorry gan, maklumin aja ane nubie, baru paham sekarang kalau di forum ini salah langkah dikit bisa dimakan ma trollers forum. hehehe

That's ok... It's not wrong trying to introduce what we have to the world...
Anyway we still have a lot of threads here that surely will fit Jakarta's skyline photo. Try the international forum or Asian forum about sharing pics from your country/city... And just let people judge by themselves...

No need to talk about this anymore..Just back to the topic...

Anyway, I think Jakarta is better than Beijing, Beijing is nothing special, it has some unique looking buildings and a nice stadium but that's about it.

exactly, not much of a skyline there, but I like that tall building and the unique looking one. I also think that Jakarta is better than Tianjin as well, which has a weak skyline as Beijing.

not really weak... it's one of the rather flat skylines out there but definitely it's one of the more recognizable ones! thanks to the few architecturally strong tall buildings!

Tianjin is booming like crazy these days especially Binhai.

Beijing still lags behind in terms of skyline but Beijing got some of the best architectures its are very unique if you compare it to other skylines.

Tianjin and Beijing are quite formidable in the future but it probably won't be able to compete with the southern cities in China.

Tianjin's skyline is quite big I won't say its small at all

Beijing has a height restriction. To put Beijing and Tianjin together in terms of skyscrapers is unwise.

Tianjin is already fine. to those who thinks it only has an so so skyline, it will knock his socks off in a few years.

skylines in western Asian tend to be less mentioned, but they do have some great skylines over there like Doha. I think we need more forumers from that areas to post some more pictures.

Beijing may not have many great or tall buildings, but it's got a Singapore thing going on there. Massively bad call. It's a fantastic skyline, if somewhat slightly understated.

glad that people are starting to appreciate the beauty of doha...
it's really one of the most attractive and well balanced skyline out there!

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...
looking back, i had just placed doha 4th in my list...

at present i think i have to update my list to:
1. Singapore
2. HK
3. Shanghai
4. Doha
5. Tokyo
6. Manila/Jakarta
7. Bangkok/Seoul
8. Beijing
9. Kuala Lumpur
10. Dubai

Bangkok skyline is absolutely overrated, it ain't even got quality, modern, and iconic skyscrapers. Most of it's high rises are like residential condos, hardly see clean glass skyscrapers there.

i don't think so. though bangkok isn't a personal favorite, i think it has a lot of good-looking skyscrapers. but hey, that's your opinion so you're entitled to it...
