ahh, why do you even comment, we all know by now that you hate me and you hate Bangkok because of me.

As I said before, we all have different taste. I like massive, a sea of skyscrapers, not small centralized like Los Angeles or any other city with a small centralized skyline.

Yes, you havent been to Bangkok I can tell. There are glass everywhere and many modern as well.
Saying that Bangkok doesn't have any modern buildings is like saying ice cream doesn't melt in the sun.

Did you have to quote all the pics? And did you have to post that many?

We get it - you don't like Bangkok.

I like it. A lot. It's got a fantastic 'massive' skyline. It's also got some very intriguing structures - I wouldn't say iconic or particularly mesmerising architecturally, but they're nice and fit into Bangkok as a whole. Top 5 in Asia for me.

Bangkok might not have the best icon or top quality but it isn't bad at all a least in my opinion.

I found some nice pictures of Chongqing

OK enough with your argument SO143 and RaySthlm... there's no room for Sao Paulo vs. Bangkok here because this is Best Asian Skyline thread. I hope I don't have to explain it further... by the way, Bangkok has a lot of good-looking buildings, not to mention, height! It's actually a complete package for any skyline enthusiast..., though, my personal taste for a skyline would go for a well balanced with iconic skyscrapers like Singapore and Doha, I still find Bangkok to be one of the best!

Chinese city are so unbelievable!!!
Hong Kong, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Chongqing, Shenzen, Beijing, Tianjin, Kunming, Nanjing...
The country is definitely a HEAVEN for skyscraper addict!!!

I can't imagine how middle eastern cities can make those buildings occupied...
I mean their population (let's say Dubai, Doha, Abu Dhabi) are not even close to ten millions?!?!
And yet they keep building tens of supertall that I'm sure still left pelnty of room even if they cramped all of their people inside...

Bangkok needs more taller skyscrapers, as far as i understand almost every city in Asia do not have very serious height restriction like in European countries where tall buildings are not allowed to build due to historical sites, historic zone, airports and people's attitude towards tall buildings etc. I will put Bangkok in one of the best lists in the whole Asia when it gets good quality and taller skyscrapers like One World Trade Centre and Bank of America in New York, The Shard in London, Trump International Tower in Chicago, Shanghai World Financial Centre in Shanghai, Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur, International Commerce Centre and International Finance Centre in Hong Kong etc But now it needs a lot of work for architecture, quality of materials, glasses, height, design and iconic etc.

This building is 2nd tallest in the whole Thailand


This building is 3rd tallest in the whole Thailand

Bangkok have many good quality skyscrapers, enough said.
That building that you posted is the most expensive building in south east asia (you could have got a better pic of it though) and why didn't you mention Bangkoks tallest building Baiyoke 2 (304 m). River tower A which is 265 meters tall will soon be the second tallest in Bangkok this year .

Here are some sample of new skyscrapers which will be completed soon or in the near future.

I don't wanna spam with many pics again so you just better go check out this link of all skyscraper projects in Bangkok, they are many so take your time SOI143, but to be honest, what is the point, you hate me and Bangkok anyway so you will just say that Bangkok suck and post some of the crappiest projects going on there, anyway enjoy:

http://www.skyscrapercity.com/forumd...329&order=desc

Also, if you have time, I want you too look at these photos, which shows the high quality of Bangkok condos, so don't come and say Bangkok buildings have poor standards and are unmodern:
