Doha is definitely underrated, which looks more sophisticated and it has a lot of better quality and designed buildings than in those Chinese cities.

modern buildings: jakarta (check), singapore (double check)
landscape: jakarta (check), singapore (double check)
arrangement of buildings: jakarta (check) singapore (triple check)
well, that's your opinion you said, but giving criteria like that would make it pretty easy for an objective measure and comparison!
totally agree!if to compare to singapore(best sea skyline)..
if compare with kl also got the same result

modern building jakarta 2,kl 4,singapore 5
landscape jakarta 3,kl 4,singapore 5
arrangement jakarta 1,kl 4,singapore 5
plus+
surrounding jakarta 1,kl 3,singapore 5
total of tall building jakarta 1,kl 4,singapore 5
recognizable skyline jakarta 1,kl 5,singapore 5

here's a previous post of mine, which is also my latest list... coincidentally, manila and jakarta are on the same spot!!! lol
you are free to raise your eyebrows, but to tell you frankly, my only consideration for this list is appeal and visual impact!

the site included proposed and U/Cs in their list, however! so what you see in the list isn't what you would actually see...

but, if we include the U/Cs and proposed buildings, Jakarta will have 25 buildings over 200m height, while Kl only get 13 buildings..

@ kang rey,kang, we have to admit whether we like it or not, that jkarta's skyline is not that good compared to the big cities in East Asia or Middle East.. Ummm.. maybe it's because we don't have any supertall building with +300m height. But im not saying we should be embarrassed because we don't have both the tallest and iconic supertall in Asia, it's only a matter of time..
(*hopes for a realaization of those proposed supertalls )

People should see the truth rather than making a list based on biased opinion

Where is Doha and Dubai?

Doha is the same league as Singapore (its even better but less mentioned)
Most of it's skyscrapers are properly built in terms of quality and design.

Dubai is pretty much Doha on steroid so just curious why Doha before Dubai, because they are of pretty much the same style.

Wow Doha looks nice! More so than Dubai actually...I don't understand the idea behind the 'Tallest Block' at all, the towers there seem quite boring architecturally. SZR and the Burj Dubai on the other hand
