Doha skyline has great architectures but in my opinion it has a lacks density feeling or it has very wide gaps between the buildings.

Doha skyline is still growing very rapidly and a lot of quality skyscrapers are U/C.
I am sure in the next 4 to 5 years, we will see a huge change in Doha.
But at the moment, most people don't notice that iconic skyscrapers in Doha are booming every year.

i've seen that page many times! but that's not what i was talking about, read my posts carefully and the post i am replying to so you'd get what i mean. you just can't make an inference based on how you'd like to see and understand things coz that's not how it works!
i'm so done with you, we're not on the same frequency!

that's why it's hard to gauge the best skyline using that diagram because it doesn't show the actual skyline. you don't judge a skyline by the number of proposed buildings but from how it actually looks... besides, that diagram is not even updated...

Most of it's skyscrapers are properly built in terms of quality and design.

I don't like either, to be honest. There are some angles from which Dubai seems fantastic, but generally speaking it's a bit bland for me.

Doha on the other hand, is very much a Singapore like skyline. It's buildings individually and collectively are fantastic. What it seems to lack is Singapore's class - at least, based on the pictures above.

Doha's colour scheme is horrid!

@ 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 )

i totally agree with you, is about scenery how to look the skyline over all, not only how big we have the tallest building or how density of the city we have, and with the beautiful building i think jakarta on the hight average, we don't care what their opinion, couse some of them never come here to see by their eyes , and the show must go on

Doha is much better than Dubai. It looks like people put effort into designing Doha's, while most, not all of Dubai's buildings seem bland and tacky.

I like Dubai better. Doha is good but not that big or massive. Dubai has height and more skyscrapers + it has the tallest one in the world.

Anyway, top 3 Asian skylines:

1) Hong Kong
2) Singapore
3) Shanghai

Apart from buildings and geography, I think what really makes a skyline great is how iconic and how much impact it has on the world's view of the city.

And in that respect Hong Kong will be the champion for a long time - there is a kind of excitement/ energy which sets it miles apart, even from the second best.
