Bangkok is my favourite by far. The Sukhumvit skyline is massive.

Doha was certainly very surprising. They've got a new skyscraper district with plenty of innovative and unique designs. The best part was it was along the flight path out of the airport so if takeoff is towards the north, grab a left window seat!

I look at photos like this one and think Dubai has a really awesome skyline:

Yet I really think the skyline of the Dubai Marina area is soo ugly.
image hosted on flickr

It's just a bunch of supertalls with boring designs (variations on a rectangle anybody?), standing on square plots that are too small, therefore the towers are too close together. (with the exception of that twisting tower which is cool in design and has some SPACE around it)

That's how I feel too - except I'm not even a fan of the first pic. But I've seen some fantastic pics of Dubai here and there - but they're scarce.

There's no cohesion between the skylines. (Most of) the buildings aren't good enough on their own to stand out. But they don't form a Bangkok/Shanghai/Hong Kong style cohesion either.

Weird skyline.

I think its because the shape of individual buildings are too diverse, so when you put them together in a whole the skyline looks "unharmonious" as a Chinese official would say. And the second thing i feel, is spire, spire on top of buildings can make a skyline otherwise perfect a mess.

Dubai:
1. They built all their towers along one street at similar heights, doesn't give it that layered effect.
2. A lot of their residentials look really nice, much better than the ones in mainland China (very repetitive) or Hong Kong. Unfortunately, they are all bunched up together, at yet again, similar heights. The good residentials are being surrounded by three or four other nice residential towers, its a complete waste. Im sure that if they gave the residential towers the 'Pudong' effect (spaced out and with greenery around them), the outcome will be a lot better and more visually appealing.

Busan in South Korea will be one of greatest skylines in Asia near future.

Because Busan has already around 18 buidings over 200m(Completed or T/O), not to mention 6 supertalls(U/C or approved already)
