c'mon! as if what you keep on posting is any better! oh well, i forgot, you're boasting of a great twin towers and an observation tower too, and you've got dozens more of proposed supertalls so that's everything to see while others are just pieces of sh*t right???

but maybe you're forgetting this is an international thread... Besides, what's "BEST" is highly subjective, let alone every forumer's own and personal bias so if you can't tolerate any of the posts here, then this thread is not for you!

P.S.
don't forget more people gave your city that very same comment (in different international threads) that you just gave manila...

epic fail, man! of all the people here i'm very surprised and find it hard to believe such comment would come out from you. you yourself together with some others here post relentlessly of your KL skyline like it's among the best in the world.

I am not surprised, he said the same thing to me when I posted pics of Bangkok. He said that: "Bangkok is boring, please stop posting pics of boring Bangkok, it doesn't have iconic buildings like petronas tower, it is not a famous top class skyline like Kuala Lumpur, NYC, Hong Kong". Well, I think both Bangkok and Manila have the best skylines in South east asia togheter with Singapore. I mean look at KL, if you take out Petronas Tower, it really looks boring and crappy.

i don't really think it's appropriate to take the petronas out of the picture. but even if you look at KL's skyline with the petronas, it's still nothing compared to Singapore, Manila, Jakarta and Bangkok, the overall impact and beauty of these skylines are lightyears ahead...

a good comparison to this is Dubai. like you can't force everybody to like it just because it has the Burj Khalifa. Height is a good thing to have, but that's not everything!

I am from Europe so I am not in danger to be biased ! I have been in Bangkok, Manila, KL and Singapore. Bangkok is the most exciting city of them and has got more handsome buildings than Manila. Manila got its scrapers more concentrated (like Makati) than BKK. Singapur left me disappointed. it has nice buildings centred in a good location but it doesn`t appeal to me. KL got the best skyline for me. It has the Petronas Towers and it is just silly to imagine how its skyline would look like without them.
1. KL
2. BKK
3. Singapur, Manila

one picture from Bangkok will explain why Bangkok is a lot better than KL

i can only speak for manila though

building arrangement=failed
if you get yourself to google earth you'd be surprised to find out that makati has a better sense of area planning and zoning of high rises and stuff. klcc on the other hand seems in disarray.

background landscape=failed
hmmm i'm not so inclined to give much weight on the natural setting of the city -- not fair for dubai

tall building=failed
again, height isn't everything. i put singapore in the same league with Hong Kong, New York, Shanghai even without a single supertall.

iconic landmark=failed
there's no denying KL wins here big time with petronas twin towers but, alas, it is easily offset by the lack of glassy and corporate-looking buildings next to the twin towers.

focus point=failed
ok, no argument here. i won't contest that KL has a more stressed focal point than manila. but what i like about manila is that it has multiple cbds each can stand on its own as a skyline. KL only has the city center and other clusters nearby are insignificant to form another distinctive skyline -- Mt Kiara doesn't make the cut everything you see there is residential.

anyways, to each his own! I honestly like KL too.
