Manila is a lot better than KL when it comes to this, it is beautifully clustered, well balanced with just enough density.

you should go to manila and see the amazing mountainscape, seascape and whatever scape you'd like to see... what's so great about KL's landscape by the way? Manila's got everything that KL's landscape is boasting of, plus a lot more...

Manila has a lot of tall buildings.. it doesn't have a supertall, ok, but it doesn't blow up anything... do you also mean that San Francisco, Doha, Panama, Miami are failures? you should go out from your country and see how beautiful shorter skylines are than your KL.

1pt for KL... without your iconic landmark i don't know where else would KL be given the fact that neighboring skylines are already a lot better even without the "icon"... no wonder you are obsessed of building more icons... dubai-in-the-making with only showing-off in mind...

KL's focus point is limited to the area around Petronas... talking about boring... did you ever realize that? almost every piece of photo of KL you see badly needs and did not fail to show the Petronas or else you'd mistaken it for a mass housing project... even Jakarta is a lot better in this category... did you see the same trend in Tokyo, New York, Hong Kong? and you're saying that KL belongs to them? c'mon... Manila's multiple CBDs are by far greater focus points giving you variety, let alone beauty...

get real dude... comparing Manila/Bangkok to KL??? you must have lost your senses... now wait till the thais tell you why KL isn't in the same league with Bangkok... I can tell you myself why, but I'll leave it to them...
don't get me wrong, KL is such a nice and modern city, but you're pushing it over to the edge and you can only try so hard to show-off and put others down but it's only getting you nowhere...

Boring, this sort of best discussion is so simple.

Title says Best Asian Skyline, not skylines. So this title belongs to Hong Kong only.

the good thing about the "best" is that it can always be contested... coz' we might as well just make this a Hong Kong skyline thread... anyway, I believe that in some aspects, Singapore could be the best, though i know that majority would give it to Hong Kong...

The best skyline, not the best skyscraper or city. Singapore is just only a piece of cake compare to the giant Hong Kong. Other cities in Asia are also coping really well with mass amount of modern and quality skyscrapers for example Dubai and Doha. Though South East Asian cities do not have many identical and recognizable skyscrapers, they still possess well-balanced and good-looking skylines (especially from away) in their own ways for example Manila, Bangkok etc. So, as far as i understand the best thing to win this sort of best skyline contest is that we should class skylines into different categories in order to get them fair criticism and judgement.

talking about character and visual impact of a skyline:
1. Singapore
2. Hong Kong
3. Shanghai
4. Doha

Overall considering height, length, density, character:
1. Hong Kong- hands down
2. Singapore
3. Shanghai
4. Tokyo
5. Dubai
6. Doha

Sorry but i can not see any ways you can justify the word "massive" on Jakarta
