Beauty is in the eye of beholder, as far as skyscrapers issue goes, you can class it based on over all quality, quantity, design, glass, height, shape etc.

I have noticed that Dubai and Doha are always underrated when it comes to top 10 best Asian skylines, though Doha's quality skylines is bigger than Singapore's CBD. Dubai should be ranked not only in Asian's top 10 also in world's top 10 list. It has something that human has ever seen.

Doha has some nice towers but it is rather small, Dubai is a lot better if you compare those 2.

A skyline which has over 2000 skyscrapers is more impressive than one city with 6 skyscrapers. Sao Paolo is an exception, which is filled with european looking commieblock buildings all over.

i admit that Dohas skyline is taller than Singapores skyline, but, is she bigger? no, i dont think so

Yes that is true, but in there it exists a general consensus of different classes of skyline. The standards for these classes could be easily set based on "quality, quantity, design, glass, height, shape". People do have a common perception as to the elements of beauty. It is perfectly normal for individuals to rank skylines differently within each class.

Therefore it follows if someone ranks, for example Jakarta (just a random pick, not implying anything) skyline over New York, he or she must either be making the decision on a irrational base, considering factors other than purely the aesthetic of skylines or have extreme view as to the common perception.

APPEAL DISMISSED!

Dubai Skyline is still in progress, be patient and wait a few more years or at least a decade. All those skyscrapers in Dubai are just recently built unlike New York or Hong Kong.

That's called a 'charm' of the Middle East in this decade....who thinks that one day there will be an oasis of the skyline in the middle of the desert..just like the pearl of the orient sea
