Ok guys, remember this is not a city vs city thread, you can discuss whatever you want regarding to the cities skyline, but please don't fight over which city is more beautiful or classier than the others. Thanks!

Welcome back, Kitty!

Yes, Khun RaySthlm can you keep your post down a little bit, before BKK rarely get posted, maybe once a week, but now it seems like every hour 55

เราไม่ต้องโชร์อะไรขนาดนั้นก็ได้นะครับ ดูอะไรหมั่นๆมันทําไห้คนอื่นเบื่อ ของดีมันต้องนานๆทีมา
หย่าไปสนไจอะไรมากกับคนคนนั้นเลย ไม่หยากไห้มีดราม่า รู้หยู่ว่าเค้าชอบเเต่ประเทศที่รวยๆ ของประเทศอื่นจะดีขนาดไหนก็ไม่สนเพราะ "จน"

I have seen too much Bangkok, and too much KL vs Bangkok vs Manila on this thread. Isn't this for BEST Asian Skyline, like SINGULAR? Those cities would be good arguments for where they place in the top 10 (or IF they do) but seriously, they don't stand up to Hong Kong, or Shanghai or.... has anybody on this board even heard of Shenzhen and Guangzhou? Those are HUGE skylines with multiple supertalls and tend to be ignored. In the next couple of years I think Chinese cities are going to completely dominate this conversation. The only other city that will really compete is Dubai if it ever actually fills in and looks like a real city (it will look like Coruscant).

Seriously, way too much bickering over 2nd tier Asian skylines. Create a new thread and take it there if you are that serious about it.

We all have seen ridiculous amount of Bangkok pictures on this thread, in fact they are not even relevant to what the title of this thread literally says. And i completely agree with DZH22 saying that only Chinese cities will dominate "Best Asian Skylines" title. (it has already happened). As we all know, the only real competitor is Dubai where supertalls and quality skyscrapers are booming. On the other hand, it would be nicer to discuss in this kind of discussion thread if some posters are able to avoid bashing, and attacking personal thing.

Back on topic, the massive and tallest skylines don't necessary mean the better skylines. For example, I would pick Houston over NYC any time because imo NY skyline is rather messy and ill planned while Houston skyline seems to be more balance and in harmony.

I think it is all thanks to you. Even you tell me to post more Bangkok buildings so you can judge, remember that? Also your ignorant/false statements make me post Bangkok pics. Like Bangkoks skyscrapers have same quality as Sao Paolo . You said it doesnt have one single modern skyscraper when most skyscrapers in Bangkok are build between 1994-2011. Sao Paolos highrises were build in the 40s-70s (by the looks).

Ofcourse HK and Shanghai are the best, no doubt about it, maybe that is why we don't talk about them that much because the competition is over.

The rest is an open story. Do you like massive skyline (which I do), or do you like small but beautiful skylines, or do you like many supertalls in the desert? Many choices to pick.

I don't like HK skyline that much to be honest, the same reason that I don't find NYC skyline that attractive. Again, its totally my personal choice and I fully respect the other people who pick HK as their number one selection.

haha, to be honest I think HK is kinda boring to look at as well, kinda sick of it somehow. It is a very good, top of the line skyline but I think I've seen it too much on television, movies, documentaries, posters etc. NYC is amazing as well but as I said, seen it too much. Still they are on my top 3, how funny .

Come on guys, is this some sort of a fight? Get back to the topic and more pictures please.

Best Asian Skyline is merely a thread to post Asian skyline pictures from how I see it, so please keep discussions/comparisons with skylines outside of Asia outside of this thread!!!!!

Where are the new pics from Guangzhou or Shenzhen, Add in Korea and Japan as well

Dubai as a very interesting looking skyline and layout. Very cutting edge looking but has a very unnatural feel as well. Nonetheless, very nice.

I like the cities which have green landscape such as Chiang Mai, Pakkred, Hatyai, or Pattaya. The main idea of this thread is 'best Asian skyline' not 'best Asian skyscraper skyline'. I agree with Yellow Fever. The best skyline has not to have super tall buildings. London may be better than New York.

Some members here are really testing my patience and I'm telling you now that its getting thinner each day. I've deleted a few posts on the previous page and I don't want to see those stuffs again.

I dont give out infractions, instead I would put those trouble makers striaght to the brig or even ban them. So don't be surprised if suddenly you find that you can't post here anymore.
