You are probably right, its not "best Asian skyline with best skyscrapers" but at least you have to have a skyline to start off with. And the 6 photos you posted after Bangkok does not have one.

Chinchuta, why do you like to post old pics of Thailand? Those pics are from what, 1999?
The only ones that are updated are the "Bangkok Thonburi zone".

PATTAYA

Pattaya doesn't really have any good skyline today, but it is shaping up to be in the future. It has many projects going on right now, many tall ones between 50-70 storeys. They were also going to build a supertall which was going to be over 400 meters tall, don't know if it is under construction now.

Beijing is quite under-rated because it doesn't really have any notable skyscrapers (yet) and has a pretty poor skyline compared to HK, Shanghai, Shenzhen, Guangzhou, Chongqing...etc

That's true. Five years later, give or take, when the CBD east expansion is gonna complete it will probably occur to people that Beijing is a long term hidden pearl in the north.

...I totally agree with you, but the CCTV headquarters is a very notable skyscraper imo..I actually would say that this building beats many other in the world in regards to the design! but yes, it needs more like this!

by the way 7freedom7, are these pics taken form CCTV HQ?
