Definitely Hong Kong.

Personally I think a beautiful skyline doesn't necessarily mean a massive skyline. It's the skyline quality that matters. And by quality, I mean beauty. A skyline is beautiful when you look at it, you're like "wow, it's gorgeous!". Many cities have massive skylines, some with iconic skyscrapers, but I don't find them beautiful at all, impressive but not beautiful. Those skylines somehow look chaotic, even messy although they have many beautiful buildings. For this reason, I find Hong Kong the best skyline in the World, even better than NYC and Chicago, I must say.

they have lots of potential. Mumbai will change a lot in the coming years and so will Chongqing.

I personally don't think it can be among the top three in mainland China.

here are two more Chongqing skyline pics(probably posted already but I am not sure):

Shenzhen, China


source and owner: house.sina.com.cn

The picture is outdated as there are many more skyscrapers and supertalls built after the pic was taken years ago(for instance, check this thread for some new buildings). But it still shows most of the skyline.

IMO Shenzhen skyline is well planned (check here to see a few pics and videos made by YannSZ showing how they plan the whole city as well as individual buildings and infrastructures in Shenzhen). It has the height, the density and a nice topography, pretty much everything required for a nice skyline. The greenery and tidiness is also a big plus. It ain't as good as its neighboring brother Hong Kong, but it should be among the top three in mainland China and top 10 in Asia.

chongqing skyline is rather unique and is a class of its own compared to other emerging skylines in china which kinda feel like HK-wanna-be's... although they are amazingly massive!

among all chinese skylines, HK and shanghai gets my top apprecition...
