Listen guys, the title of this thread is here to stay and we are not going to change it, period. Remember, the best asian skyline is a subjective thing, somebody would think taller and more modern skylines look nicer while other would find more dense skylines with massive buildings look more attractive. I personally don't like HKs skyline because I find it quite messy and the tallest buildings are all scattered around in the city.

If you think certain cities skylines should be the best skyline in asia, then don't be shy and post their photos here.

I agree that we certainly need more photos of other cities skylines but at the same time we can't stop other people from posting their own fav skyline pics either.

BK and KL skylines are awesome but the same go to Osaka, Tokyo, Shanghai and Singarpore. Each city's skyline has their own charm and beauty and it will be real tough to pick a winner imo.

These threads are worthless anyway, why are people taking what people want to believe about which skyline is "the best" to heart?
Of course we'll never agree to anything so why even put emotion into it.

Actually no one said to stop posting pictures of Bangkok and Kl. All that was pointed out that it would be nice to have pictures of other skylines too. And more good quality pictures.

Yes but when you post 23 pictures in a row, in multiple threads - its OVERKILL! Some were good quality, but most were average. Learn to use some tact please.

No one ignored Osaka NihonKitty; they were easily the best pictures in the last 10 pages or so!

Your post is insulting, and I'm not even Japanese. Japanese cities are by far the cleanest, most modern and most futuristic cities in the whole world, with amazing skylines and unique architecture. They also have the most fashionably-dressed people, imo. After looking at pictures of them, the REAL disappointment is seeing all the dirty buildings, unclean streets and air pollution in other countries' cities. I am also tired of seeing BKK and KL on every page, I suspect a lot of people are!

Personally I think Asia's finest skyline is Shanghai, followed by Hong Kong and Tokyo. Hey, are Australian cities counted? Because then I'd say Sydney and Melbourne round out the top five

For crying out loud, do you know the difference between objective and subjective? I don't like most of the cities in here because they aren't even skylines to me, they're skymasses. Instead of attacking people who don't agree with you, perhaps list some objective reasons why you think your favorite skyline is good or why they're skyline isn't instead of using a freaking frownie-face smiley.

Personally, and in an unbiased way since I am not Asian and have never been to Asia, I would say it's a close race between Singapore, Hong Kong (minus Kowloon), and Makati. Bangkok is just on too large a scale for me to consider it one coherent skyline. Same applies for Shanghai, Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Tokyo, etc.

Middle Eastern cities, for the most part, are a joke to me. They lack depth. From the right angles, they look fantastic, but Dubai's one giant strip, practically the Vegas of Eurasia. Doha, well, Doha is just downright bad given the buildings that comprise its skyline. Shanghai as a whole is a huge mess of a skymass, same as Bangkok to me. Pudong by itself feels chaotic, with too many different "agendas" going on. Kuala Lumpur feels overwhelmingly dominated by Petronas, just throws the whole skyline off. Singapore has a well organized, coherent skyline as a whole at Marina Bay. Makati is the right blend of buildings and depth to look quite good at a distance. Hong Kong is just stunning, truly an amazing example of man and nature working together to produce an amazing waterfront skyline.
