Asian skylines will ever be defeated by any Europe's big guy

God bless Asia, you're the future of the world.

Hong Kong also has magnificent skylines alongside Shanghai. They're both fantastic in their own ways.

They are both awesome skylines.
Shangai has an edge because of its futuristic tower. The skyline is so unique because of this single building alone. If you demolish the tower, then Honk Kong's skyline becomes better in my opinion.
Since it is unfair to choose one... I love and want to see both.

I agree with you marcus, they're both absolutely incredible skylines and also comparable in terms of total number of highrises and skyscrapers within city boundaries. What i like about Hong Kong skyline is that it's layout, composition, natural scenery like the mountains in the foreground and harbours next to the skyscrapers etc. On the other hand, like you've described many towers in Shanghai have cutting edge architecture that gives futuristic sense and the night lighting scheme is just breathtaking. I personally think that Shanghai skyline has more "promising" potential to dominate not only in Asia but also on the global scale. It's U/C towers also have very modern designs and unbelievable height. I reckon China already has taken the mighty America when it comes to skylines and heights haha

Hong Kong is still my favorite skyline in Asia...but in 2014 Shanghai will become my favorite...because of a certain building . Tokyo remains a distant third to me, maybe when the Sky Tree is finally turned on it can keep being #3 for me instead of being surpassed by all the other cities that it's close to again all in my opinion and mine only.

Imo, the north american skylines have long been surpassed by the asian skylines. When you look at NYC for example, even with the new under construction WTC completed it would be still no match to the Asian top three. North American skylines are just too old and lacking the futuristic feel as their asian counterparts.
