Anyway, it is great to see more asian cities booming, now I only hope that Burma and Cambodia can go the same path as Vietnam is doing now.
I disagree, Saigon may not catch up with other big cities in Asia or SEA in size but we definitely have some of the best tall good looking skyscrapers and you should visit Vietnam sub forum to see more coming skyscrapers that will erect in Saigon and Hanoi in the future. Since we're the new kid on the scene of skyline competition I think we did pretty good.

Ok, about half of those shots were of the Beijing skyline and pretty good! But, the other half were just of a few buildings or the elevated roads...could you be more selective next time please?

Seoul is a very nice and modern city but when it comes to skyline, it holds pretty much the same standard as Taipei, which is not that good.
