I agree with this. I rather have a massive cityscape with many different skylines than one iconic skyscraper dwarfing the rest.

lol, of course it does look like that with what you have done with the pictures.
anyway this thread is meant for discussing Asian skylines so the versus thing is inevitable, especially to those behind Hong Kong skyline.

Basically, Hong Kong Skyline alone is the thread title... since it's no doubt it's the Best Asian Skyline

Best skyline ? What !?? How can we compare skylines of cities with totally different population ( and population density ) , totally different culture/architecture etc ? To me it's like comparing koala to elephant , which is better ?

I don't think we can ever compare any ! Tell me, in what way can we compare the skylines of Bangkok ( metro population up to 12 mil ) to Singapore ( population up to 6 mil ) to Georgetown ( population up to 1.5 mil ) ? This is not something to compare , because naturally and unavoidably, cities with bigger metro population like Bangkok or Seoul tend to have denser skylines than say, Georgetown or Abu Dhabi .

no it's totally fine to post pictures of skyline here.. nothing is wrong with that.. the problem is the mod of this thread erased a lot of arguments related to the thread topic.. which mess up the entire "discussion"

I know comparing can lead to arguments as what is happening in this thread but how can we distinguish the best skyline without comparing them?
Of course, we can compare city skylines having different number of population and different cultures... after all, it's not the people and the culture are what we are comparing at. It's more safe to say that the massiveness, density, height, and the design (architecture) of the skyscrapers are the criteria. (i'm not trying to be an expert here.. lol)
You can not also conclude that cities with bigger population tends to have denser skylines, just look at Jakarta and Bangkok.

Again, it's okay to compare skylines as long as we are open minded enough to appreciate the beauty of other skylines, not just our own.

bigger population does not always mean better skyline.. because if that logic is true, then calcutta is better than singapore, seattle, san francisco, sydney and a lot more...

Same is true in the case of ASEAN skylines, Bangkok and Singapore, which are, for me, the best in the region, aren't the most populous either..
