There is a big difference between commercial areas as in offices and commercial areas as in retail. That is clearly why Central, Admiralty, and Wan Chai's office districts have very little neon ads. Even within Wan Chai's older areas, there is just one road that has some neon (along the tram line). All the others don't have them.
Oops my bad I was referring to Wellington St. which is nearby Lan Kwai Fong. And the place has some neon concentration.

In the case of Wan Chai, there are neon concentrations along Hennesey Rd. and also along the entertainment areas of Lockhart and Jaffe Rds.

This is Hennessy Road, whose neon overhanging ads are spotty at best.





This is either Jaffe Road or Lockhart Road from the pedestrian bridge leading to Central Plaza. Not a lot of neon ads either.



This is the tram line, where most of the neon advertisements are located in Wan Chai. Even then, it's not that crowded. The tram line loop around Happy Valley has a lot more to show.

Most of Jaffe Rd's strong neon concentration are near Causeway Bay close to The Elizabeth House.

Do you have a picture? There is a lot more neon on the south side of Causeway Bay along the tram line.

This may sound silly and crazy but I'm having a hardtime uploading pics in the Photobucket including photos I took of Wan Chai streets. But southside Causeway Bay does have lot of neon

KLCC isn't really that dense. There's another area that has a lot more skyscraper concentration. Here are some older photos from my visit to Menara KL a few years ago :

KL's skyline is pretty clean and not as chaotic say, Shanghai.

If you're talking about Pudong, then it's not chaotic at all. Everything's planned very orderly around the waterfront. Puxi is a little mixed with skyscrapers popping up all over the place, but it's hardly chaotic.

Yes Pudong and it's surrounding areas look organized. KLCC can be compared with Pudong. Though I look at Puxi on the same level of density as Bangkok.

^ Indeed. If Manila, would have a supertall and improve the night lighting of its towers, then it would be second

There is a possibility for Manila to be no.2 or no.3. Right now, Skycity and Rockwell Centre are the best to make this happen. As for lighting scheme, there's a nice purple one for Robinson's Galleria but it's only the lower part. It's skyscrapers aren't lighted.

Definitely no. Pudong has a lot more skyscrapers and the cluster is far bigger. Keep in mind Pudong has both the commercial and residential sections. Behind the commercial skyline under construction, there are a lot of residentials.

Puxi is also far more dense than Bangkok. Bangkok's skyline is a lot more spread out, whereas Puxi has a lot of midrises clustered together and a few supertalls now and then.

My bad. I was more focusing on Pudong's office buildings than residential ones. But there are alot of residentials and a few office buildings beyond Pudong CBD.

That's quite obvious in Shanghai's context. Go up Jin Mao or Oriental Pearl and there is a huge sea of skyscrapers on both sides of the river.

I'm actually flying to Shanghai after my Manila trip but be dropping by HK first. And I do plan to go up Oriental Pearl while I'm there.
