From that aerial, it seems Shanghai doesn't have the height I was expecting it had from street level. But density-wise, its just awesome, but it seriously needs some green. It does look pretty ugly and gritty even from afar

Beijing is getting there, but the city still needs a lot of (highrise) development.

Definitely Hong Kong, but I must say, the petronas towers make Kuala Lumpar look stunning

One city that gets very little attention is Taipei, probably because it doesn't have much of a skyline outside of taipei 101.

One question: the BOC tower is obviously a very iconic HK skyscraper. Many people list it as their favourite skyscraper in the world!

If Hong Kong had the same skyline, but without the BOC tower, would it still be #1?

Maybe, If it didn't have the IFC it definitely wouldn't be though.

Hangzhou/杭州, Capital of Zhejiang Province, Eastern China. One of the Most Beautiful Cities in China.



Hangzhou Old Downtown Skyline is a bit flat due to the Height Restriction considering its adjacent location to the World Heritage Site, The West Lake.

By 2020, this place will host a potential 120-storey tower and skyline will double or triple. You can also see the National Palace here.
