As with the Philippine forumers, I think they're just showing and proving that Manila has an impressive skyline as well and not the intentions of showing they have the best skyline in Asia.

Come to think of it, when I look at Metro Manila, downtown is Makati and not the one on the north banks of Pasig River

I wonder how many people know of Chinese skylines. There is a lot of urban development happening and so many cities are unreported in here.

The only thing about Chinese skyline is that they're underrated or are not that publicized. Another thing is most of them lack iconic skyscrapers well except for a some mainland cities like Shanghai or Guangzhou.

A city doesn't need an iconic building for a large or good skyline. Vancouver is a good example. Even before a few tall buildings popped up, the skyline was still large and nice with ocean and mountain backdrops.

Vancouver has an impressive skyline. But it's also the city itself why it's skyline is being recognized. Vancouver is a magnet for immigrants especially from Asia or even HK. That's why the city is unofficially nicknamed "Hongcouver"

Vancouver's skyline is recognized because more know Vancouver than other Chinese cities like Urumqi or maybe Chongqing. Now these cities have impressive skylines but if you ask an average person especially in the United States, they never even heard of it.

Alot of people tend to be ignorant of the world around them including myself. I didn't know cities like Chongqing or Nanjing has some really nice skyline till I joined SSC!
