1. Tokyo - dynamic architecture, the individual buildings themselves are artistic
2. Hong Kong - classic and iconic setting
3. Kuala Lumpur
4. Singapore
5. Shanghai - some buildings gorgeous but designs too fancy
6. Guangzhou
7. Dubai - some areas bare, once filled can easily move into the top 3
8. Kuwait City
9. Bangkok - very artistic buildings as well but misses an iconic building
10. Jakarta

Epic Aerial Photos of Shanghai by radics.geza from flickr

NOTES:

Xujiahui / 徐家汇 (further down the lower left corner),
Changning's Business Districts (Zhongshan Park/ 中山公园 and Hongqiao / 虹桥 on yr further left-hand-side),
Huamu and Century Park/ 花木及世纪公园 ( East of Lujiazui in Pudong on yr further right-hand-side) Clusters are absent from both of the the photos unfortunately.
......
nevertheless they give you the impression how big Shanghai's city proper is.

You are right. but I think Ho Chi Minh City is much Better to compare with Manila. I guess Ho Chi Minh city become one of the big city in South East Asia like Singapore, KL and BKK.

Singling out? this individual has really this hatred w/ Manila. Sorry dude HCm has great potentials but as of the moment I have to believe that even if you combine HCM,Hanoi, Danang & Na Trang altogether they are still short of MM, IMHO.

Ya see, Manila, Bangkok and KL are the three most overrated skylines in the world. And I found that those cities have quite a lot of arrogants.

On the contrary, they are the most underrated... And were not arrogant, were just putting rebuttals to racist and haters who are ignorant in a number of topics... Try sowing respect and you will be reaping respect! But try otherwise, what would you be reaping would be otherwise...

Let me tell you what does underrate mean. It means China.

Back to topic, I think you know it bloody well that the sunwhateverorange guy came from Thailand so don't pull other country into your argument. I'm sick of seeing Thai and Philipino arrogants use Vietnam as a tool in their Bangkok vs Manila stuffs.
