Israel is geographically part of Asia, part of The Middle East. But it's political and cultural affiliation is more that of Europe.

It does not participate in The Asian Games but participate within The European League. Plus Israel also participates in other major Euro events such as Euro football and Eurovision song writing contest. Various travel guides promoting Europe will include Israel and to some extent, Egypt and Turkey.

Russia and Turkey are also affiliated with Europe as well despite some parts of the country being on The Asian side.

I've never seen Busan from this angle. It makes a big difference.

Without trying to be overcritical, I find Nanjing and Shenzhen's skylines quite unappealing and certainly uninspired. The best skyline in Asia is (and I think everyone will agree with this statement): Pudong. Every building is an absolute work of art, at least in the CBD. Once the apartments start taking over it's... meh. Hong Kong is incredible, too, especially looking south towards the city with Victoria Peak in the background. Singapore is pretty amazing, as well, and unlike the Chinese and Indian cities, you can actually see the buildings!

I suppose I like the natural influence in big cities... with Pudong being the notable exception!

Does anyone know the name of the Foster-esque building in the second-to-last Nanjing photo?

It blows my mind how such incredible projects go seemingly unnoticed in China, yet would be instant icons anywhere else.

It looks a bit like Tour Carpe Diem in Paris.

This is a tough top 10 list, so I'll pick 10 without necessarily ordering them.

First of all, there are 5 Chinese cities that clearly deserve to be there, and anybody who leaves them out obviously just doesn't quite understand the way these skylines stack up to whatever they put in their place... (particularly Guangzhou seems to be the forgotten mega-city around here)
-Hong Kong
-Shanghai
-Shenzhen
-Guangzhou
-Chongqing

That leaves 5 more skylines. Easy choices are:
-Dubai
-Tokyo
-Kuala Lumpur

I'm going to slip Singapore in there due to the quality and compactness, but it's due for a tumble if it never lifts its height restrictions.

That leaves one spot left in the top 10. My best candidates (for now) are: Bangkok, Beijing, Nanjing, Seoul, Busan, Abu Dhabi, Doha, and Osaka.

I'm going to put Bangkok in there at #10 for now, but honestly I expect it could fall out of the top 12-15 within 3-4 years with the rates some of these other cities are constructing skyscrapers and supertalls. (including some not listed at all yet, like Tianjin)

The one sure thing I can say is that this list is very fluid. Looking forward to the next couple of years.

I don't think that's it..

I think it's mainly because its skyline is not really that recognized..
