I also look at Sao Paulo defining this example though they lack the supertalls that Shanghai has.

But Shanghai has the potential since it has more land for development compared to HK. Also, high-rises are necessary to house it's large population.

Totally agree!

HK is by far the champ of Asian skyline!

Follow by Shanghai and Seoul with tons of density all over the city!

Many other SE asian cities like KL, Metro Manila, Bankok also very impressive!

Dubai skyline is tall but isn't dense overall and it is being build!

What makes KL's skyline nice is not just The Petronas and the KL Tower but also the other skyscrapers like Menara Telekom. It's also nice to view KL's skyline in the mountains though it's not as breathtaking as HK's

Currently, got so many tall buildings rising surrounding the Twin, n the skyline panorama will change radically.

Lets just hope they get built. There was one supertall proposed during the mid-90s called Plaza Rakyat. But it was never built.

For those who think Dubai can match HK, think again

This is the eastside of HK Island. This district includes Chai Wan and Siu Sai Wan.

KL skyline is really really impressive. if only mention one skyline of a city, KL wont lose to shanghai. but pudong district is a small part of shanghai, every shanghai district has massive skyscrapers, for KL, the skyscrapers concentrated mostly in CBD eara. so i still go for shanghai.
hongkong skyline has been perfect, no words to say.
TOKYO is amony the top 3 skyline, tokyo night is really rediculous, and tokyo is very very huge.
