Sg may not be able to compete with HK or Shanghai cos Singapore dont have supertalls, not because singapore cant afford to but due to height restriction of 300m thanks to a military airbase nearby CBD. However Singapore has 100+ buildings above 150m and most of them are new modern buildings.

Sg has a very good skyline, well planned city state, clean, green and good public infrastructure (maybe world best).
We're not talking about cleanliness and quality of infrastructure , we are talking about skylines , and in terms of skyline , SG lacks density , height and massiveness compared to other cities in the continent !

IMO Singapore's skyline quality ranks higher than the dense skyline of Tokyo..

For me, Hongkong is in the top place.

The rest behind Hongkong would be Shenzen, Singapore, and Manila.

My country's best, Jakarta, needs more skyscrapers to create a skyline as good as I mention above.

In terms of quality and Density , Sg has a far better skyline than Dubai IMO , adn I think there are numerous cities in Asia wich have a better skyline than Sg's one , such as Shenzhen , wich is gaining in height and in massiveness every day , Bangkok , the city of angels has an extensive skyline but does not have SG's quality , Abu Dhabi has a really good skyline and could compete with Singapores' one in some fields ...

The biggest problem in Sg's skyline that it's highly concentrated in one cluster wich is not so big , and that there aren't transition between skyscrapers and lowrises wich let us think that the skyline is not so dense !

Actually the reason why sg lack of density is due to the old colonial buildings in city area such as chinatown, little india, bugis and clarke quay area which govt forbid anyone to redevelop the area into skylines as preserving historic buildings is also the main objectives for singapore govt.

Unless those historis buildings demolished, sg would not be able to have a big skylines in downtown area. The govt had plans to develop marina bay into new cbd but its been 8-10 years and only marina bay sands, marina bay financial centre and a few buildings has been realized

Here is pic i took in URA tanjong pagar about the future of singapore skyline

Bottom left beside marina bay sands is the new cbd plan and U can see some big gap in the middle and these are the historic area to be preserved. And if you continue to shift to right u will see the skyline below
