Shanghai is the perfect example of where East meets the West (was nicknamed Paris of the East from a hundred or so years ago). There are also two main clusters of skyscrapers, Puxi & Pudong (old downtown & new CBD). I definitely would give Shanghai the top spot. Besides, it is skyline that we are talking about, and Shanghai definitely has a taller, more futuristic, and nicely arranged skyline.

IMO, Shanghai definitely tops the best Asian skyline rank, especially consider it's always been voted as the top two or three in the world. It has taller and more futuristic buildings, with a river separating the old downtown from the new CBD.

Hong Kong has traditionally been the first for many many years but it hasn't had many impacting changes in a while.

The third position would be a lot harder to pick because Tokyo and Kuala Lumpur's skylines are big but messy, Seoul is no where near the top tier yet, and cities like Shenzhen, Guangzhou etc. still need a few supertalls before they can compete with the first tier. Singapore's CBD isn't exactly the tallest but it's nicely built. Visually I might go for Singapore because it looks nicer than the others.

Just my personal preference. Yes, I'm a jingoist. =)
