I agree that Singapore has a very nice skyline and individual buildings look spectacular on their own, however, looking at the skyline as a whole is a bit underwhelming. Aside from the Marina Bay Sands and that cluster of nicely-shaped buildings, it's skyline doesn't offer much to remember compared to Kuala Lumpur with its Petronas towers and that other tall tower with the observatory on top.

Tokyo does amaze me on the low rise density BUT I am disappointed with the skyline. If you take pic in the day, you would onle see concretes and grey skyline. Very unattractive. And. I would put Tokyo behind Bangkok.
I would put Tokyo ahead of Bangkok. Actually, both cities are similar in terms of density but as far as buildings is concerned, Tokyo has more to offer like the Tokyo tower, the Skytree and other great-looking buildings.

Manila and Jakarta have whatever's lacking in one or the other. I agree, Manila has the density and nice clusters and Jakarta has the signature towers. Nice observation, but I would personally put these cities below Tokyo..

Among ASEAN5 countries.. KL is probably the best..

it has good clusters, moderate density, height and iconic towers. It has all the ingredients of becoming a top skyline.

I prefer Singapore over KL. There's a more distinct cluster in the Marina Bay and Downtown Areas.
