Agree, but Singapore skyline lacks both height and density! Why not capture photos in Yishun, Woodlands or Punggol?

I think I like KL skyline probably due to the twin tower. Actually KL are in the same league as SG. But just that I prefer SG skyline more as it shows modern feel.
Agree here.

Bangkok have pretty big skyline however their buildings are not concentrated and even though they have more 150m above skyscrapers than SG but its too spread out that makes the skyline less impressive. Moreover Bangkok doesnt have distinctive look as the Baiyoke doesnt look attractive to me.
Bangkok have such a massive skyline that dwarfs Singapore's. To me Bangkok is the best skyline in South East Asia followed by Singapore.

Quote:
Manila and Jakarta do have similarities but just that Manila skyline are better organized. Jakarta need more density while Manila need signature/landmark tower. Both cities are on same par for me and probably score better than Tokyo
Manila also lacks the density but agree on you as far the clustering is concern.

Yishun woodlands and punggol are formed mainly by HDBs which has lack of height and not much height difference. A better neighbourhood area that has different height will be bukit batok and ang mo kio.

What interest u more? High dense, modern architectures or massive skyline? If u look for massive u can look at sao paulo, if u look at modern u can look at shanghai/dubai amd if high dense u can look at hk. Which suits u? It depends on the preference. I love massive skyline as well as high dense but i would also go for modern architectures. Bkk don't have them like sg. Most of the new buildings in bkk are formed in new cbd beside the chao praya river but thats not enough density. If those were build in the sukhomvit it would be amazing.

AFAIK singapore skyline are equally massive as bkk and even they have more modern buildings. U can see many bkk buildings are dull and 'messy'. Apologies to bkkers, but i just feel that sg has better look than bkk and bkk is awesome as well.


This kind of preference has no right no wrong

(Forum Moderators, if this thread is located in the wrong subform, please let me know what sub-forum it should be in, Thanks)

What are the rules?
This list is an attempt to rank the impressiveness of city skylines. The score of a city is equal to the sum of all building heights (structural height, in m) after substraction of the minimum of 90m/295ft for each building. Freestanding towers (not skyscrapres) count for half their height. Only completed and topped-out buildings are included. More Details



Full Updated List 100 + Skylines
...

Disapointed with the Results?

Bangkok's skyline is also changing rapidly. They already have density and a supertall (BaiyokeII ?)... and another amazing supertall under construction (Maka Nakhon).... and a couple or three proposed supertalls..... this will also be a skyline to watch over!

There are three supertalls under construction in Bangkok if I'm not mistaken.

Capella residence 305 m.
Mahanakorn 314 m.
Iconsiam 315 m.
