my fav skyline is Hongkong .. best of the best Hk iseven more excellent esp, the symphony of light is on show... love Kowloon side... been there 4 times still wanna go again.


Singapore skyline is nice and clean.. great transport system. .. excellent shopping cluster.

Bangkok skyline is huge but is spread every where not in order.. .I hate the very bad traffic here

Kl has a very nice grean area but I was dissapointed with the skyline size ( I was expected so much from the spot advertisement)
the bus terminal was so dirty and old

JKT. and Manila. never been. want to go in da future
visit Manila next year for sure)

Do visit both cities. Manila on the other hand has an excellent nightlife.

There was lot of heated debate over the circle design. The circle reminded residents of the rising sun, and the painful Japanese occupation during WW2. Hence, a more neutral square was adopted instead.

Yes but it's history. Can't most Shanghainese live on?

I suggest you read up on contemporary East Asian history before making that remark. The entire region still has very bitter feelings over the Japanese invasion in WW2. Koreans and Chinese have been fairly vocal (Koreans moreso) over recent attempts to desensitize textbooks in Japan to whitewash their war crimes, while senior Japanese leaders have paid numerous visits to the war shrine where war criminals are buried. The atrocities from WW2 are far from settled. It's not Germany.

Yes Shanghai scrapers are spread out but at least they have a financial district or a CBD (Pudong). Ok Pudong is not downtown Shanghai but it can act as one.

Yes it's understandable. Anyway, I don't wanna get further with this issue. But again, I still prefer the round hole for the SWFC. It's just me.

Puxi remains the core of Shanghai simply due to its history. Pudong is only about a decade old, and there are still many empty plots of land around where Jin Mao and Oriental Pearl stand. In time, they will get filled out.

Yes, it's a very sensitive political issue, and a major reason why Sino-Japanese relations are not very warm right now.
