I think this is a battle between Shanghai, Hong Kong and Dubai.
Previously, I always think the ranking goes (1) HK, (2) Shanghai, (3) Dubai, now
it's (1) Shanghai, (2) HK, (3) Dubai.

Despite HK still being the most nicely located among the 3 with mountains and the sea, I think, its skyline had lost its luster to Shanghai with Shanghai's new developments and interesting architecture. Hong Kong remains a strong contender with its beautiful setting and multiple vantage points which Shanghai lacks. I think Shanghai is amazing with the view of the Bund but other than that, it's just a sea of skyscrapers. Dubai, on the other hand is strong at number 3. Its numerous supertalls are amazing and the night view is spectacular, however, looking at Dubai, I always thought there's something lacking in the picture. I can't even figure out what. It's just lacking something.

I'd put Tokyo at number 4 and Kuala Lumpur at number 5 in my current list.

if you compare those three by combined height than tokyo is with 73,0 m a lot taller than shenzen with 33,4 m or guangzhou with 42,8 m and that even though tokyo doesn't have those tons of high residential mid-rises you always see in chinese cities. the reason for that is pretty simple: toyko has a lot more skyscrapers with a height between 100 and 250 m and when i say a lot i mean a lot! the reason i like tokyo skyline is a different though. i simply like the variety. the almost completely white skyline of yokohama, the 'old' skyline of shinjuku, the western skyline of marunouchi and outemachi, ... tokyo is lots of small different skylines becoming one big skyline.

there are glassy towers in tokyo too chiyoda for example has lots of them. however if you mean slender towers with special form with glassy then tokyo really isn't the skyline for you. the typical japanese building design is boxy. in tokyo skyscrapers aren't build to look special or impressive but to have more office and living space. efficiency if you know what i mean.

Yes i understood


When I went to tokyo and osaka, i wasnt impressed by their cbd skyline as it looks dull and less design

But they do have the density and maybe height by data. If there is a city resemble tokyo, it would be seoul but with shorter height.

i have to add one thing though: a lot of the u/c or pro/plan projects in tokyo right now have pretty special design so you'll see more buildings like that in a few more years
i wouldn't call buildings like the mode gakuen cocoon tower or tokyo metropolitan government building unimpressive though but well everyone his opinion
