Do you really think China builds dozens of high-rises just to create a skyline?

I would nominate Shenzhen as one of the top, as well.

Singapore's skyline is quite big if people try to zoom out and not only focus on MBFC area.

But compared to the massiveness of Bangkok and Jakarta, I guess you're right that Singapore's skyline is relatively smaller. Ironically, my top 3 southeast asian skylines are Singapore, Kuala Lumpur and Manila. But that's just because I prefer dense and well clustered skylines.

The residential towers outside the downtown core are not as iconic as those in the MBFC. Must be the reason why they are usually left out in the photos making the skyline much smaller than already is.

Actually singapore skylines is as big as KL and slightly behind bkk

The difference is that singapore skyline is separated by marina bay and also historic shophouses

So financial cbd in raffles and tg pagar is separated from financial cbd in rochor and residential in orchard. Moreover govt emphasize on building a garden city so the city centre itself should have certain percentage of greenery.

If all combined i am sure it will looks like as massive as bkk in term of size. But as for quality i think kl and sg is there. Jakarta and manila also

I find that Hong Kong skyline is very beautiful with the Victoria peak in the background and the harbor in the front is very mesmerizing and unique.
