I know I've said this like thousand times before but I really think most the buildings in dubai are ugly as hell. believe me you have no idea of how corny those towers look to me. nothing against all of you dubai fans. dubai really has lots of very tall skyscrapers but I'll hate it forever. because of the buildings, because most of them only exist to show off and so on. sorry guys

Can't we say exactly the same thing about HK for example ?
The majority of Hk's buildings are ugly as hell with too much concrete and a gritty feeling on them , even if Hk has an incredible density and very high skyscrapers ( largely overtooked by chinese cities though) ...

At least hk island has many beautiful skyscrapers. From central all the way to causeway bay. Many are office towers hence it looks glassy. The density adds more taste to it


However i dont like hk skyline around kowloon area as its filthy and disgusting. Even the tallest tower of ritz carlton hotel also not nice in my opinion. But if u put it in the same frame with hk island, it will still fit in.

I think hk other than hk island and kowloon, they still have many other skylines like tsuen wan, lantau, new territories, etc. though mostly residential, they are tall enough to wow me despite their location located outskirt cbd

Imo Hk needs a very large revitalization/greenification plan , espacially in Kowloon ( sham shui po , mong kok etc ...)
It's innaceptable that an international financial centre like HK still has soo many gritty and very bad looking neighborhoods wich are generally not too far from the very centers of the city , HK streets need some greenery to counterbalance it's extreme urban feeling !
Hk should learn from Tokyo when it comes to making some neighborhoods more livable and good looking !

Well, I've seen far worse in New York (Bronx, parts of Brooklyn, across the river in Newark) and London (east end). Every modern city will have its good and bad neighbourhoods. At least the poorer areas of HK are not as crime-ridden as our other developed counterparts.

We also have lovely beaches and country parks within close proximity of our dense urban areas. 3/4 of our city is undeveloped. We need to take more advantage of that.
