shanghai definitely has the best skyline. not just in asia, but worldwide

Riyadh skyline looks messy to me. Seems one skyscraper with another doesnt blend well

Moscow would still have my vote as the most unique CBD. But since we are in ASIAN thread, my vote goes to Shanghai Pudong

imo, all skylines in the middle east are ugly although they have some beautiful buildings. they're trying to bulid as tall as they can to show the world their wealth, but all I can see is kitschy

Yeah yeah everyone have their own opinion and sincerely I love Riyadh, Doha, Dubai & Abu Dhabi skyline. Look futuristic for me not worse at all. At least, they have their own way to make their skyline look nice.

well dubai is actually debatable because it does look utopian but it's skyline is too soul-less. I personally prefer those that seemed more human-ish. but riyadh? it's just universally ugly af. common sense will tell you so

if you say it's all just the matter of taste, I'd say some were just born tasteless. some people just have poor understanding about what a good design is and pardon me but those who's favoriting riyadh's skyline are. I wonder if it's your bias-ness speaking

Amazing eyes, what a collection of stunning pictures. From The cities that i've been Hong Kong is by far my favorite; stunning skyscrapers and hard to beat setting!!!
