To me, Hong Kong is still the best skyline even with the 2IFC or any of those supertalls

The most disappointing skylines in Asia lie in Japan, Taiwan, and probably Korea too. They should have way better skylines. Their skylines hardly match their economic achievement.

I would have said Dubai but its still developing but without doubt in a couple years it will be Dubai in first place..

Hmm out of the others, HK is pretty darn high in my list but im not sure bout the others although im sure they are pretty good with respect to skylines

Partly true but cities like Tokyo has an impressive skyline. I think these cities focus more on urban planning than skylines. To these cities, skylines are not the most important issue.

Japan lies in an earthquake zone so Tokyo does not build supertalls if not the Landmark Tower in Yokohama.

Their skylines don't match their economic achievement but their skyscraper architecture does.

Singapore on the other hand could have an impressive skyline or some supertalls if it wasn't for their height restrictions.

Especially the uncessary ones! Taipei doens't have an effective skyline compared to HK! Taipei has Taipei 101 but that's it. How many supertalls does Taipei have and how many does Hong Kong have.

Hong Kong is still the no.1 skyline in Asia and no.1 in the world!

HK has the best skyline in theworld and everyone knows that there is no discussion about that. I think you should make an thread like ASOA'S BEST SECOND SKYLINE.

That would look good especially for Asian cities since most of them look vibrant at night.

Tokyo, Seoul and Singapore can do it, but I don't know if they have that planned for their skylines.
