Great cities in Asia and lot more modern than Europe and the best places i visited were
Dubai- i think the best city in Asia very tall skyscrapers and big shopping malls
Tokyo- very advanced city like the ones in North America
Mumbai- biggest building projects going on but transport needs improving
Singapore- great city with some tall buildings it's tourist attraction, its discipline and cleanliness
Bangkok - gleaming skyscrapers grace the skyline and clean city
Kuala Lumpur-night life is awesome with illuminated skyscrapers one of best places in the world.
Hong Kong- this city is truly Asia's world city bustling with life 24 hours
Like to visit other places in future Shanghai Seoul Manila and Jakarta

Even the tallest not tall and not many above 200m buildings.

I think Singapore doesn't have that many skyscrapers between 150 and 200m while Metro Manila does have a lot of them. Only a guess but that's the only explanation that comes to my mind right now.

The list isn't actually a calculation of the best skyline, only of list of each city's number of buildings over 90M. There's no real methodology there.

Even that the above 90m, singapore has more than manila

Maybe they measure different points for different range of heigh and i think manila has more 150m building above compared to sg

The average height of Manila buildings are higher than those of SG

Same goes to Dubai and Tokyo

Tokyo has more buildings >90m in height than Dubai but Dubai is a notch higher than Tokyo in the list

they use Emporis data , and giving extra points to height and supertalls. not only by number of towers.

but strange even according to Emporis data Tel Aviv and metropolitan area has 141 towers 90< meter, not only 95 as in their chart. (and 100+ u.c).

a year ago I did mail them more info about TA area. so they add some more buildings since.
