To me, there is nothing with BKK including the skyline.

But again, skyline is the issue here and people will have a mixed reaction of it.

Kowloon is not an island.

If BKK forumers had any shame they wouldn't spam the same pics 10000 times

Kowloon is part of the mainland.

There are already three underwater road tunnels connecting HK Island to Kowloon.

Please don't include those in thai forum. There is only one forumer that is constantly spamming. Direct it to him only and report him to the Mod, as our reason cannot reach him anymore (we tried several times).

It's not funny for us either that he is spamming pics here every day and hateful comments are then direct towards us in Thai forum, even though we have nothing to do with it. We tried to reason him, but that is clearly not working.

Bridge approaches take up lots of land which is not something Hong Kong wants to waste.

Having a bridge connecting HK Island and Kowloon kinda ruins the scenery and harbour setting!

It depends on the design of the bridges and driving across the bridge will have an awesome scenery but having a bridge will slow down the traffic.

This is because star cruise or other big ships were to pass by might need to open up the bridge. Unlike underground tunnel which able to have smooth traffic journey.

You got ships passing through The Golden Gate Bridge in SF heading to its harbor.

Same with The Verrazano-Narrows Bridge in NY!

It is the height.

I think hkskyline is right about the land thingy
