Opinions are opinions, its all personal choices, some cities to you are great not necessary great to the other peoples. So stop forcing the cites you like down peoples throats.

U cant convince people by words only in here


Prove to them that ur city is great by posting their pictures here. Remember picture speaks a thousand words. I am sure its easier to post a pic here than typing paragraph of replies.


Also The more u boast mumbai, the more people will hate the city. Why? Because u cant convince them by unsupported statements or claims. Other than that u need to show pictures for other forumers to see to believe what u have said.

I think i will end my word here. I wont be replying anymore. Hope u understand how this forum works. U may know how to drive but u may not understand the traffic rules or etiquette.

We respect your opinion but you did not include Dubai Mumbai Manila Osaka Doha Istanbul Sharjah and rest
Didn't include Dubai because I thought we consider it Middle East, I don't really see Dubai in this thread. If Dubai was included I'd put it in top 5(not sure where though).

Mumbai's skyline is bad for now. Manila Doesn't qualify to Asian top10 imo, it's skyline is completely unrecognizeable, lack landmark towers, and it's significantly smaller than similar a similar contender(Bangkok). The same with Osaka - it's skyline isn't particularly impressive/iconic/recognizeable and simply worse than Tokyo's. About Sharjah I didn't even know such city exists and as I said I thought we treat Middle East as a separate region. Anyway in the Middle East alone there is few much better or atleast serious contenders(Dubai, Doha, Abu Dhabi, Kuwait City, Tel Aviv, Riyadh). Istanbul is considered Europe(it's located in Europe), and if considered Asian - I don't think it would even qualify as top 20, it's skyline is baaad(too spread out, no density, lack of landmark towers, lack of quality, lack of height aswell).

Your choice was good for the best Asian skylines but two cities i would not put them in top ten Guangzhou and Chonquing ? confused
Dubai and Mumbai are world famous cities as financial and one of economic powerhouses one of the largest international cities with one the largest airports and seaports.
Dubai one of the best skylines in the world with the tallest skyscraper in the world and Dubai is the top business gateway to Middle East and Africa.
Mumbai is the financial commercial and entertainment capital of India and it is one of the world's top ten centres of commerce in terms of global financial flows .Mumbai gdp $278 billion making it one of richest city in the world and top ten in Asia . Mumbai ranked in Alpha world city and Mumbai is the third most expensive office market in the world.
Mumbai is ranked top ten cities for Billionaires in the world.
Mumbai's airport is one of the largest in Asia which handles up to 40 million passengers a year. Mumbai seaport is one of Asia's largest and India's largest.

Guangzhou is great.


Guangzhou is part of china's 5 largest cities and central cities

Metro Population 24m

Gdp about $300b, per capita $19,000

Airport handles more than 55 million annually

Has few supertalls and also few under construction.

More than 7 metro line, a HSR station connected to other cities and has one of the largest port in asia.


Guangzhou definitely in top 10. Close to top 5 in term of everything. It is really a huge city, personally been there and impressed with the skyline view from canton tower. The city is also known for trade as it host trade expo annually that attracts global buyers. It is also a FTZ area and equally important with shanghai

This is my room view during last year visit

I would not put Guangzhou and Chongquing in top ten in Asia as Dubai and Mumbai should be in Asia's to ten ranking.
China's main cities are Shanghai Hong Kong and Beijing are you serious that Guangzhou and Chongquing are above Dubai and Mumbai in terms of International and Asian ranking Dubai and Mumbai are one of world's best known cities for trade commerce,business airports seaport and entertainment.

Mumbai looks like a latin city. A skyline of mostly concrete midrises.
That being said, I wont put it in my top 10.

Wait another few years around 2020 when all the supertalls are completed it might look even better but if you look at the city it is a island claw like shape that resembles New York in front of Arabian sea
