Half of the thread's pictures are from Metro Manila. Seems like there are no other stunning skylines in Asia except Manila?

If there is one way to judge the best skyline fairly. One should have visited all the major sklines im asia to give fair decision. So far my vote is with hongkong, its the best skyline that i have seen with my own eyes so far...

Or is it because Manila's skyline is underrated. Not alot of people outside SSC know that the city even has a skyline.

Then I have to say Tokyo.

I agree wit WANCH. They don't even know the word Makati, Ortigas, or Fort Bonifacio.

Tokyo's skyline is impressive but comparing it with HK? C'mon man

Of course they wouldn't know about Makati or Ortigas just like alot of pinoys don't know about Shinjuku or Shibuya unless they watch anime or have been to Tokyo

I said Tokyo 'cause I've been there and I've never been to HK.

I'm planning to go to Seoul and HK this year though.

That's exactly what I'm doing.

I will take Asiana from PDX to ICN and stay in Seoul for a few, then ICN to CRK.

During my stay in the Philippines, I will go to HK.

Oo nga. I will go there via Philippine Airlines because I like their food. But I don't think they will serve their food they serve in flights between MNL and SFO, which is sad..

PAL isn't that bad but I more recommend CX. If not, you can try those low cost airlines.

It's one of the best but it's more expensive compared to other airlines. Don't forget to take photos of skyline

I won't! Are there any good places to take shots of the skyline?
