That's the thing about Asian cities, they are being Manhattanized!

I find it nice that on the other side of the harbor is already another country as with those lights in the background!

While Manila have great streetscape and cityscape,the city feels like it doesn't have an identity.Manila feels like an America city displaced in Asia but it doesn't have the same strong vibe Singapore or Bangkok gave.Even KL starts to have its own identity now which is basically city of supertalls which it was missing years back.

The Philippines was colonized by The United States and previously, Spain.

So its cityscape have both influences!

Personally, I prefer Manilaís skyline over Bangkok or Seoul as the latter is so scattered.

Manilaís is more organized with its clusters.

And it is getting better! Alot of nice projects happening such as The Proscenium!

The Grand Hyatt Metrobank Centre in BGC gave the metro its first supertall and it is an impressive scraper!

Iím not dissing on BKK but Metro Manilaís skyline is getter better!

Certainly not the best in Asia but again is getting better, much better!

Discuss: Best Asian Skyline

The problem with Metro Manila though is that, the metro became a conurbation.

So it has become individual cities instead of functioning as one metro!

Take those skyline rankings or skyscraper diagrams, there would be individual ranking and diagram for each city in Metro Manila.

Makati would have its own and so is Manila, Pasig, Taguig, Quezon City, etc.

Not like Tokyo or Jakarta where the ranking and skyscraper diagrams cover the entire metro.

Skyscraperpage is an example!

Note: Iíll edit this later and provide links and examples as Iím reply through the mobile app. Hard to do it using a phone!

I think it's only people who are not familiar with it that would say it has no identity nor strong vibe. It is a blend of Spanish, American and Asian altogether combined which makes it unique you wont see anywhere else in the world. Would you see an Intramuros style place on a normal American city? If you wont see that identity then you might be blind perhaps or just imitating others unfounded perception. IMO.
