Tel Aviv has quite a huge skyline as well, and they're also part of the Middle East.

Generally, Israel is considered more "European" politically than part of Asia, though geographically it is in a rather ironic position.

Nonetheless, Doha is in construction madness!

But geographically it is in Asia, and part of the Middle East.

Penang's skyline is quite huge and it's developing pretty well.

Israel is more politically inclined with Europe is because the country isn't in good terms with neighbouring Arab countries.

That's why you won't see Israel participating in the Asian games.

A bit more background :

Israel Invited to Asian Games
6 October 1994
Reuters News

HIROSHIMA, Japan, Oct 6 (Reuter) - Israel, ousted from the Asian Games over the Palestine issue more than a decade ago, was invited by Asia's top sports body on Thursday to return to the event any time it wanted.

Sheikh Ahmad al-Fahad al-Sabah, Kuwaiti president of the Olympic Council of Asia (OCA) said Israel had been given a choice to join either the European or Asian sporting federations.

"Israel opted for the European body. However, if they want to return to us, there is no problem," Ahmad said at the end of a two-day general assembly of the OCA, held during the Asian Games at Hiroshima.

It's yet to decide for Israel.

Other Eurasian countries such as Turkey and Cyprus are more associated with Europe than with Asia.

Political association has nothing to do with geographic location. Americans and British occupy Iraq now, but that doesn't mean Iraq has suddenly relocated to Europe or North America.

Cyprus is an interesting case. It is influenced by Turkey and Greece, which holds stakes in the divided island. Hence, it's just part of the Turkey vs. Greece geopolitical conflict manifested elsewhere beyond the Aegean. Cyprus itself is part of the EU.

Geographically, Cyprus is part of The Middle East.

Anyway, Tel Aviv has an impressive skyline but most of the tallest buildings in the city are in Ramat Gan.

Cyprus is in Asia, but is part of the EU. But that doesn't mean it is in Europe, and not Asia.

Yeah pls bear in mind KL has only a population of approx 1.5 mil. and a metro (klang valley) population of only approx. 5 mil. I'd say that's a pretty good skyline

DOHA is impressive. It really deserves to be called a construction land just like Dubai
