Hong Kong, Shanghai, Singapore, and Tokyo. But in a few years there will be more cities with great skylines.

Asia is growing and her cities show it

I'll be looking to that if it happens! Because right now, most European cities don't have the density that HK has. Moscow seems like the closest.

The CENTRAL DISTRICT in HK alone could lay claim to the World's Greatest Skyline. This is insanely comical.

I choose Singapore.... NOT!

Josin, European cities would look better and more charming without those skyscrapers Especially cities like Istanbul, London or Paris. Well London can be an exception cause there are already alot of high-rises in the city.

Art Deco, Singapore has a very impressive skyline! I actually like it but the only disadvantage with their city is the 280 m height limit! Singapore's skyline is not just quantity but also quality as well

Correct because those cities have excelled on low-rise architecture

Not really low-rise but classical architecture.

The thing about European cities is, their population and density is not that large compared to Asian cities. Asia's largest cities have twice the population compared to Europe's largest cities.

Asian cities are crowded, dense so the need for high-rise buildings. Especially Hong Kong where there's limited land with a huge population.

Yes, Singapore is beautiful. However, Central District alone in HK is more impressive and people are posting pics of the ENTIRE Singapore skyline that still don't compare.

Honestly I like Central. It's not just the skyline but the vibrancy. No Asian city can come close to this when it comes to downtowns.

Central last Christmas

I get what you mean...well we have to wait till singapore has a skyline like manhatten....they are currently constructing the New Downtown, which may take about 10 years for the whole area to look great...so...by then we will not only have a small skyline to take pics of.

Manila, since it represents the outcasts, the underdogs, the darkhorses, the basketcases and the unnoteworthy.

Same with Hong Kong except it's much grittier than Manila. And it's skyline is 100 times much better as well
