KL City is only one small part of the Klang Valley... the lights you see beyond the skyscrapers border shows how big Klang Valley really is, and note that Klang Valley is pretty hilly too...

Comparing the old city centre...

The old city centre is what I see on pics of KL before The Petronas was built. After the Petronas, pics of KL is more focus on the new city centre.

That's because Makati is a few kilometres from the bay unlike Manila (city). Yes Manila more represents a waterfront skyline compared to Makati and it's true that its not as iconic as HK or SG.

As for Dubai being the best, ever heard of HK?

Boston's skyline looks much different, because it is wider and spreads inland more. The 2 key buildings are John Hancock and Prudential, and they're not in the historic core, where the skyscraper cluster is located. In fact, from the ocean, those 2 big ones are hidden from view.
