What makes Seoul's skyline better than HK? Seoul, though is an impressive and dynamic city but it's skyline is typical of Asian cities. It's also disorganized and it's skyscrapers are scattered around. The city also lack supetalls and scraper landmarks that Hong Kong has.

Hong Kong is truely the best skyline in Asia and in the world! Seoul can come in as no.5 after HK, Shanghai, Singapore and Tokyo!

I like Seoul's skyline as well but I don't think it deserves no.1!

Anyway, Ulan Bator

I love Seoul's topography--(mountains) also I loke the buildings. Heighth is not the only thing I judge in a skyline. Ulan Bator is interesting. I like the blocks of apartments. The desert and mountains in the background are cool also.

Seoul's got a nice topography but compared to HK, I prefer HK's topography. At least HK's got coastlines, islands and alot of peaks and peninsulas! It's the finest harbour in The Far East and the perfect place to have the world's greatest skyline!

I may be biased but HK is official ranked by many as the best skyline in Asia and worldwide.

Here's one

Singapore's skyline would have been at par with HK if they didn't have height restrictions.

Jakarta's skyline is at par with Manila, no better or worse
