The tall skyscrapers are generally on the south side of the Han River, such as the cluster in Gangnam.

Here's the Gangnam cluster along Tehran Street :


Yeouido has some skyscrapers, notably 63 Building, but the cluster is not densely packed together and is small. Gangnam has consistently high density all along the street, so the visual effect is far greater. However, this is not so visible since Seoul is a sprawled-out city and many mid- to low-rises dominate the landscape all around.

Kowloon Bay has quite an attractive skyline now as well.

In fact, I'm surprised I don't see more photographers lined up at the Quarry Bay Park promenade taking panoramas from Hung Hom (but visibly as far as Union Square/Mong Kok) all the way to Lei Yue Mun, with the Kowloon Peak and Lion Rock as great backdrops.

It's a really nice scene come dusk.

Actually it shows the opposite. It shows Shanghai has a huge urban expanse. Notice the buildings are not that tall in the picture. It's not that dense.
