Hong Kong of course.

BTW, you could find much better pictures of Hong Kong and Shanghai, but the Kuala Lumpur picture knocked me off my feet.

on second thoughts I'd put Dubai 5th, because Dubai is very special and has unique views and a very special way in which the city looks like (very unlike other cities), but it DOES not necesarily have a really great skyline, it's just a special skyline, with special buildings.

not the most beautiful.

So Dubai 5th

1. HK
2. Singapore
3. Kuala Lumpur
4. Shanghai
5. Dubai

Well, KL has some nice highrise, but the Petronas and this other (televesion?) tower are just too dominant.
