that we call bird eyeview..... skyline is the overall or partial view of a city's tall buildings and structures consisting of many skyscrapers in front of the sky in the background. It can also be described as the artificial horizon that a city's overall structure creates....

whtever...dont have much time to explain to you about "SKYLINE",most of your post is cityscape and bird eyeview..and in my personal point,kl skyline is still great..never disappointing me...the arrangement,planning and architectural aspect..

well I actually prefer Koala Lumpur over Bangkok because the city looks neat and better planned (the same reason why I choose Singapore over Koala Lumpur)

just like when a person is choosing a painting, he would not just pick the largest painting, but rather he would pick the better sketched, better painted.. imo in this case the skyline of Koala Lumpur though smaller, is the better sketched (quality architecture, better planned, neat) compared to larger Bangkok..

Bangkok- the larger skyline

Koala Lumpur- "better sketched"



(trust me I tried to search for more decent photos of Bangkok but couldn't find any, blame the photographers)

but my world's best skyline still belongs to Shanghai though, closely followed by Hong Kong, and NYC comes in third

singapore has a really nice clean dense skyline i think its pretty close to where it should be. kuala lampur is the most overrated by far to me though. some of the ugliest buildings grouped together if you dont consider the PT personally they even arnt good enough to make it much of a competition even.

Why does many people like to judge Kuala Lumpur skyline with and without the Petronas Tower?
Next time, why not judge Shanghai without the Jin Mao and SWFC. Or Toronto without the CN Tower. Or maybe Chicago without the Sears. The tower is there so judge it with it. Deal with it.

that's exactly what I think.. honestly Koala Lumpur is nowhere near world's best skyline but regionally (Southeast Asia) the city's doing quite well.. I mean Bangkok or Singapore or Manila wouldn't like it either if two or three tallest towers in the city were to be taken out.. the Petronas Towers are there in Koala Lumpur and they sum up a lot into the skyline.. they're not just two towers they're icons

well we are judging the skylines as a whole and most people are only looking at the petronas, i am trying to point out that they are not the skyline only a small peice. its like a nice nose on an ugly face.

and i would agree that shanghai and Toronto are highly overrated as well. chicago though? no chicago has a lot of fantastic architecture everywhere you look the willis towers is one of the worst examples of the beauty of chicagos architecture personally.
