No worrries mate!

Don't really have to involve in decent counties like Brazil and India's Cities if you know how to use a smart programme called ADOBE PHOTOSHOP.

All you have to do is picking up the best photos of Metro Manila skylines. There is a Stretching command available to multiply the heights, it also provides you the Squeezing function to make up the density, and put them all together in one big joined sheet once you've finished the former two steps. Last but foremost, using the awesome Erasing tool to get rid of all those hopeless slums below...that would make it looks somehow polish enough to match some Tie 2 Chinese Cities.

Fancy more tips from learning PHOTOSHOP in order to face lift Manila? Mate, just ask don't be shy...

Indian cities will likely be the next skylines to grow into monsters both in height and density. Mumbai will come out of nowhere and into the top 10 over the next decade. Brazilian cities have the density, but they really haven't shown a penchant for going very tall. They're mostly made up of 50-150 m buildings.

Plus: the construction boom in the Gulf States (Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Kuwait City, Manama, Doha, Riyadh, Mecca, Jeddah) seems to be over more or less so far. Some projects are still getting built but not the same number like ~5 years ago and still in China. Personally I think only some of India's cities have the potential to become as impressive as some Chinese ones, but not on the same scale.

It's still too early to tell how India will develop. Almost all the skyscraper construction is focused on Mumbai, but that surely can't last. They're going to have to build offices and housing everywhere.

Thanks to hunser on SSP for digging these up. Once U/C in the photos wraps up, don't see any city competing.

I love Toronto too, my favourite Canadian skyline and my second favourite North American Skyline after NYC.

Indian and Brazilian cities don't have height although their sizes are very impressive...

I would say NYC or Tokyo are the only ones that could possibly compare to Chinese cities

It's would be very impressive to see the super mega-metropolis of Hong Kong, Shenzhen and Guangzhou combine as one. The world biggest city!

NYC takes the top spot for me due to it's blend of architectural styles, old and new.

If you have issues w/ Manila just look at it at an aerial perspective... Here if you want... Problem solved! Enough of your ranting... As clear as the noonday sun you can spot there including the hopeless slums...
