I just want to mention that I think the Guangzhou skyline is probably the most underrated on this entire website. Depending on my mood I rank it as high as 5th in the world. I think that for now it's better than Shenzhen, and is probably a couple years away from having the world's best concentrated supertall cluster.

None of those pics highlight the main part of the skyline. Somebody needs to post some pics of the Supertall area. It is ridiculous and about to double in size in the next couple of years.

This is an old pic to show it a bit. (must be almost a year old) The tall tower to the right is taller than the CN tower, and the tallest building is the same height as the Willis Tower in Chicago. 4 supertalls are visible in this picture, and the 5th is in Oliver's last pic. Many more are currently U/C.

Eh, HK is still my number #1. TBH, I think Shanghai takes my #2 now, and NY on #3. NY is still awesome, but I feel that people overhype it greatly.

Hmm... I say walk those 3 cities... New York has SO much more to offer architecture-wise...

Being tall just so your skyline looks good from 5km at dusk does not a great skyline necessarily make...

Architecture wise, maybe, but in terms of scale and height....I don't know, it's just a matter of personal taste.
