Lol guys I'm originally from Vienna! So I know a thing or two about great Architecture. But this thread is about world's best skylines and European cities simply can't compete here, at least imo.

Yeah I forgot about Tokyo, it should definitely be in the top 10. And Melbourne I don't know... I have to check it out.

Sydney certainly has a far higher profile around the world than Melbourne and benefits from a spectacular setting and famous landmarks like the Opera House and Harbour Bridge. Melbourne seems to get over looked but has the bigger (and I consider better) skyline.

Good thing I live in a Canadian city then. I get history AND skyscrapers.

Joking aside, I'm from the London originally so very familiar with building restrictions there. That said, it doesn't change the fact that European skylines are puny. I think London, Istanbul, and Moscow have the potential to develop big skylines but it will take a long time and they will likely never attain the type of skyscraper density of a Chicago or Toronto.

Epic Aerial Photos of Shanghai by radics.geza from flickr

NOTES:

Xujiahui / 徐家汇 (further down the lower left corner),
Changning's Business Districts (Zhongshan Park/ 中山公园 and Hongqiao / 虹桥 on yr further left-hand-side),
Huamu and Century Park/ 花木及世纪公园 ( East of Lujiazui in Pudong on yr further right-hand-side) Clusters are absent from both of the the photos unfortunately.
......
nevertheless they give you the impression how big Shanghai's city proper is.

Honestly, I think Hong Kong, New York, Shanghai, and Chicago are all excellent contenders for world's greatest skyline. I can never criticize any of those four because they all have somthing unique about them, and they're huge! It's just when people start listing smaller skylines in their region or country that I'll criticize it.
