I rather go with height + beautiful surroundings. That's the winning combination. Go HK!

Well he/she's got London in #7 so it's certainly not based on having lots of skyscrapers.

A photo of 300 red lanterns doesn't belongs in a 'World's Best Skyline' thread unless you're trying to make a case for that city above not having any skyline to speak of.
