I'm proud
The largest city in Southeast Asia is Jakarta, world's 2nd most populated metropolitan area... not Bangkok, Bangkok only host the largest skyline.

Either way. There are many large cities in SEA. But these two are largest cities of SEA. The largest city is Jakarta in population and size. It's just a case of semantics.

Shanghai is no where close in my opinion for best skyline, even if you narrow it down to just Asia. Bangkok takes the cake.

new york new york new york
if we are talking about "high" skylines (with towers)

i dont think any eastern asian city can come close , or the ones in the middle east

most of them are new, fresh off the block lego bits that have been planted there over rather shorter amounts of time, its too planned, it has not natural or organic feel like new york or other western cities have

new york is like a massive maze with layers of towers from different eras, it has a darka and somewhat mystical feel compared to cities in the far east and thats something nothing can beat in my opinion
new york IS the original modern skyscraper skyline

its like comparing an ancient forest to a new park built in a residential town

And don't forget the U/C Shanghai White Magnolia Plaza at 319m.

I'd assume he's a quite inward looking yankee who has absolutely no idea what's going on outside U.S. these days.

Also have a look at his joining date, he's a newbie here. After spending some more time in SSC, i don't think he will make that harsh conclusion again.

I think they're encouraging people to limit posts to 5 photos.
