This is because one country two system, HK on own system while the other big cities followed the other system.

And what I see here HK being given a choice to represent themselves by the Central govt. Having own flag, own athletes, etc to represent themselves to the world under China.

And for my goodness sake u love to use exclamation marks!
Shameful you talking about these here. Just do what you said!

Or you mean the top 5? Mexico City has many skyscrapers under construction, and 3 other projects are +300 m. Also USA not have the problem of earthquakes as Mexico City or Tokyo, watch this video happened yesterday, all our buildings have technology anti-seismic...
I know that site well. It's better described as the 'Biggest Skylines' in the world. 'Best' would take into account qualitative measures such as quality, layering, architecture, and layout in addition to what is measured in that list. Btw, you forgot Panama City (9,088) in 4th spot. Mexico City has the 9th biggest skyline in north America, but taking into account some of these other factors I'd rank it a little lower.

I'm not sure that having seismic problems is as huge of an issue considering Tokyo (23,821) has the 5th biggest skyline in the world.

Try putting more than one picture on a post. What I do is copy them into an email that I'm not going to send anywhere. Then, I cut and paste into the thread.

Does South Korea have a domestic baseball league like Japan, Canada, and the US? What about the main stadium? Is it used by a soccer team?
