Ok thanks. Btw, Surabaya has to be one of the largest cities few in the West have ever heard of. I knew it was in Indonesia, but that's about it. I'm googling it.

And it says Surabaya has a daily high between 30.1C and 33.4C so summer every day. I guess that's to be expected when you're on the equator.

Yes, we're off topic. Singapore has a legitimate world's best skyline. Do you see skyscraper construction picking up over the next 5 years?

I know this isn't all of the Bangkok skyline, but it is absolutely the best picture of any part of Bangkok I've ever seen.

Bangkok is amazing, it just needs several supertalls to make its skyline outstanding to be among the top ones!
