I think Bangkok's skyline is alright, but thai users are spamming it. Do you really think Bangkok's skyline is the best in the world? It truly is getting annoying. One could survive without seeing it in every page. (-_-)#

Things are better than they were before. The mods are on top of the situation.

Yes, very hard to find this kind of pic in clear weather from the angle taken from Batam Indonesia.

Pic is quite old. Now we could see a few skyscrapers on the rise

yes unfortunately sao paulo even though have the density but they dont have a recognisable skyline unllike hk or shanghai which can be easily recognise instantly.

what i meant with quality is the building height. Sao Paulo all skyscrapers almost had same height which doesnt excite me unlike hk

And they aren't very tall either. If they were all over 150 mm with a few 200 meter buildings, it wouldn't be so bad.

Would love to see some signature building in sao paulo like willis tower, bank of china hk, etc

Maybe a 250m building would be enough for the skyline

Willis Tower or Bank of China would absolutely dwarf everything in Sao Paulo. It would look quite awkward imo.

Thats why height shouldnt be more than 250m to create ideal height for sao paulo skyline.


Any idea whether sao paulo has height restriction like singapore's 280m height?

Well, even 250 meters is much. You've just got used to supertalls and megatalls.

Yes, in Sao Paulo, a 250-meter building would still be twice as tall as most of the buildings there. It would need a smattering of 200-meter buildings to go with it.
