Not anymore awkward than Taipei 101, but you're right.

that is really sort of a question. Moscow is a developed city but if we are to talk about skyline, its not even at par with ASEAN's... IMO

Well, you are not right either. Sure, it is far below Shanghai, HK, Seoul, Shenzhen etc, but not all ASEAN.

Moscow is huge, it is 50 km of built-up area from the North to the South and some 30 km from the West to the East.

Here are some pics of mine showing how huge the city is. Taken from the height of 337 meters,so you can imagine why everything is far below. But on average Moscow is far beyond everything en Europe and close to many megapolises of South-East Asia.




















April 2012.

And this is not mine, but I love this angle:

As I've already said, skyline is not shaped by Moscow City IBD but the whole built-up area.

Oh I see... it looks nice but still relatively not the best to be at no 2. I agree with @wino. The only photo thats convincing is the last one.

Too much low-rise stuff without enough high-rises.

I can understand you. That happens because my shots were taken, I repeat, from the height of 337 meters, while the last one is taken from the height of around 100 m, so it does show much better angle.

There are in general more than 100 buildings over 100 m in Moscow, the majority of all buildings, regardless historic center, I think are 12 - 20 storey ones.

Of course, it is not Shanghai, or HK, but it is much higher and denser and larger than any European city.

And I don't think in terms of skyline Moscow is worse than, say, Qindao or Dalian.

Then, many people say Tokyo skyline is one of the best. I love Tokyo and i dream a lot to see it in person but I don't think its skyline is much better than that of Moscow. Tokyo is mostly low-rise megacity and its low-rises are generally much lower than that of Moscow.

BKK has more beautiful skyscrapers compared to Tokyo?? hmmmm....
that is very much debatable..


what BKK has advantage over Tokyo for sure is Height.. but other than that... hard to say..
Tokyo wins with impression... easy to understand why.

I've always though of BKK as the smaller version of Tokyo..

For me the reason why Tokyo isn't that great is simply because it is so big and spread out, that makes it much better at street level/living though so there's many "centers" around train stations instead of just one clustered district. It makes for a bad skyline but for good urbanity.
