New York/Hong Kong/Chicago/Dubai...Singapore is one of the world's best skyline.
Well, one Bangkok spammer has been banned once again. I have to be careful because I've been cautioned before about being a little too ban-happy.

Manila????

I've backread pages 500-517 and only saw 3 pictures of Manila.. and I doubt ill see more if I continue backreading....

Is that spamming???

Ive seen "hundreds" of pictures of London in this thread but it was never spamming....


Although I agree BKK and Manila doesnt belong in this thread... yet

Some Thai forumers do make Bangkok look bad but IMO both Bangkok and Manila do belong in this thread. Unless it is emphasized and we arrive on a consensus that what should be included here are only the Top 5 Worlds Best Skyline.

I do feel like I've been hit over the head with Bangkok photos, but have no issue with either Bangkok or Manila being in this thread. Top 5 is far too restrictive imo and then we get into the question of which skylines belong in a top 5. There doesn't seem to be a consensus on that.

Guangzhou, Singapore, Toronto, Chongqing, Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur, Shanghai, Dubai, Chicago, Shenzhen, New York, Bangkok, Manila, Jakarta, Tokyo, Panama City, and Seoul are all fine with me.

One of the other skylines that (in my opinion) should be here is the Los Angeles one. Surrounded by big open spaces and typical american suburbes. Quick video of the city:

I like the Los Angeles skyline quite a bit, but it's too small to be included imo. According to this quantitative measure, it's only the 40th largest skyline in the world: http://tudl0867.home.xs4all.nl/skylines.html

I agree. I would only consider skylines from the top 20 of that list to be able to vie for World's Best Skyline. I mean you do require a certain degree if quantity.

Thanks for banning the Bangkok trolls, they're a bunch of ignorant, annoying people who try to seek attention, nothing more. I find it interesting that none of the Bangkok trolls have even responded to our criticism. They don't understand english or they're that much ignorant?

QC to host half km-high tower

QUEZON City Mayor Herbert Bautista has given Mitsubishi Electric Corp. the go-signal to start putting up its 612-meter tower in a seven-hectare lot on the former site of the Manila Seedling Bank Foundation along Quezon Avenue.

sorry to poop on the parade..

even if that happens.. it's way too far from the current skyline... it will have very little effect on the view..

You have to downsize the picture.



Start spreading the neeeewsss..

I wish I could find a picture with the Statue of Liberty and the completed WTC but can't seem to find one strangely enough. Oh well, I think NYC has the best sky line from this angle!
