"I think many USA and Chinese cities are underrated. Here is the overrated one: Singapore."

The last time I heard, Singapore is a Chinese city-state.

China is amazing but definitely not underrated in a skyscraper sense.

The USA is though I think.

Most people don't even know the names of Chinese cities except for Shanghai, Hong Kong and Beijing. Only a few people who visit skyscrapercity know of some chinese cities. Chinese skylines are not only underrate, their cities as whole are nonexistent in knowledge to billions of people outside east asia

perhaps because those cities were not what they are today and their momentous changes took only a heart beat. Even I before ssc, did not know of their existence and they're not just cities but big growing by leaps and bounds cities.

I agree, but I was saying that in a skyscraper sense, on this board at least, China is not really underrated. We all know the cities are huge and there are lots of crazy high buildings, it's the number 1 skyscraper country in the world.

I would say either USA or UAE would be number 2 but I feel like the US is still underrated, maybe because it's less in your face than the other two countries.

I agree to what they say.
It is difficult for Asia to find the top 10. Since many skylines are incredibly great.

I have already changed it.

You should replace Bangkok with Doha imo. Bangkok has no iconic buildings where Doha has plenty. Plus Doha has sea in front of the CBD as foreground which is convenient for skyline photoshooting, where all Bangkok photos are random shots taken from hotels or apartments
