Not meant seriously. It's just a perfect picture of one the best skylines in Europe.

To be Frank, I don't think Singapore belongs here.. It's a baby compared to the other best here.
KL for me is South East Asia's better representative..

I agree Singapore is really overrated... the skyline is nice but even here in North America it wouldn't really be in the top 5 size and height or even design wise.

I disagree Jay. If Singapore was in North America, it will definitely be in the top 5. In fact, it may rank third or fourth depending on whether you think it beats Toronto or not. What happens is that most people focus on the CDB skyline and they forget the endless ocean of residential skyscrapers that flood the island outside of the CDB.

If Singapore is in North America, this would be my ranking:

1. New York City
2. Chicago
3. Panama City
4. Singapore
5. Miami

Toronto, Philadelphia, Seattle and Atlanta have better skylines than Singapore. Singapore has a great skyline, probably second to Kuala Lumpur in Southeast Asia, but not in a global stage..

Ranking compared to Toronto, I agree. However, In my book, Singapore has a much better skyline than Philadelphia, Seattle, and Atlanta. It is close to Philadelphia's and Seattle's [speaking of CBD only] but far away from Atlanta's. Singapore is far much more than the CBD - which as we already know, boasts excellent height, superb architectural quality, and fantastic density.

How can it be baby? I see singapore CBD as big as KL.

Even though singapore size is small but it has top 10 in most skyscrapers and highrises as well. KL without twin tower would be very dull.

The CBD alone comparison I dont think Singapore lacking anything except supertall. Moreover singapore has 3 main CBD. The normal CBd we look are the Marina Bay and Shenton Way. The Orchard CBD hardly taken in picture.

But in this picture u can see partial of orchard district

Apology but I find the highlighted words a lame excuse or justification. If that is the case, would it also be safe to say that without those supertalls or icons in new york or shanghai, the former and the latter wouldnt be among the world's best? Or without those architecturally pleasing structures in Singapore, Singapore wouldn't even be called Singapore?! Lol , we cant just pretend those supertalls did not exist! Its there and it will ever be there. Although I love the skyline of Singapore, I too wouldn't put it among the best as well. Its too small. I guess the biggest criterion of the race is the monumental size of a city and clearly, Singapore does not belong there (yet). This is my own conceit.
