Actually, Singapore was there! It's just that other skylines have moved ahead of it.

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.
Its ok we view this based on our view of perception. What i meant about Kl twin tower that without the twin Tower it would look very dull as building around twin tower are grey in color mostly. Unlike shanghai or New york, even without iconic tower it will still look appealing.

Just wonder how u determine small skyline? I reckon singapore has more density and bigger skyline than KL

This is the dense Singapore that everyone doesn't know about..
and if they did.. they wouldn't like it at all..

better hide it.. IMO

Marina Bay is the poster boy of Singapore.. let's keep it like that for SG's benefit.

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.
Singapore without Marina Bay.... look below... even more dull...
Singapore's Skyline is limited to Marina Bay, that's all there is.. so for me it really doesn't match up to the World's best.. IMO

I think u dont get what I mean. The only thing I like from KL is only the Twin Tower. Without that two towers, the whole KL skyline will be a dull even the KLCC skyline. Marina Bay skyline without one or two towers wont be affected much.



and that dull skyline is the eastern part of Singapore which consist mainly old public housing. Here is the Orchard one

Without marina bay, Singapore would not be Singapore either. But we cant pretend its not there! Thats just ridiculous. And so as kuala lumpur......
Its like saying without your head, you wouldn't be who you are. But your head is there so you are who you are! Saying "without the twin towers, KL would be dull" doesn't make sense imo. thats all..

What I meant I am Only Impressed With Twin Tower not The Skyline.

Just like saying I like the face but I dont like the body so overall not impressed
