Petronas twin tower is the most beautiful twin tower in this earth i ever seen.

As i personally visit the towers, it shines due to the chrome and aluminum facade, and at night it lit the brightest light in KL. Proud for Malaysian to own these two expensive and beautiful tower!

For what i know this tower completed during financial crisis so construction cost become super expensive and one of the towers started later but somehow both end up almost same time. Funnily both towers constructed by different developer

thats right, they were constructed by different contractors. AFAIK they had to rush constructions for some reasons.perhaps they were on a race thus faintly discerning the tilt of one of the towers. It was then later on corrected so no worries. Constructing this landmark almost cost Malaysia everything that time...

yes it cost an arm and a leg to. Malaysia. Luckily they never stopped the construction but instead speed up. I remember the two construction companies are from Korea and Japan so its about pride in which completing the tower first.

This landmark tower make us easily recognise KL skyline as from any angle u take, u will get to see the petronas twin tower and this is the reason why KL deserve top 10 place spot. Other than Singapore, KL is the best candidate to represent ASEAN skyline in the world

Toronto, Canada


Jason Van Bruggen

Neither has Toronto the biggest nor the grandest skyline. However, it's definitely one of the cleanest and greenest cities in the world

Toronto's no slouch in those first 2 categories either. It's not in the same category as New York, Hong Kong, or Shanghai, but it's definitely in the next group down.

Hong Kong is the LA of Blade Runner, without chimney and flying cars (for now).

The movie is set in 2019, and L.A. won't even come close to Blade Runner by then, but several other cities will at this rate.

Shenzhen, Guangzhou, and Hong Kong are the best candidates! Maybe Shanghai too.
