I see Hk character in Shenzhen, the density and the sea reminds me of HK skyline from the Peak.

Its nice to see Shenzhen getting huge and potentially world best skyline in the future.


Another city to watch actually is KL, they are developing tons of development and including few supertalls, so we can see KL in the top 5 soon.


For singapore, need to step out of the top 10 soon []


Heres my list currently

1. HK
1. New York
3. Shanghai
4. Chicago
4. Shenzhen
4. Dubai
7. KL
7. Singapore
7. Toronto
10. can be either guangzhou or bkk

I wouldn't put Guangzhou on the same league as BKK . As of now, Guangzhou is on par, or maybe even better, than Shenzhen imo

to me guangzhou skyline isnt impressive as Shenzhen as they rather lack in density and the financial CBD of guangzhou look has too many gap in between due to large park in between. I would still put guangzhou in top 10 but in the later part.

The thing anyone should consider is whenever a post is put on Skyscrapercity the world sees it in a wave as time moves across the planet...so anything will show input from a longitudinal aspect moving westward...if any of that makes sense...For me...Melbourne rates worlds best in anything..really..but keep it quiet as lots are moving here and...

Vancouver is the worlds best Skyline. Been to NYC and HK and I still will always be a homer for Vancouver.

Seems some people on this forum have no clue what skyline means, they regard the term synonymous with quality of living

It's far enough away that most of the buildings are beyond the horizon. So they are hidden by the curve of the earth's surface.

To put things into perspective, that tall white building with the BMO logo on the top is almost a 1km from the lake; 800m to be precise.
