Not many are talking about cities like Shenzen or Shanghai........these two are right at the top along with HK and NYC.

Shenzhen is actually a very small city (from a Chinese perspective). It has a lot of skyscrapers, but Shanghai has far more.

Actually, Vancouver's residentials look very glassy, just like commercial buildings. It's not just the north side that is glassy. The south side facing False Creek is glassy as well.

Shanghai I will certainly agree with, Shenzhen's architecture is not quite as good. Lotta new stuff and spread out chaotically. I wouldn't call it an aesthetically pleasing and well organized skyline like Hong Kong. I wouldn't call it on it's older architecture ( Fairly new city) with Shanghai's bund beauties. I don't think too many people outside of Shenzhen feel it is on top with Hk and NY. Shanghai I will vouch for though. It's coming in ontop like a bull.

I respectfully disagree with ranking Vancouver so highly. Although it's dense and extensive, it's also relatively short and has few buildings of any architectural significance. Vancouver suffers from architectural monoculture with all of those glassy residentials repeated ad infinitum. These criticisms aside, I still think it's a beautiful skyline, just not number 1 material.

I'm sure most people have heard the term "Hongcouver," however for those who haven't, it's a term used to describe the massive amounts of immigrants from Hong Kong in Vancouver...
With all of these Hong Kong immigrants come buildings with a Hong Kong flavour, which is why I find Vancouver's skyline so attractive, set in front of the picturesque mountains...It's no secret that Vancouver is the first place immigrants from Asia come to; the mountains give them an "Asian vibe" I guess you could say.
I also think Calgary's skyline is amazing for the amount of people it actually has...Calgary would win the award for the highest "people:building" ratio.

Makati's skyline is very impressive but certainly not the best

Vancouver's setting is quite dramatic. Calgary also has a mountain backdrop, but too bad it doesn't have a huge body of water.

Natural surroundings is a very important complement to a lot of buildings!
