I sometimes think Shanghai has surpassed Hong Kong in terms of skyline. Then pictures like this show up. Hong Kong is still king in my books.

Hong Kong has those breathtaking, lush green hills so close to the supertalls. There's no setting like that in the world (even Rio doesn't compare in my view). I just wish they hadn't visually polluted the hills with random houses here and there.

Despite my preference for north American skylines, I'd put Shanghai ahead of Chicago as well.

I think Vancouver's setting matches those 2, but those west coasters seem so mesmerized by the mountains that they forgot to build an equally impressive skyline.

I would too but not by a whole lot... If Chicago builds it's new supertall projects I think it will be back even with Shanghai... but in 5 years NY will put both of them in the dust in terms of 350-400+ meter buildings.
