Not for me. I think Chicago and Guangzhou are above Dubai. To me, the un-disputed top five in no particular order are:

Hong Kong
New York City
Chicago
Shanghai
Shenzhen

Yeah, sorry, Dubai should not be above Chicago or Shenzhen. Also, I'd say Kuala Lumpur should replace Bangkok on that last. Bangkok does have some interesting, quirky architecture, though.

Perhaps it was a little bit of an overstatement, but Chicago definitely has an advantage over any of those cities skyline wise. Perhaps they will catch up someday but as of now I just think Chi Town never gets its full recognition.

It's accurate in that it's a quantitative list. It's a list of the largest skylines in the world in order. 'Largest' and 'Best' isn't the same thing and why people's top 10 doesn't correspond to the top 10 largest. For me, 'Largest' is the most important component but there are at least 5 other things I take into consideration in forming a 'Top 10 Best'.
