Short buildings can also make a great skyline as well!

Hong Kong is truly amazing. It's the only city aside from NYC that I'd consider giving the #1 spot to.

Cant you see the ugly apartment buildings. cluster after cluster.

HK only looks close to NYC in the night because of overdone LED lighting.

Day time when real skyline is out in the open. HK struggle to match Shanghai.

Even HK mountains are more striking than its skyline in daytime.

Btw, the scenic, natural setting is terrific. One of the best if not the best 2nd only to Rio.

#2 Best skyline in the world only 2nd to NYC by far!

DUBAI earned this tag by being ultra-ambitious and stubborn in building "supertalls" and "megatalls"

It also has extreme variety in their crown and how they top off.

Not those boring chinese "glass" after "glass" tower after tower making a bland skyline.

I'm not a fan of Hong Kong's residential towers. With the recent growth spurt in NYC I'd put it solidly first.

Personally, I like Dubai's skyline very much but not enough to rank it in the top 5. There are other far more beautiful and diverse skylines in my opinion, like New York, Chicago, Shanghai, Hong Kong, etc.

FYI this is not taken at hk cbd, its in their neighbourhood Tsuen Wan and they also have a supertall tower.

To me HK is 2nd best after New York.

3rd I will put Shanghai followed by Chicago and Guangzhou


Remaining top 10
6. Singapore
7. Dubai
8. Shenzhen
9. Tokyo
10. KL
