I like how Toronto has these dense clusters scattered around metro. Some are a lot further along than others. The one in the foreground is North York which used to be its own city but now part of the City of Toronto. Do you have a similar one of Singapore taken from the north looking south to downtown? Or maybe even taken from Malaysia?
sorry.. repost an old pictures from KL

I found this pic. Its taken from Johor Bahru (Malaysia). There should be clearer views in future as more highrises are completed in Johor Bahru

Nothing comes close to New York, in my opinion. It has over a hundred years of skyscraper history that no one else can match, and so many unique buildings.

The resemblance is striking. And to think Liuzhou with such a skyline and development scale is not even among the 25 largest cities in China!
