Stadiums aren't skyline and please upload better quality photos not pixelated ones.. every skyline has good angle and bad angle, it doesn't mean much to participate in this thread if you would post any photo you like ignoring the topic of "best skyline". So show the best of KL and stay relevant to the topic please. This is not ASEAN thread.

Yeah...keep the photos you guys post of 'high quality' or whatever just to make the thread feel less repetitive and more ostentatious even at the expense of fewer images. (If you can)

Kuala lumpur looks nice to me but it doesn't mean that any differing opinion on the matter is tbc taboo (even the kinda mean ones or the outright nonchalant replies), opinions are fiiiine,It doesn't necessarily mean they're always right tho.So detest not and make a cool stance about it if you're able to.

WingWing 's Singapore photos are my favourites in this list, the citystate is very photogenic might I add.

Yah agree

But KL has high chance to overtake Singapore, they got many supertalls u/c. I reckon in 5 years time KL skyline will dramatically change. BKK also has possibilities to break through one of theworld's best. Jakarta and Manila also has the potential

In terms of density and depth, Makati should actually be way up there for ASEAN. Bangkok is quite scattered although they probably has the widest skyline.

Of the Southeast Asian skylines:

I like Kuala Lumpur the best. I really like the Petronas towers and they seem to be adequately situated in a skyscraper cluster.

Manila and Makati also have nice, tight clusters (with some modern and older buildings mixed in) so they are high on my Southeast Asia list.

Singapore's skyline, as a whole, has never attracted me to be honest. It's mostly scattered it seems. I do like the main cluster, but it's rather small. If they could build a signature tower much taller than the rest in the main cluster, it would rise a bit in my list.

Bangkok's skyline is just too spread out and scattered for me, I don't really feel anything when I see it. But it seems like it can rapidly become the best once it fills in some more (and they're building quite a lot), so this is changing very quickly.

I like HKs skyline for itīs urban and futuristic appeal and its natural background.

I like Shanghai for itīs setting, for the composition of the SWFC, Jin Mao and Shanghai Tower.

I like Tokyo for its uber crazy density, urban sprawl, overall appeal and many faces it has.

Shenzhen looks way too chaotic, unpleasant and mundane.

Guangzhou only looks good around the CFT and up to the stadium. Other than that itīs just another chinese skyline.

Petronas Tower was a very famous twin tower in the world because PTT was the first ever tower that beat a giant super power : WTC in NYC

but, yes, Kualalumpur, Jakarta, Manila, Bangkok have a big chance to be the next world class cities form Asia
The Petronas Tower have beaten the Willis (Sears) Tower, that eclipsed the WTC shorty after their opening. But the surpassing was more or less done by cheating a lot. The true master in surpassing isnīt even Taipei 101 but the Burj Khalifa.

Taipeis mass damper basically sits at the roof height of Willis, the actual roof is only a few meters above that damper, while the remaining height is done by a spire.

I think Petronas tower steal the limelight and becomes the main point of the skyline. Its very iconic but night view, its bright lighting makes the skyline focus on the twin tower instead
