I would have to say Australian Skylines are far the best. Whether it be in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane or Perth they all are amazing.

HK and NYC have the world's best skyline.

Then Chicago, Shanghai, Tokyo, Singapore, etc.

I also like Dubai's skyline too.

Why do people like Dubai? It's stupid. It's just some extremely tall buildings lining one main street. That's not impressive at all. Now, if there were 5 streets like that, it would be impressive. Maybe in 15-20 years Dubai can be amazing, but right now, there's just no density. I mean, I'm someone that enjoys density more than height, so others may enjoy height more than desnity. But, whatever.

Yes i agree. It has stunning buildings, but i hate the fact that there plonked alongside one strip of road. NY has the best skyline, even though its getting old, no other city can compare to New Yorks Skyline.

The view from Renmin Square towards Pudong is quite good - you get to see a huge expanse of buildings all densely packed together on both sides of the river, then also the rest of the skyscrapers in Puxi.

Well, the buildings in Lijiang are much much older. It's actually an ancient city.

Hmmm, dare I say Abu Dhabi or Singapore?

Abu Dhabi may not be the highest, but it fits together very well, and vey well lit, with well placed green... I find it the most pleasant skyline viewed from the sea...
Singapore has a smaller business district but also fits together well and the smaller buildings on the seafront provide a beautiful contrast.


Most stunning of all skylines has to be the original skyscrapercity. Shibam, Yemen. Dense, beautiful background, even a protective wall... now which sky scraper city can claim that?

Absolutely stunning picture in today's South China Morning Post showing the fireworks over Brooklyn Bridge. Anyone got any shots?

Shanghai would look really sick when Shanghai centre gets built, I mean the Pudong area.
