The Petronas Towers look really cool against the sun, which actually looks like an atomic bomb to me.

I would like to know what people find so spectacular about Singapores skyline?! The only striking thing could be the hotel with that huge pool ontop. Other then that i donīt see anything landmarkish whatsoever in the skyline. Maybe someone can try to explain the love for that city.

MBS is a great landmark yes, and the others are pretty well designed, they look sleek and modern also they fit each other perfectly. I think Singapore's skyline is more an example of simply nice architecture than sheer magnitude, so while it doesn't really compete with the very best it's still remarkable and recognizeable.

In my opinion its not about the marina bay sands, in fact if u put the three tower with ship on top among the skyline it will look ugly. Thats why they placed it away from main skyline.

Singapore has three similar tallest building which i don't see any other skyline have this and despite no supertall, they still have nice density and futuristic look. The cbd is well clustered and glassy skyscrapers too.
