I reckon Shanghai, not just because of its sea of skyscrapers, but also because of its variety of architecture. Its an art gallery of skyscrapers!

Rising West Kowloon from Lei Yue Mun



And again, with North Point in the picture



Full Pano from Lei Yue Mun - with my favourite building, One Island East, looking splendid.
>>>SCROLL>>>



Not the most photographed skyline in Hong Kong, but I like it all the same. I think Kowloon Bay suffers from having buildings that are all almost exactly the same height - a little variety and one or two taller buildings would make it a brilliant skyline.

Even when you eliminate the HK island side of victoria harbor, Hong Kong still looks dramatic and fantastic. Nice finds.

Hongkong has best skyline.

New York's skyline is unique as I know it's history, but by just looking at it I'm not too impressed.

Chicago is pretty nice.

Shanghai has a nice one too now.

Dubai should fill up it's empty gaps a bit more. It's just a street of tall building, with a field right next to them. The buildings look a waste of money like that.

100% tax on automobiles. Ridiculous prices on gasoline. One of the most efficient transit systems. One of the highest rated airports in the world. Out of all of the cities I've visited, still nothing compares to the overall level of quality in public transit.
