i agree... in terms of highrise designs Jakarta should be one of the best in Asia... although unfortunately the skyline is rather spread...

is it...? aside from Baiyoke Skytower, then Jakarta's tallest in Wisma BNI 46 at 262 m whereas in Bangkok i believe it's 240m... i forgot which building thoungh...

no disrespect intended though... Bangkok's skyline is much denser than Jakarta but in terms of highrise designs personally I say Jakarta is ahead...

@oweeyman: wow really love that new Regatta U/C. after the Ancol Mansion finished construction we would have a nice skyline emerging as well in the Jakarta waterfront...

NB: but of course in terms of world's best skyline Jakarta still has a very very long way to go...

thank you...

==========================================================

i say Hong Kong for the #1 world skyline... just love the density of its skyscrapers (of course design of skyscrapers are superb as well) and the natural background hills that blend well...

Jakarta is not as good as bangkok and manila in terms of the density of skyline. and far behind singapore and kuala lumpur but definitely better than hanoi.

In these cities, such housing is the norm. As such, they are true skyscraper cities. A skyscraper isn't just something that you put in an isolated area for show... for HK and Shanghai they're where people live, work and play. There are no sprawling cookie cutter mansions that you'll find in North America or Europe at least for several kilometres in any direction. Also, consider the scale. While there is a large number of residential highrises, there is also a huge number of commercial buildings -- even more than most cities in North America or Europe.

In terms of density, I agree, Jakarta's skyline is spread out over the city... And its skyline is linear, not conglomerated

yep i agree in terms of density... but if the photographer can find a good angle to shoot the Jakarta skyline then it will look dense as well though... but in terms of individual highrise design then Jakarta would be on one of the top in the Southeast Asia skyline...

======================================================================================================

and for second best world skyline I'd pick New York... the density is just wow... and there are very good variety of buildings as well over there...
