I wonder if some people here are serious. Liverpool and Santiago look really good, and Santiago has a breathtaking Andes background. But this is about the WORLD'S BEST and no one can seriously say that cities like Liverpool or Santiago can even get close to Big Apple, Hong Kong or Shanghai, or...

This thread has really just become a "post your hometown--or any city" thread. Its a given that everyone is entitled to their opinion but its just become so ridiculous...Santiago? I really don't know about that one, Liverpool...the best?? In the world??? I'm sure a very small percentage of folks would agree. But the best? It really is a matter of opinion and I know that to be true but gee whiz some of it so obvious hometown boosting and disregard for the thread title in general. The quality of the pictures has even declined. This is the reason I don't throw in Chicago and NY images in here any longer. Because I know the page is just going to get flooded with a barage of monotonous Jakarta images.

Consider this thread irrelevant and hijacked.

I agree 100%. It is a pity. I simply love such threads as a compilation of high-quality megaskyline photos and instead you get pictures of midrise neighbourhoods and nice cities which may be the best in their country/region but on a global scale would not even be considered if you asked a person on the street to say spontaneously which are the best skylines...

I would enjoy seeing some of those lesser mentioned that are obvious candidates and incredible in their own right regardless of the popular vote which is usually Hong Kong, NY, Shanghai, Chicago, and Dubai.
I mean places like Toronto, Singapore, Sydney, Los Angeles, Paris, etc., etc.. I was on a roll with Toronto but I got lazy.

at night HK looks really cool, but at day, when you can see all the commieblocks....mhhh i don't know.....i even can't decide which skyline i would give my vote, since many worldclass skylines are the best for their own. I mean NYC has the density, Chicago has a very clean and structured skyline.....Shanghai and Dubai have both a sci-fi-like skyline, while the known parts of HK have a good backdrop with the hills behind the towers...it's really hard to decide

Of course not I think Hong Kong is one of the greatest skylines on the planet and deserves to be arguably the best in anyones book.

And with all that said I think its time to make a comeback to the thread...To be continued...

My favs still continue Shanghai, NYC, Chicago and Hong Kong. I think Dubai didn't do itself a fvour with the Burj Dubai. It makes all other tall buildings look tiny! And there is nothing like a stair effect with some towers that do half the way up between the average skyline height and Burj Dubai...

Paris is my favourite in the EU and along with Moscow the best in Europe.

Paris is just so......sexy. Really there is no other way of putting it for me. To sum up the urban landscape of Paris; oh so sexy.
