Well, to be honest, i was just being polite, actually i didn't want to ask him the name of the city, what i wanted to ask him was the source for the picture, but unfortunately he and you guys don't seem to realise it.

Also to be honest you are very funny, how you are very clearly asking for the name of the city independent of anything else and denying it.

1- New York/ Shanghai

For me, the skyline of New York is the most elegant of the world and the skyline of Shanghai, the most impressive.

2- Chicago

Because... It's beautiful. It's very beautiful.

3- Sydney

The skyline of the buildings + Sydney Opera House + The bridge = Perfect place in architecture.


Honorable Mention:

Americas: Los Angeles, Seatle, Boston, San Francisco, Toronto, Vancouver, Montreal;

Europe: Paris (La Dèfense)

Asia: Tokyo, Hongkong, Dubai, Bangkok, Doha;

Oceania: Melbourne, Perth;

Africa: ... ... ...





PS: The 'La Defense' in Paris and San Francisco are more elegant than many impressive skylines around the world and, for me, deserve an honorable mention.

Personally I dont find any Asian skyline attractive, no matter how big they are.

@RaySthlm: No offense but i think it'll do good if you'd rather post a smaller photo with a clearer definition... we would appreciate your beautiful city more that way! coz i think it just doesn't work for bangkok especially the thread title itself is almost already claimed by obviously stiff competitors we all know!
