IMO Dubai is pushing the envelope on height etc however for me HK & NY are a cut above the rest.

Only Hong Kong, Shanghai can be recognized as the best skylines in China. The rest of Chinese skyscrapers are damn terrible.

I don't want to sound rude like you do by calling a stranger ignorant. (as i must maintain my dignity)

Your picture obviously proves that most of the skyscrapers are just condos and residential high rises.

Ok maybe not the best skyline in the world, but does it really qualify as "damn terrible"? Oh i mean you are not rude at all.

Im not from those cities there are tons of modern skyscrapers in both cities. Just look at the development seciton, see how many towers are from those cities.

Beijing's got fantastic skyscrapers.

Shezhen doesn't have fantastic skyscrapers - but it has the 'collective' thing going on (Bangkok style).

Guangzhou's got a few good skyscrapers etc.

You're massively wrong.

That's because European way of life is different from young countries like Canada, USA and developing countries like Asian countries.

The real global power is from Europe. History proved it.(i know this has nothing to do with world's best skylines)

And i think i need to mention this fact as well which is that the reason why European skylines suck is because they do not want to build these glass boxes/blocks in their cities/towns, it is not because they can't afford or don't have technology to build if you look at the world's most iconic and technologically most advanced buildings, most of them are designed and built by European architects and engineers. Shanghai, Tokyo, Dubai, Hong Kong and Singapore etc have ton of modern skyscrapers, when you do a little research into detail you will realise who is the real seller/inventer/designer and who is the customer/buyer.

1. NYC
2. Hong Kong
3. Shanghai
4. Chicago
5. Chongqing

Chongqing hasn't gotten much love only a little but not as much as it should. Now I wouldn't say it's the best in the world but it's a lot better than a lot of the sky lines that have been posted.
