Tokyo is by far the most futuristic city in the world, IMO....

Although Hong Kong is a lovely city especially when seen from distance, you only need to look closer to notice how many crap buildings they have, like this one

The city is infested of buildings like those!

I love Tokio but its architecture is too bland to call it futuristic. The airport and metro system showing signs of age as well. Hong Kong has indeed many ugly concrete buildings but its airport, overall infrastructure and iconic skyscrapers make it the most futuristic city for me.

What I love in Asian cities is that if you take the metro all people seem to be fiddiling around with a PSP, DS, Iphone, blackberry etc.

Given that this is "most futuristic city" and not "most futuristic skyline", I'd choose Tokyo.

Large motorways is not futuristic at all. Future cities will be more pedestrinal-friendly.
