I would say

1. Tokyo (including Yokohama)
2. Seoul (Very underestimated city)
3. Hong Kong
4. Osaka (Including Kobe)
5. Singapore

The list may seem biased, but that's natural because I have extensively travelled Asia. Outside of that I am only familiar with Paris and American cities (though I would say west coast US cities are most futuristic in US), which I would not rate them above the cities in my list. I think Shanghai looks futuristic but it's not really, though, that's changing fast as wages etc rise.

Check out my driving videos in Japan (mostly tokyo) in my signature

Leaving aside the Octopus Card, probably the greatest thing about Hong Kong. Walkways - gazillions of them. Especially in Hong Kong summers.

If you work in areas like Central or Admiralty, or some areas of Causeway Bay and Tsim Sha Tsui, being able to leave home, get to work, and get back home without ever really being 'outside' is bloody brilliant - weird as it may sound.

I'd say Tokyo first, Seoul second.
I don't think Dubai or Shanghai are 'futuristic' cities..they have a very modern side, but also a lot of less developed sides.

yea, HK is in the top for sure, but still after Tokyo and Seoul in my opinion.
HK is one of the coolest cities on earth and very modern, but not the most futuristic i think..

I imagine the cities of the future not just as high-technologic, but also with a very modern design, maybe minimalistic design. Without the classical sea of skyscrapers, with losts of open spaces and green spaces. And of course also quite ecologic.

Don't know if it fits that description, but the first city that comes in my mind when i hear the word ''futuristic'' is Brasilia, the capital of Brazil.
