Shanghai has a more futuristic look, but Tokyo has more advanced technology.

Honestly I find HK's skyline more futuristic than Shanghai! Dubai's futurism is mostly it's skyline. But does the city have advanced technology and infrastructure compared to it's rivals in this poll?

ASIAN CITIES & REGIONS OF THE FUTURE 2005/06, December 12, 2005

Hong Kong earns the title of Asian city of the future with India and Australia picking up the regional honours. Courtney Fingar reports on who’s doing most to attract foreign direct investment.

ASIAN CITY*OF*THE FUTURE:

Winner: Hong Kong

A member of the elite group of truly world-class cities on a par with London, New York and Paris, Hong Kong continues to fend off pretenders to its Asian throne. While Sydney is stunning, Singapore is serene and Shanghai is sizzling, there is still only one Hong Kong. Its status of being Chinese, yet at the same time not entirely, allows it to benefit from China’s ascendance without being steamrollered by it.

This is, in turn, the unique advantage that Hong Kong provides to its foreign investors, and it is one not to be underestimated: come and get a piece of the Chinese action, the city says, but from a safe, stable, somewhat familiar base camp. It is an alluring pitch that will ensure Hong Kong’s spot near the top of the FDI league tables for many years to come.

On quality of life, Hong Kong is tough to beat, as the judges in fDi’s first ever Asian Cities & Regions of the Future competition concluded. But, as much fun as it is to play in this exotic, cosmopolitan city, it is primarily a place for doing business – and on that front there is also much to applaud.

In addition to its first place ranking in the quality of life category, the former British colony and now Chinese special administrative region also came top in transport, IT and telecommunications, and FDI potential. It came in second place, after Sydney, in human resources.

As a city, Dubai is pretty old! Even Marco Polo has set foot there. Dubai's skyline had been there since the 80s have has been building supertalls by the turn of the century. Same as Shanghai and to some extent, Hong Kong

Dubai looks like a vacation spot rather than futurisitic, Tokyo lost its steam, Seoul is promising but not too futurisitic enough. It goes down to Shanghai or Hongkong. In terms of developments, skyscrapers and economy, HK wins.

Seoul would be in the same league as Tokyo, HK and Shanghai

To me, Seoul > Shanghai except for skyline and development!

my vote goes to Tokyo

Yeah, Dubai shouldn't be getting so many votes.

People should base their choice on how the city is right now, not how it will be in a decade.

It's probably because there are so many developments happening in Dubai right now but their infrastructure is not as great as Tokyo or Hong Kong!
