Very linear skyline. Has a few beautiful towers, but the gaudy outnumbers them. 7.5/10

Dubai deserves nothing less than a 10. This is an amazing skyline! However, it lacks the density of some other cities.

This. very well said.

It took me 10 yrs to come around and appreciating what Dubai has done in turbulent middle east.

It is in a truest sense an "oasis in the desert." Nice variety, very diverse. None of those boring extremely glassy chinese skyline nor boring apartment buildings of HK.

Also, no unnncessary HK like nightly neon lighting show completely masking natural beauty in the background!

Dubai is only 2nd to NYC in skyline. Its got everything now in a skyline after Burj Dubai topped off .

Skyline looks amazing at night. Height of skyline extremely impressive & most towers have interesting design. Apart from being too linear over-all a great skyline.

2nd Best Skyline int he world after NYC imo.

Dubai is a definition of how a "modern" skyline should be built.

It has everything. different crowns on top. colors. variation and most importantly cluster.

After NYC, Dubai is the best.
