DISCUSS: Unknown Skylines

Hi my friends! I think we all agree that when it comes to skylines, most of us here on SSC are well-educated connoisseurs. However, every once in a while I see a skyline that leaves me puzzled because I have no idea of what city it belongs to. I have been surprised in many cases as I have discovered skylines and cities that I did not know exist.

So I have created this thread to showcase and discuss pictures of skylines that we have no idea where they are located. I usually come upon a few of these as I browse through pictures online to share here on SSC.

I'll start with this one. I have no idea where this skyline is located. Either it is not a well known city or it is just a rare angle. Any ideas?

That is Essen, but I'm sure you know that already.

I did not know that was Essen. Quite an unknown skyline if you ask me!

Thank you Hudson. It's quite built up for a suburb! Seattle-Bellevue must be like an Atlanta-Buckhead situation for what I gather then.

Faisal Shourov, the skyline on your picture is Dhaka.

JuanPaulo => Your picture from the 1st April is certainly in Canada, I think in Toronto or Mississauga.
