You can add Shanghai, Dubai, Singapore, Tokyo and few other cities to this list . Now HK is the best, IMHO but all others are quite amazing as well .

Shanghai is a coastal city but its skyline is not on a coastal waterfront.

Shanghai is actually a river city. No major development or urban core fronts the sea. The swath of Pudong facing the sea is pretty much empty besides the airport.

Yeah... origins of Shanghai weren't on the sea but it grew so big that it reached the ocean area.

Isn't that the same with London or Sydney?

London is a river city, Sydney isn't. It's located on the Sydney Harbour, not the Parramatta River (which ends further upstream)
