Yeah I think out of all the cities in South Asia, Mumbai is the only one with a skyline.

The tallest building in Mumbai is 65 stories tall. The tallest building in every other South Asian city is around 20-30 stories tall. Other South Asian cities are all low-rise spread out metropolitan areas.

MUMBAI:

Mumbai is really dissapointing, for such a big and important city in one of the Worlds major economies is depressing. The buildings are dull and boring. I think that the big cities of Brazil, Russia and China (the other BRIC´s) have much better skylines than Mumbai.

Deffinately Colombo is more impressive, not only because the architecture and arrangement of buildings but becuase its a much smaller city.

Colombo skyline’s high-rises can be counted on one finger. Mumbai is a much much bigger city and its new skyline – in contrary to the old one which consists of only concrete buildings - has started rising only from the past few years. It will take few more years for us to see the result of the construction boom which is going on right now.

Mumbai

Not much point in this thread. Anyone knows Mumbai has the best one. Even though it very unorganised. Though I don't think at any point of time anyone was planning a skyline.

Mumbai is the biggest city, so yes mumbai

But in all seriousness i dont find any of the skylines here really good, most countries in africa have better skylines

Though i really do love Islamabad as a city, one of the most beautiful cities i had visited once.
