The trouble with the dubai skyline is that the new really tall building makes the other buidlings around it look tiny. Personally i think its turned dubais skyline from nice looking to rather bland.

Not to mention oil only makes up something like 5% of their GDP.

It has 82 buildings over 600 ft! Atlanta only has 11 over 600 ft!
Well, if you include Buckhead, Atlanta. Otherwise Dubai is WAAAY bigger.

I can't believe nearly half of people voted Atlanta. I have not heard of anyone wishing to visit Atlanta because of its skyline. Infact the last person I know that visited the city was not impressed with the city. However I know some people that have visited Dubai because of its skyline.

Many people.
New York, Chicago, Hong Kong and Shanghai wouldn't be as popular if they didn't had tall buildings.

It's only tied because this is a US-centric forum. No one in their right mind would choose the Atlanta skyline over Dubai.

But many in the U.S. and many on this forum, irrationally hate Atlanta.
