In my opinion, Hong Kong has the most stunning skyline I've ever seen. Some views with the mountains in the back are beautiful. Everyone must take a visit there.

Well, I was fascinated by the Sears tower when I went to Chicago a few years back. We didnt go in but was within a few blocks from it.

New York's skyline is impressive, but extremely bland. Most buildings are pre/post depression.

My list:
5. Anchorage (Mountains!)
4. Seattle (Nice financial district, Mt. Rainier is beautiful)
3. San Francisco (Extremely unique skyline. Transamerica Pyramid is the cherry on top)
2. Dallas (Oooooooooh! Shiney new buildings! )
1. Dubai (Self explanatory)

1. Hong Kong baby!



2. New York
3. Chicago
4. Vancouver
5. Sydney

I think skyline-wise, Chinese cities are the wave of the future. I'm very interested in seeing how Shanghai, Guangzhou, Shenzhen and other Chinese cities look in 10 years. Dubai as well.
