HONK KONG, CHINA

#1

The city of Hong Kong has the greatest skyline in the world! Hong Kong has a whopping 48 buildings over 200 metres tall, 30 of which were built in the year 2000 or later!!! There are also an number of residential condominiums with 60 stories. It also boasts four of the 17 tallest buildings in the world… That's 20% of the top 20, all in one city! Egbert Gramsbergen and Paul Kazmierczak have dubbed Hong Kong "The tallest city in the world" in their online Skyscraper Cities Ranking List which is referenced in the Almanac of Architecture in 2006. Contrary to common belief, Hong Kong’s skyline shows a large selection of distinct sky-reaching towers and hotels, rather than block-style apartments. At night, the skyline is glimmers with lighting and reflections. This city exemplifies the post-modern skyscraper and skyline. Finally, the mountainous backdrop makes this skyline the greatest on the planet!
