Hong Kong SAR, China
Debatably the best skyline in the world, Hong Kong is built on less than 50,000 acres, directly resulting in a dense high-rise environment and earning it the title of the “world’s most vertical city.” Hong Kong has more buildings taller than 500ft than any other city in the world. The International Commerce Center, at 118 stories, is the tallest building in the city and the third-tallest on the planet.

Singapore
Its own island city-state, Singapore is the fourth-largest financial center in the world. Its largest buildings are located in the historic heart of the city, with Republic Plaza topping the list at 66 stories. However, even more impressive is Marina Bay Sands (developed by Las Vegas Sands), which is the most expensive building in the world at $5.7 billion.

San Francisco, USA
San Francisco is the second most densely populated city in the US, after New York. Its most distinctive piece of architecture is, of course, the Golden Gate Bridge, but the skyline proper is dominated by the Transamerica Pyramid — only 48 stories but with a very distinctive spire. Due to the infamous earthquakes, the buildings in SF tend to be of the shorter variety.
