I have been exploring many cities, many of which had the most breathtaking skyline I had ever seen in my entire life. This list is from my perspective and travel experience. I might add more in the future as I carry on traveling.
10. TAM ĐẢO, Vietnam
The small city had a unique Cinque-Terre terrain, where houses were built on the slope of the mountain. Also, you’ll be impressed by the cloud pouring down to the street. Isn’t it satisfying looking at that sight?
9. OSAKA, Japan
A green layer with Japanese structure as the center. Osaka is well known for its Osaka Castle that makes any skyline look classic.
8. SAIGON, Vietnam
I love Vietnam, that’s for sure. I even love my home city more. Saigon has always been my favorite when it comes to skyline hunting. Never got bored at this skyline across Saigon River from District 2.
7. HONGKONG, Hongkong
My first country. It didn’t fail me with the Light Symphony starting at 8 PM, which made the skyline gazing experience more mesmerizing.
6. WARSAW, Poland
Clean and well arranged landmarks made Warsaw skyline photogenic than ever.

5. PARIS, France
Paris is always a good idea. Never underestimate the view across Seine river to city center. Every corner of the city is a private museum, that adds more grace to the city skyline.
4. PRAGUE, Czech Republic
If there is a city that can be better than Paris, it’s Prague. The skyline is dense and what else, you’ve got a whole castle at view.
Talking of skyline, metropolis hub Singapore made the second spot with a generous skyscrapers in the view. Feeling overwhelmed?
2. AMSTERDAM, The Netherlands
Like a miniature model map, Amsterdam from above is even more graceful.
1. SHANGHAI, China
Despite my bad experience here, I have to admit Shanghai deserves being the top skyline. Countless buildings and a wide view from The Bund made it so easy to be impressed.
