Skylines to make your heart soar!

Among the many aspects that make cities unique, their skyline is often the most majestic.

Each one carries an impression on the eyes and an imprint on the landscape that can form a stunning background to your memories that lasts forever.

Here's a list of some of the best skylines:

Hong Kong

With skyscrapers designed by world famous architects and a city full of state-of-the-art buildings, it's no surprise that Hong Kong's skyline is claimed to be one of the best in the world. A blend of man-made and natural beauty with a mountainous backdrop setting the scene, the reflections of the city at night are incredible, especially looking out over Victoria Harbour. Don't miss the city's daily free laser light show, an electric movement in more than one form!


Acknowledged as the birthplace of the skyscraper, Chicago's skyline boasts 3 of America's 5 tallest buildings, making it a firm contender for any Best Skyline award. Home to the USA's tallest tower, the Willis Tower (formerly the Sears Tower) is a whopping 108 stories high!


Shanghai, one of the fastest growing modern cities in the world, boasts a futuristic skyline. Take a trip to the viewing gallery at the top of the second tallest tower in the city, the 'Oriental Pearl' and admire the spectacular view the city offers. Enjoy the throbbing nightlife beneath a stunning urban vista!

New York

Manhattan, New York, has one of the most romantic skylines in the world. This leading global city boasts a diverse range of buildings and architectures, making it one of the most photographed. Whether you admire it from the Brooklyn Bridge, from a helicopter high above or from the top of the Empire State Building, you have to see it for yourself to believe it!


Home to over 26 million, Tokyo has grown from a small fishing village to a vibrant metropolis, complete with a breathtaking skyline of its own, emphasising Japan's place in modern and corporate architecture. It is home to the famous Tokyo Tower, modelled on the iconic Eiffel Tower in Paris, which changes colour every night. Its skyline is particularly striking at dusk.

Kuala Lumpur

KL will not leave you disappointed! Modern buildings reach for the sky, made famous by the iconic twin Petronas towers for their panoramic views across the Malaysian capital. Take a stroll along the skybridge between the two towers situated on the 41st and 42nd floors, the highest 2-storey bridge in the world.
