The most beautiful skylines in the world
There are so many countries with beautiful skylines. We have put the 10 most beautiful in this blog. Wander away with these impressive views and who knows, you may be there soon.
- Moscow, Russia
- Tokyo, Japan
- New York, United States
- Dubai, UAE
- San Francisco, United States
- Hong Kong
- Honolulu, Hawaii
- Shanghai, China
- Bangkok, Thailand
A city that you should not underestimate when it comes to skylines is Moscow. Within one view of the city, you will find at least 7 of the 10 tallest buildings in Europe. Alternating with the modern buildings you will also find many old churches in Moscow, which provide a nice varied view of the city.
The Tokyo Tower is the same as what the Paris Eiffel Tower is. Without it, the view of the city is wrong. Surrounded by dozens of towers, the Tokyo Tower is in the radiant centre of the city. Tokyo's skyscrapers are relatively low due to earthquake hazard but are no less beautiful for this reason. Especially in the evening, you can enjoy a beautiful view of the city with all the beautiful lights.
New York, United States
This list cannot be complete without the skyline of this impressive American metropolis. You have a beautiful view of the Rockefeller Center. From here you can see the skyline of downtown Manhattan, but you can also admire the Empire State Building. Another stunning skyline in New York is the one over Central Park. So beautifully green but also so many buildings at a glance is very impressive.
The fastest growing skyline at the moment is that of Dubai. Spot the Burj Khalifa from the water here and admire the tallest building in the world with its 828 meters height. But you can not only see a beautiful skyline from the water. Also from the desert, you have a super cool view of the skyline of Dubai.
San Francisco, United States
A trip to San Francisco is not complete without seeing the Golden Gate Bridge with beautiful San Francisco lurking behind it. You will be lucky to see the bridge completely as it can be quite foggy, but if you have a clear day it is recommended that you go to Battery Spencer and enjoy the view from there.
Like all other cities, Hong Kong also has an impressive skyline. Due to lack of space, a lot has been built in Hong Kong. From Victoria Peak you have the best view of the city. Especially at night, you can see Victoria Harbor by the many lights that can be seen and it gives a completely different atmosphere than during the day.
Honolulu's skyline doesn't include as many tall buildings as the rest of the cities in this blog but is not less beautiful for that reason. The skyline of Honolulu is so much fun to see because of the many palm trees that stand in front of the skyline on the beautiful beach. This makes it the most relaxed skyline of all.
London is by no means the only city with a Ferris wheel right in the centre. Singapore has its own London Eye. From here you have a beautiful view of the city, including the Marina Bay Sands hotel. This hotel consists of three large buildings with a roof terrace, the surface of which is 12,400 m2.
A recently added building on the Shanghai skyline is the Shanghai Tower. Opened in 2016, this tower is 632 meters high, making it the second tallest skyscraper in the world. Also, this city is unlike the others, when you see it in the evening through the scene of the miraculous light shows on the skyline.
Bangkok is a vibrant city that combines a modern skyline with numerous Buddhist temples. The beautiful view that can be seen in this photo of Bangkok is the Wat Arun (a Buddhist temple) which is very impressive especially in the evening.
