Top 10 Most Beautiful Skylines in the World




After I posted an article about the most expensive cities in Asia last year, I thought I could create more list that has something to do with city rankings all over the world. What I have now is the list of cities with the most beautiful skylines. Skylines that are made through combination of high rise buildings, tall towers, huge monuments, natural land formation and other things that makes a city's skyline beautiful.

The results and my choices are based on information I got from sites like Emporis.com and of course Wikipedia.org.



10. Rio de Janeiro

What made Rio de Janeiro so spectacular is that its skyscrapers are placed in an already beautiful setting, a combination of  majestic natural land formation, gigantic monument, a huge lagoon and a magnificent white sand beach. All these panoramic attraction can be seen while you are at Corcovado.
