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.

HOW EDWARD LOAN COMPANY GRANTED ME A BUSINESS LOAN!!!
Hello everyone, I am Oliver Johnson Moore from Zurich Switzerland and want to use this medium to express gratitude to EDWARD JONES for fulfilling his promise by granting me a loan, i was stuck in a financial situation and needed to refinance and pay my bills as well as start up a Business. I tried seeking for loans from various loan firms both private and corporate organisations but never succeeded and most banks declined my credit request. But as God would have it, i was introduced by a friend named Lisa Rice to EDWARD JONES LOAN COMPANY and undergone the due process of obtaining a loan from the company, to my greatest surprise within 28hrs just like my friend Lisa, i was also granted a loan of $387,000.00; So my advise to everyone who desires a loan, "if you must contact any firm with reference to securing a loan online with low interest rate of 2% and better repayment plans/schedule, please contact EDWARD JONES LOAN COMPANY. Besides, he doesn't know that am doing this but due to the joy in me, i'm so happy and wish to let people know more about this great company whom truly give out loans, it is my prayer that GOD should bless them more as they put smiles on peoples faces. You can contact them via email on {Jonesloanfinance@yahoo.com} or Text +1(307) 241-3712

I Never Believed in Chester Brian Loan Company Until now.....(Brianloancompany@yahoo.com)
Hello All, I was really so downcast after losing so much and facing financial difficulties, no one to help me and all i could do was to just seat and watch my business going down and almost losing my son to an illness. But never the less i meet an old college mate who told me about the loan he got from Chester Brian Loan Company and until now the company have assisted so many of his friends seeking a loan. So i told him that getting a loan any more is not my style because of the disappointment from my bank and other loan company i trusted but he insisted i apply for it and now i can now boost of restoring my company back to its full glory. i will keep on testifying on behalf of Chester Brain Loan because they have made me to be a man again. So if interested in acquiring a loan of any kind email them today via: {Brianloancompany@yahoo.com } OR text (803) 373-2162 .Am Harvey Lee from United States of America.
