What makes Singapore one of the most special countries in the world
is its level of financial stability despite its very small territory.
Because of its development, many investors have come to establish
businesses, which made way for the creation of many jobs, even
housing many of its residents in high-rise buildings just to have
everything crammed in one place. Currently, there are over
141 skyscrapers colouring the evening sky.
Because it has been gaining the attention of people coming from various
nations, Toronto is now seen as a city that is very receptive to
diversity, making it a perfect place in opening businesses that cater to
the international market. It was obvious enough that being the biggest
city in Canada could also be a reason to have a skyline that’s worth
bragging about. Industries such as banking, insurance, commerce, and
tourism have led to 162 skyscrapers in the city.
On the eastern part of Mainland China, Shanghai is taking its steady
pace of being one of the biggest financial powerhouses in the world.
The city is actually quite huge, dividing itself into 204 towns and
99 sub-district neighbourhoods, sharing the space with over
1,063 buildings found in different sections of the city. It has over
229 skyscrapers, making everything look high-rise.
DUBAI, SAUDI ARABIA
No doubt, with the Burj Khalifa standing in the midst of over 240
other skyscrapers in the city of Dubai, UAE has one of the most
attractive skylines that you could ever imagine. Diversified in its
market focus, companies both from near and far come to take the
opportunity of expanding their businesses to target international markets.
The windy city is known for its many high-rise buildings and skyscrapers.
Its skyline is actually named as one of the most attractive in the
world and has over 283 skyscrapers, where Willis, Donald Trump,
John Hancock, and AT&T take most of the attention.
Tokyo, being the Japanese centre of commerce, entertainment,
education, finance, and even vehicle production, is known to have one
of the most crowded skylines in the world and with over 347 skyscrapers
and growing, the skyline is getting even more crowded.
NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK
Central Park, Madison Square Garden, Empire State Building, the Statue of Liberty
and even Wall Street made New York City one of the places in the world
that has the most number of skyscrapers ever. The 573 high-rise
units, along with many other buildings have been created to make way for
international companies to be close to one of the most active trading
centres ever, the New York Stock Exchange.
HONG KONG, CHINA
Hong Kong is famous for being the shopping and tourist destination of
nearby Asian countries such as the Philippines, Thailand, Indonesia
and even Malaysia. This is because of the abundance of businesses
that have established their offices and stores here and with more than
1,300 skyscrapers overlooking the richest business district in China,
this makes Hong Kong one of the most crowded cities in the world.
