Lightbulb What's your favourite Asian supertall?

That's a good question since there are plenty of them, and most of them looks nice!

But I think my favourite will be the 2 International Finance Centre,
but in the future it will be the Shanghai World Financial Center.
tell me yours.

Petronas. Even the most amazing photos dont do these buildings justice, they are incredible.

Maybe not the tallest in Asia on any standards however, I have always had a fondness for the Tokyo Metropolitan:

Jin Mao. SWFC is hot too, and will look fabulous when it's done.

@Bergenser,

I like many skyscrapers in Asia, but my top favorite is the Lippo Centre in Hong Kong.

Though the Nina Tower is great, my favorite remains the BoC Tower in Hong Kong:

This is like having to pick between your favorite concubines when they're all equally kinky.

I suppose Jin Mao and Bank of China tie for first place. 2nd place is also a tie between the Petronas and SWFC.
