Thanks for the tour!

I'm puzzled over Cairo, Egypt's skyline, there doesn't seem to be a central core to that city, high rise here, high rise there!

Couple thoughts:

1. Beirut is beautiful.
2. Doha has an impressive highrise cluster but I hate the giant dildo.
3. Kobe always looks "cozy and comfortable". Looks like a nice sized city.
4. Cartagena looks great
5. La Paz - I always forget about this city.

* There are about 150 Chinese skylines missing.

Very nice idea, thanks! However, I think that all skylines should be on daytime to make a fair competition, there could be a nigttime version as well.
