Ever since man walked upon the face of the Earth we have been trying to build things as high as we possibly can. Although sometimes it may be because we genuinely run out of horizontal space and are left with no options, it seems that for the most part our primary motivation stems from our egos. Over the course of the last century the title for worlds tallest building has changed hands numerous times and cities today are still trying to one up each other (at the times of this writing the title belongs to Dubai with the Burj Khalifa). This isn’t always a bad thing though especially for those of you who enjoy sightseeing. And if you include yourself in that category this your lucky day because from New York to Hong Kong these are the 25 most beautiful skylines in the world.
