NEW YORK (Reuters) - There's nothing like landing at a city - either for the first time or after time away - and gazing out the plane window to catch a glimpse of its skyline. Online travel consultants Cheapflights.com offers its list of the top 10 city skylines. Reuters has not endorsed this list:

1. Hong Kong
Packed with more skyscrapers and people living above the 14th floor (read: that makes it a "vertical city") than any other city on the planet, Hong Kong and its skyline are transforming by the day. Towering across the impressive panorama - best seen from above at Victoria Peak and below from Victoria Harbor - is the HSBC Main Building, I. M. Pei's Bank of China Tower and the International Commerce Centre (at 1,588 feet, the last is the world's third-largest building). We don't anticipate that high-rise construction in the neon-lit city will slow any time soon, so keep an eye out for Hong Kong's latest architectural wonders.
