Ipoh is always left behind in pursuing a metropolitan skyline. There is a dream of many Ipoh folks to catch up with other Malaysian cities to build tall & big buildings. However, is it better to just have more and more high rise buildings? To me, the best skyline shall consists of skyscrapers with well-designed, built in quality, strategically located, and stays in harmony with the older part of downtown. As at this moment, there is no good planning to bring Ipoh towards achieving great skyline, but I have seen proposals by the city council to "kill" the heritage buildings by having modern high rise buildings surrounding the heritage landmarks.
