Emporis, the global provider of building information and data, defines a skyscraper as a multi-story building with an architectural height of at least 100 meters (328 feet).

When we think of skyscrapers, cities like Hong Kong and New York City are usually the first places that come to mind. Although these cities do have an impressive collection of renowned skyscrapers — coming in at number one and two on our list — other cities also have a fair share of the world’s sky high towers.
