Perhaps everything viewed from above is breathtakingly awesome. This is, in fact, one of the many luxuries of living in a high-rise residence; you get an exclusive view of the city skyline not everyone can afford.
In the Philippines, the vibrant city of Makati offers a skyline view that is a feast to the eyes. Especially at night, urban lights when viewed from above are like stars on the ground.
