5 Worlds Most Beautiful Cities Reflected in Water

5.Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Kuala Lumpur has a large population, with 1.4 million in the city itself and a whopping 7.2 million in the greater metropolitan area. Still, it’s hard to tell that the Malaysian metropolis is so big when you see the pristine buildings and airy space between them reflected tranquilly in water, as here.

4.Los Angeles, CA, USA

Los Angeles is the second most populous city in America with a population of 3,792,621. With Hollywood in its bosom, it’s often called the ‘Entertainment Capital of the World’, and this brightly lit reflection only adds to that aura.

3.Hong Kong

Hong Kong has an incredible natural harbor, which you see here reflecting some of its 7,650 skyscrapers. Its population of over seven million people is squeezed into an area just 426 miles square, making it one of the most densely populated places of the planet.


Singapore is a city-state made up of 63 islands, with a population of 5,183,700. It is a mix of green spaces and urban development – but the authorities are fast reclaiming land for the latter. Here we see the metropolis’ skyline reflected wonderfully in water.

1.New York City, NY, USA

The most populous city in the United States, the beehive of activity that is New York is home to 8,175,133 million people inhabiting an area of just 305 square miles. Yet at night, the shimmering beauty of the Big Apple’s famous skyline reflects magnificently in the waters around it.
