Rooftopping in Toronto has its advantages; massive skyscrapers, the city lights at night. It's glamourous. Rooftopping in other countries is also unique in its own way; the colours, the density, the character. Neither is better or worse than the other, though I can confirm that the success rate in Asia plummets quite significantly compared with back in Toronto. The penalties for such actions are unknown to me.
Here's another shot from my friend's condo in Saigon, Vietnam. I love the view.
