!!!Shanghai, biggest skyline of the world!!!

Found by me from the web. Huge and new ones.
I'd be surprised if you're not surprised by the skyline.
Enjoy!
(And don't forget: this skyline is not there once and for all. It is still growing.)

11. Hongqiao, in west Shanghai, an area rarely seen on the web

12. A rare angle of Pudong, although you know every building here.

13. A not-so-often visited corner of Pudong. This is itself already a decent skyline, although you have even never seen any pic of it.

Shanghai is getting bigger and bigger but the skyscrapers in pudong, in my opinion, dont match well in a good harmony

Yes Shanghai is quite impressive in it's sheer size. Biggest in the world? No, but it sure is amazing.

It really scared!

The skyline is really big, but not beautiful, I think it's so massive.

^ Did they recently repainted those roofs blue or has it always been blue? I never seen those before.

To be honest, the skyline is just covered by whole bunch of concrete apartment blocks which look all the same...
I think this definitely ruins overall city's skyline, and Pudong's great skyscrapers become look shorter and less impactful.

I like the Pudong skyline view across Huangpu river though. I can't wait until the third supertall tower is built beside SWFC and Jin Mao.

Could be possible.

But i think Guangzhou will have the most beautiful and most impressive one in China (beside Hong Kong) in some years.

Chongqing is already massive and has so, so many under construction. There are so many plans underway too. I think it's just much cheaper to build in Chongqing than any other city in China, except for Hong Kong, since the ground base is made out of granite and not soft stilt-clay from the river. In Shanghai, they have to dig much deeper foundations for the skyscrapers, which is more expensive, otherwise the skyscrapers would tip and fall over.

Chongqing is also much more space-limited (between 2 mountain ranges), and it's the world's fastest growing city. It's in a basin region of like 85 or 200 million people (cant remember which one).
