In terms of integrated strength. Better change the title to 10 strongest cities in mainland China. Urbanization is more of importance...
See the way how the US developed. In economic terms, Shanghai and Beijng, Guangzhou etc. etc. r in place as to NYC, LA, Chicago ...(percentage of national economy) The reason why the US is much ahead is that it is highly urbanized and industrialized. There rn't many big cities in the US but in terms of number of cities the US is placed the #1. Many more small cities can make more sense than just huge metropolises considering the ability of management for Chinese. No time for boasting...

I agree with the list except for Wuhan, Tianjin, and Shenyang. Instead, I put Hongkong, Chongqing, and Qingdao.

Tianjin, Wuhan, Shenyang, Nanjing are definitely not qualified! It's very shocking that Dalian is not in the list.

Chongqing is the bigest municipality directly under central government in China. And then the Chongqing city is still huge with a large citizen population. I've ever watched a program about China in Discovery Channel. This program said Chongqing city is the third bigest city in China.

The third-largest city in China is TIANJIN.

Dont think that is accurate by now? Chongqing got a new border thanks to the new municipality which was setup?

Beijing is definitely larger than Shanghai in terms of land size, but not in population. Beijing has roughly about 13 million people while Shanghai has 16 million. Financially Shanghai is definitely ahead of Beijing. That's like comparing New York to Washington D.C.

You know what the Chinese will do. Enact laws which prohibit over extraction of ground water and over-building, which is going to be hard. If all else fails, they will just build a huge tidal barrier, no matter how impossible it may seem today.

BBC has never been a good friend of China as far as I know.

Hong Kong is usually not included in Chinese polls is because HK is not fully integrated into China. Its part of China but it is still a special administrative region, and HK has its own government.

I suppose some things are perhaps more a case of perceptions then factual...especially as time progresses?

There is a Scottish government in the UK too, but Glasgow is considered both a Scottish city as well as one in the United Kingdom?

China's top 30 cities

Hi, I'm very interested in seeing pictures of those that could be considered China's top 25-30 cities. I've seen pictures of A LOT of Chinese cities in the international forums and I was hoping you had some. Thanks.
