By your metric, we should include Chicago, which only has 2.7 million, while LA at 3.8 million is just shy of making the cut. And Vancouver city, having only 600,000, can play in the under-1-million category...

There's a reason why we go by metro populations, people

My "metric"? First of all, I wasn't the creator of this thread, secondly he DIDN'T EVEN say that only metropolitan areas under 3 million qualify! And since he mentioned Dubai as if it were a real city, then it would qualify in this thread, so i guess this is just about cities and not metropolitan areas.. And no, Los Angeles wouldn't qualify, because is already over 4 million.

Most sane people only use the words "metropolitan area" specifically to make a distinction from city proper for statistical reasons, but otherwise refer to the whole metro as a city. Most people here understood this concept, that cities are more than just the arbitrary lines drawn around a small part of an urban area. Otherwise Montreal would be "twice the size" of Detroit, when we all know Detroit's much larger. And check again who created this thread

The title actually says neither, and assumes that people will have common sense. And being the creator of this thread, I will for the last time confirm we're talking about metro populations if it isn't already crystal clear from the previous posts by others

ya ... they're the reason the skyline is so big. the metro size is the only thing that matters. if you don't understand that then you don't understand cities. stop ruining this thread.

Although Dubai consists of many really really tall skyscrapers, i do not find it beautiful at all, it looks rather stressful city. I am sorry No Offend. I think i should visit there first, see in person then decide it seems like skyscrapers are appearing in the middle of the desert to me. But i will give 10/10 for Supertall Bunja Dubai and a hotel that has 2 helipads on top floor.

A couple pics of Doha. This skyline is definitely a surprise to me, probably because it's so new. All three images were reportedly taken in 2010, and several key buildings still appear to be under construction.
