Buenos Aires

My favourite city in the world would have to be London, but given the fact that it has already appeared twice in this thread, I'll put my second favourite city. Buenos Aires!

Because it looks fresh...

By Maxem

and rusty...

By Bascraper3

it is melancoholic..

By Bascraper

and sad

By Aloy Concept

but still charming

By Bernini

and somehow weirdly alive

By Michaeltje

and even though it kinda crowded

By Gordon2

it has saved some room for houses

By Aloy Concept

as Yoda would say 'visit it you must'

Hong Kong

1. Modern and Timeless Architectural Haven

2. Photogenic, man-made

3. Photogenic, natural

4. Charmingly real, under the glittery facade

5 & 6. From concrete jungle to nature, at a stone's throw: 360 degree view from The Peak

Part 2 - "The 'Other' Billion Dollar View"image hosted on flickr

7. Colonial relic - quaint history kept alive by luxurious consumerism


8. Food haven, part 1

Source unknown, taken from Google Images a long time ago

9. Food haven, part 2

Source unknown, taken from Google Images under "Hong Kong Food"

10. Luxury and service unmatched

Source unknown, taken from Google Images under "Peninsula Hong Kong"

I actually wanted to find a theme for 'Chinese history', but couldn't find a good image to encapsulate it. It would have replaced #10 on the list, but since it's just a nice picture, it goes up instead
