Benidorm ain't no city, it's just a huge cheap holidays resort. Its skyline is impressive in terms of density, but in terms of quality it looks disgusting.

I would really appreciate it if you could scale this pic's size down, as my current internet connection is quite slow and the page takes a lot of time to load..

with a population of 70k, I would call it a town...As a summer holiday destination, i wouldn't call it a "great city". Great cities are New York, London, Paris, etc...Is Benidorm vibrant in December?

That was only one post - because I was just saying it the way it is. The Shard would have looked better within the central cluster. Thats all.

You are getting very deep. I'm just saying that a true city starts from the outskirts - and gradually gets more and more interesting/taller as you get to the centre, where it's all big - tall - glitzy - and happening - because its the centre. Like a US city. This is simple and not confusing (especially to the eye)

Bingo.

If someone had never seen Paris before - they would be lured to la Defense - thinking it was the centre - only to find it's 18:15 and everyone has clocked off and gone home.

I have lived in London for 23 years. London is not superior, its a bit scattered - but - it's ok.

I never said it was. I just like its simple up and down tidy skyline peaking in the middle.
