I really like this photo of Toronto and think it's a pretty good representation of Toronto's overall density. It just wasn't posted correctly for Flickr and I did send a PM about that.

No ,all the Chinese cities if they have villages in the downtown,the density is like this:

Sure isn't #1, but Sydney has a tightly packed CBD burdened by water on one side, parkland on the other and stringent height limits. It doesn't have the expansive low rise sprawl of other cities, but the CBD is impressive at street level especially.

Nepal is one of the world's most fascinating and naturally beautiful countries!

The Kathmandu urban area (Kantipur - Lalitpur - Bhaktapur) is a complete contrast and contains nearly 3 million people in 50 sq km!

Some photos of this amazing place-

Shanghai grey?! It is much more colorful than NY. If you see some buildings looking alike in one place, you'd never see them anywhere else in Shanghai.

we can find densest skylines with low-rise building in most of cities more than 1 million inhabitants.

With highrise building(>100m according to SSC definition). Hong Kong is the densest :
just 1,104 km2 but nearly 3000 building 100m+ and about 120 building 200m+.
Next:
2.Shanghai
3.New York
4.Shenzhen
5.Guangzhou

And supertall densest skyline is certainly Dubai
__________________
Number of 150m+ Completed Buildings (June 2017)
Hong Kong : 376 ; New York : 254 ; Dubai : 179 ;

Guangzhou : 175 ; Wuhan : 171 ; Shenzhen : 155.

Shanghai??? Dense??? it's a joke. Chungking is like 100 times denser whilst HK is around 1000 times. Skyscrapers in Shanghai are often separated by public spaces, parking lot, big courtyards and really big roads.

Supertall construction in New York:
- super dense area
- buildings nearly touch each other
- tower meets the street
- vibrant street life
- verticality
-


Example: 432 Park Avenue, 1398ft/426m (roof)
http://432parkavenue.com/





You won't see this kind of supertall construction in other cities.

Yes! We are getting to go to a lot of places we've never been to before! I especially like the different angles of Sydney and Tokyo from what I've seen before.
