That Beijing photo is nearly 5 years old.
By saying that, it provided a vintage view with Beijing's CBD (East Beijing), Forbidden City (Central Beijing) and Financial Street Area (Inner West Beijing) all in one perspective.
The photo was taken from the Central Radio & TV Tower by the way.

Hi Double-Wing,

I didn't know you've been to so many places in China. Good on you.

I agree with you on most of the list expect that you placing Macau before Hangzhou and Suzhou.
Those towers in Macau look so tacky and Las-Vegas-ish, I would reluctant to list its skyline in China's top 20.
