Pity you missed out on perhaps the most famous night-shot of Shanghai.

What's suspect about them? Since I took the photo, I can attest that they are not fake...the only explanation I can give you is that the buildings were there when I took the shot.

Hehe. Yes. The building on the left is Shimao Plaza while the one to the right is Tomorrow Square. Both are real buildings.

Those aren't fake. I was in Shanghai last Dec and I saw these buildings. In fact we stayed right close to Tommorow Square. Here's a photo during my Shanghai trip.

It's HK without any doubt, no.1 in the world . Most of the best skylines in the world are located in Asia .

Tomorrow Square is home to the Marriott hotel. The view form their lobby, which is partially up the building, is quite nice.

Pictures from my afternoon tea ... I mean, the view :

They are amazing especially the infrastructure. But some of them aren't as fully commercialized compared to HK or Tokyo.

We looked at mountains until dawn, and then when dawn came, it was too pretty for me - there was pink and blue and gold, in the sky, and on icy places, brilliant pink and gold flashes, and the snow was colored too, and I said," Oh," and sighed; and each moment was more beautiful than the one before; and I said, " I love you, Momma." Then I fell asleep in her arms.
That was happiness then.

I used the term HONGKION because one of my favourite magazines I read and collect was Tokion which was a Japanese magazine of urban culture.

Since I'm from HK, I wrote HONGKION

Actually, Shanghai is very well commercialized, and to some extent, there is too much retail. I don't think people have any problems getting the stuff they need at all - especially luxury goods, albeit at a more expensive price than Hong Kong.

In fact, I find Huaxia to be much more commercialized and show-off than Hong Kong. Never thought they'd put big-screen TVs every few hundred metres all along that stretch of road.

Even some of the secondary cities are very commercialized - Shenzhen, Guilin, Qingdao, etc. all have very prominent pedestrian streets. Not bad for smaller cities.
