I still can't put my head around what it is about Shanghai's skyline that I don't like.

I don't like Shanghai's skyline because there are far too many color differences among the skyscrapers (not including the obs tower). It would be more pleasing to the eye if they were more uniform.

The Pudong skyline reminds me of an amateurly plopped SimCity downtown area.

Its because when you see recent pics of Shanghai they more focus on Pudong which is more an inner suburb.

This is more Shanghai.

Wish China the best skyscraper country in the near future

Yea, it's something about the Pudong skyline I don't like. The arrangement of buildings, as they currently are, just doesn't work out in the skyline.

Puxi is fine.

Shanghai skyline, as I always say, is one of the best in the world. In the photos, the skyline looks great. If you're there, it's breathtaking, magnificent to see those towers esp. in Pudong. Visit Shanghai!

i like beijing more now! those boxy buildings at the center don't look good individually -- so mediocre IMO -- but together they form a modern-looking simple yet sophisticated skyline.

Beijing CBD looks very sterile, nothing like what you think Beijing is supposed to be!

took some time but i really like it, when i saw it from a plane this winter it looked really good! dosnt feel Chinese at all! (from the air) but i guess that is a good symbol for the new modern china.. down on the ground it is still china
