I don't know where Beijing would go. Chinese members need to post Beijing . Actually I need to look at more pictures of Taipei too, it might be in top 10.

Personally I think that Middle Eastern city, just take example Dubai, somehow looks like unreal. They build so many skyscraper just in so short period of time. Why don't they flow like water??
Like several months ago, there was even a news bout Dubai World almost met bankruptcy and needed sudden extra help from creditors.

Yeah, Dubai is impressive and beautiful now, I know this.
But I would rather look it like a very beautiful woman with plastic surgeries everywhere. Gorgeous but fake, not my type of beauty.


For me the best :
1. Hong Kong
2. Other Chinese cities ( esp Shanghai and Shenzhen)
3. Southeast Asian cities ( esp Singapore, Bangkok, Jakarta, Kuala Lumpur)
4. Middle Eastern cities ( Dubai and Doha)
5. South Asian cities ( Mumbai only)

For eg, in the Marina pic there are hardly any people. Its like a ghost town lacking atmosphere.
well, i won't ruin the thread bcuz of an immature reply.
