@ Santa Maria, excellent photos but Flickr requires us to provide direct link to their photos. See my "how to credit flickr photos" thread for detail, thanks!

In my mind Chongqing is definitely one of the contesters for the crown! Striking location, incredible construction boom that puts places like Shanghai far behind, foggy weather that makes everything look more grandious still...

Here is one of great many Chongqing's clusters at Nan'an, located south (hence Nan) across Jialing river of Jiafangbei CBD

Don't get me wrong I love Shanghai and it's great, but Chongqing is just very special, and it grows at absolutely neck breaking speed. Of course, it has to play catch up game, but the feeling is incredible none the less.

All your stats doesnt justify what you have said, only proves Chongqing is growing at a faster rate than Shanghai, anyways it is still going to take a long time until Chongqing becomes a first tier city in China.

I think it is going to take Chongqing a fairly long time to catch up with Shanghai, before it can enter the competition for the title in Asia. Besides it needs more buildings of good quality. But it does have one advantage that cities like Shanghai or Tianjin can never have, that is the mountainous geography. Imagine that you build a 100m building in Chongqing, and it looks like a 200m+ simply because it is hiding behind the skyline on a hill.

As I discussed with SimFox in one of his threads, I think your impression(also mine too) was caused by the exterior parts of the 'old' buildings(built about 10 years ago) in Chongqing. They either lack proper maintenance or cannot be well maintained due to design/materials. The Yangtze River however cannot be cleaned because it carries a large amount of clay-based silt. The other river joining the Yangtze River at Chongqing, Jialing River, is much cleaner due to the lack of such silt.

not sure if anyone has quoted this picture here, I really like this pic of Chongqing particularly:
