As an American, people here always talk about going to NYC and it being the US city to tour. Which city would be its equivalent in China? Shanghai or HK I would assume. Could someone elaborate?

Probably Shanghai. Similarly to NY it's really dense and has a mix of Art Deco and modern buildings. Hong Kong is a bit different with mainly British colonial influences.

That's what I figured. I saw a picture of it with a guy standing in front of the Pudong skyline from across the river, and it was so similar to pictures of tourists in New York Harbor.

In my opinion, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Chicago, and New York are the 4 best skylines in the world. (If you want to consider Dubai, you can. I just find it cheap and useless). Which is your favorite doesn't matter. It all depends on if you like New York's Art Deco, Chicago's Modernism, Hong Kong's Postmodernism, or Shanghai's Neomodernism. If your favorite is something else, you most likely are biased. These 4 skylines lead in height, scale, and, for the most part, aesthetics. I love them all and cannot ever decide which is my favorite.
