Chongquing is incredible ugly by day. But it also looks more interesting imo. So dirty and filthy. I really wouldn't want to be living there though!

that's why I ignored Chongqing in my ranking, a completely chaos and polluted city with a very soulless skyline and bad air quality, although I'm interested in this city's history and culture

I agree with how the city looks during the day, pretty bad and polluted.
I do however think that the city (and skyline) will drastically develop itself within the next 5-10 years.

If they managed to demolish those slum housing and build new highrise residential, reduce the air pollution and add on few more glassy building, I believe Chongqing can challenge Shenzhen and Guangzhou

I don't think so. Shenzhen and Guangzhou are tier 1 cities of China (amongst the top5). Shenzhen specially is on par with Western cities in cleanliness. Chongqing is one of the ugliest mega cities in China from the photos I have seen. The skyline is beautiful but the city itself looks horrible

I beg to differ
Chongqing is one of the top 5 largest city in china

I think they have the potential if they manage properly. They do have good setting of mountains and rivers splitting the skyline.

Shenzhen is like a new city, of course it looks cleaner and neat as compared to chongqing which has rich history.

Chongqing is not a first tier city. Shenzhen, Guangzhou, Shanghai and Beijing is.

I could give you more links if you want. Tiers are not based solely on population

I understand the tier system but all my china friend said Chongqing is top 5 city in china. Not shenzhen.
Top 5 would be shanghai, beijing, guangzhou, chongqing and tianjin.
