I have never been to Beijing but that satellite photo can give you a deceiving look of their urban sprawl not being too huge.

The satellite photo shows a huge area, so the developed size must be understood in relation to the scale. The Forbidden City is the small rectangle right at the centre, and the city has moved much outwards in all directions since. The main subway line extends west to east (takes about an hour to travel the whole distance); there is a circle line within the inner ring roads and an additional line linking the northern suburbs in a loop arrangement. The ring roads are very congested, and traffic is fairly bad.

The 5th ring road is no longer the fringe of the city. Development continues to move out, while the older hutong areas in the inner city are razed for redevelopment.

Beijing's developments are very suburban-like, with wide boulevards that are simply impossible to cross even with lights. On the other hand, there are ample bicycle lanes, which are hard to come by in Shanghai's historic core these days.

Nice pic but I said it many times that Fort Bonifacio's skyline is like 70% residential. They should build more office towers in there

Fort Bonifacio wasn't intended to be a residential area. It's not even complete.


Anyway, Jakarta is freaking stunning!!

I still believe Tokyo, Japan has the equal best skyline in the world along with New York City. I think the Tokyo skyline is visually better and the skyline is much more interesting to look at than Hong Kong's skyline. I love the variations of/in building heights. You can see some very tall skyscrapers, medium skyscrapers, smaller skyscrapers and small, medium and large buildings. The density of Tokyo's CBD is amazing.

However, Hong Kong's skyline is still brilliant.
