I think FrancisXavier meant that you'll never know that those buildings are low-quality in Chongquing until they get built. Please read the previous posts.

Nanjing was also the capital of China at one point.

China is about 10 years more developed than India. India just started its urban development in a big way. She's catching up, but still needs some time.

Give India about 5-6 years, and you'll see some pretty impressive skylines -- not just in Mumbai

Not exactly unpopular but not well known unless you've been to China or have studied it.

So far in my studies, I've learned about Ancient China. Emp. Qin was a mean one as far as Chinese emperors went.

That's good that you're learning history other than that of the US.

BTW, I would bet that most of those in The Philippines know Amoy more than Guangzhou
