Philippines has more Hokkien than Cantonese speakers. I always see Amoy promoted more than Guangzhou.

ten year? I don't think india in 10 years can be like China today .

the gap between India and China is much bigger than their per GDP shows.
even Mumbai's infrastructure is poorer than most Chinese ordinary cities.

By per capita means then Yes! But at that time, Chinese gross economy will be 3-4 times of US.

The West is not so familiar with what's happening in the world outside their sphere of influence, and East Asia is one of those black spots. Besides the media coverage on trade deficits, natural disasters, and war, people living in the West are not so aware of the rapid economic changes and how those are affecting people's lives and cityscapes. That's normal. I don't think people living in East Asia are fully aware of what's happening in the West either.

China has a lot of cities with large populations. There are a number of threads in SSC with pictures showcasing some of these lesser-known locales with huge skylines.

There's a lot more to the world than pop culture. If people just know about culture, then they wouldn't know much about what's happening on the ground at the originator.

Both Japan and Korea are fairly insulated countries. They're aware of the news, but the language barrier makes cross-cultural understanding difficult. For example, English is not widely spoken or known in either country.

Yes English isn't widely spoken but alot of westerners go to either Japan or Korea to teach the language. Koreans on the other hand move to ASEAN countries to learn English which is cheaper. Philippines being the most preferred destination and Indonesia, 2nd.

This is not about learning English, but rather the insultation of cultures despite globalization due to the language barrier. Notice both of these markets are big enough to sustain their own large companies that are able to survive domestically and expand internationally.

That's true and Japan and South Korea have some of the largest corporation in the Asia Pacific region.

I find Japan more influenced by the Americans culturally while Koreans are influenced due to the military presence (although the Americans do have a military presence in Japan, albeit with a certain amount of tensions). However, despite the huge corporate might in both countries, the result is not a sea of skyscrapers. Normally, financial institutions are the major drivers behind skyscrapers, but Japan has a lot of large banks yet they don't have very tall skylines. Korea has a lot of industrial conglomerates, so I don't see as big of a need to build a skyscraper HQ. Factories and research labs don't need to be 60 stories tall.

Alot of high-rises in Japanese and Korean cities are mostly residential. Both countries have built high density housing estates in major cities such as Tokyo or Seoul. More called Danchis in Japan.

I won't be that surprised if China's construction is greater than of ASEAN cities. China's cities are dense.
