Mumbai's skyscraper developments around midtown seem quite scattered. It'll take a lot of in-fill to make a coherent skyline.

Here's an interesting combination ... Shenzhen's skyline in the background with Hong Kong's low density developments in the foreground :

This wide shot looks pretty good as well. Will hike up there some time.

The Pudong side of the waterfront is fairly quiet, but the Puxi side is very busy (the Bund) especially since it's a major tourist attraction and the Nanjing Road pedestrian street is nearby. However, the best place to see the historic buildings is from the Pudong side.

Urumqi is quite an interesting city. Located in the far west, it is home to a large Muslim population, and Xinjiang in particular has seen some separatist unrest in recent memory. In fact, the city's name itself is actually not Chinese.
