I have seen some pretty awesome Bangkok pics on here too. They simply need to limit it to awesome Bangkok pics rather than just any Bangkok pics. Mediocre pics from somebody's hotel room we can do without.

I urge the moderator to limit the amount of Bangkok photos, for the time being. It's the only skyline I have been seeing for the past 6 months repeatedly.
Noticed that as well. We've had enough of Bangkok photos. Some shots are even redundant.

A part of Shenzhen skyline taken from an unusual angle. Seeing this angle for the first time. Resembles Central Part in New York a lot, right?

I know you know this already, but this spot isn't one of the more impressive parts of shenzhen. Hon Kwok will add height to it though ^_^ The green scenery in the background is Hong Kong, so the lack of sprawl in this photo is because of the setting being close to the Hong Kong border.

This is not the CBD and a photo taken from a very rare angle of Shenzhen skyline (the first I've seen actually). The arrangement of buildings along the park is where the similarity with New York lies.

I agree too, the presence of two 1370 foot buildings is quite noticeably more than a 1370 foot building and a 980 foot building.

But slowly, painfully and surely the other towers will rise and it will look complete.

Yes i know that but when compare this pic along the park with NY one, they are not similar due to the density. Thats what i meant

I deleted the photo anyway. We can't have everybody posting photos that big.

Love Chongqing. It slips under the radar a lot of the time, but it's a top 10 contender.

I think Chongqing have the best potential between all the emerging chinese city due to it's natural settings and it's incredible density , but it looks too gritty and dirty ( especially the river but it's natural) and the pollutionis just much higher than in the other cities ...

Chong Qing density is amazing but need better buildings

if you notice many slum housings in between buildings which affect the skyline. It looks not clean unlike Shanghai
