I know what they look like that's why i said that. maybe because of the abundant amount of residential buildings that resemble each other. maybe i have used the wrong term. i should have used resemble instead. thanks for the pics. love them. if i may ask? what are the unique characteristics of each chinese cities' skylines that made them distinct from each other. please answer thanks! coz i think you interpreted what i said about them literally that you had to post pics of them.
I will assist.

Beijing, Is more like the communist manifesto of how Buildings in authoritarian country should be. Buildings are massive and fat, and they form symmetric clusters around each other. There is perfect mix between old and new and you can not find a better Chinese city really. It is very well planned by chinese standards. where all functions are clearly and geographically separated, Xidan, which is the financial center sits on the opposite end of the academic and high tech area which sits on the other end of the CBD and diplomatic end,all surrounding the ever impressive forbidden city. what it lacks in height, it makes up in volume.

Shanghai, Needs no introduction, Pudong is the masterpiece of how to rebuild Manhattan from ground up, and i must say they are on track. Wide streets, world class mega structures. the other side of teh bay you meet the old shanghai with almost zero adherance for rules, narrow alleys, and impressive old architecture. The difference between these two sides is day and night, but both sides are very impressive.

Shenzen and Guangzhou are south China's biggest cities and almost look alike, but they differ in such, meg asturcture in Guangzhou are spread along the guangzhou bay, where as in Shenzen, they concentrate in the CBD. you can see these clearly in the pictures of the two cities. Guangzhou mega-structure are also slightly newer.

Chongqing is the boss of density. does not have the tallest buildings, but i can not remember seeing that many towers spread for such a huge area anywhere else other than Tokyo metropolitan area.

Think of an urban sprawl kind of city, where ideally you would have a small CBD and miles and miles of Vilas, except that in Chongqing case these miles and miles are 30+ apartment buildings. You have to go there to to believe it. I think the mayor went to HK and decided the entire city should look like HK.

Tianjin, is what i call a balanced Chinese city and it's the one that resembles western cities a lot. It has a clear cut CBD where all the big megastructures are concentrated and even a decent suburbia.its housing developments were still relatively low level. The best part of Tianjin for me is the Western Quarter that sits just a few kms from CBD where you can take a picture and it looks like it was taken in London.

So, there you have it, my personal opinion of Chinese cities. They are very different and each have unique characteristics.

In my opinion, fewer cities in Asia, are as pleasant to live in as Osaka, even Tokyo is no match. It is by far my best rates city in Japan and Asia.

True however Japanese cities do not have a distinct skyline as you can see it isn't as spectacular as its Chinese and American counterparts, my argument is that most of the buildings are generic and of the same size. However, in terms of urban agglomeration size Tokyo and Osaka are indeed beasts.

Thanks! greatly appreciated. i honestly think that all aforementioned chinese cities should be in the top 10 or 15 except maybe for beijing and nanjing. my favorite is guangzhou aside from shanghai and HK( this is considered a chinese city or am i wrong? ) i think HK is more like a city-state just like SG.
