Tokyo and Chicago are two really underrated alpha skylines IMO.

Great find! I always look forward to pictures of this not-so-well photographed skyline!

I often flip flop between Shenzhen and Guangzhou. I love Kingkey and Pin-Ang in Shenzhen. But I like the arrangements of the tower in Guangzhou better. I also think Guangzhou has better mid-rise density than Shenzhen. I once saw an aerial picture of Guangzhou here on SSC and I thought it was Shanghai or Sao Paulo. Amazing density.... just not that commonly seen on photographs I guess.

Chongqing would be a lot more photogenic if it weren't blanketed by smog so often.

Here's a cool video I saw earlier

I wonder why pollution is a far worst problem in Chongqing than in other larger Chinese cities

it probably has a lot to do with the moisture from the river combined with pollutants. NYC, for example can sometimes be as bad, but NYC has the benefit of a breezier climate due to its coastal location, whereas Chongqing is in the middle of China.

here's another cool video.

Chongqing is located in a basin so the air stagnates. Fog is quite common in the area so with pollution, it can easily turn into a nasty long-term smog problem. They have an awesome natural setting and emerging skyline!
