Not the tallest buildings, but a nice grouping of towers.

best skyline does not determine the level of development of a city. I admit Chongqing has a an amazing skyline, but after look these pics IMO i realized that Chongqing is not as beautiful as it looks in the pictures

Chongqing is rapidly cleaning up, as China's newest megacity (it's actually 2300 years old)

And this pic btw is one of several old towns, that the local govt has slated for restoration - but controversially as the locals are committed against it

.

This is what the other sections look like after the face-lift:

Interesting skyline cos u have new and old face. Unlike shanghai whereby the old and new is separated by delta river.

In chongqing, the old mixing with the new skyline. In fact the heritage building has rich in chinese history unlike the one in shanghai with colonial buildings.

If they managed to restore all these place, chongqing would be a great place for visitor

Land expropriation is a sensitive topic in China, especially when there are many accusations of developers bribing government officials to kick residents out with minimal compensation as the bulldozers march in.

Great pictures of Chongqing above. The city - and its skyline - is changing so rapidly!

as impressive and well spread some of the east asian cities appear from afar, they still do not look aesthetically pleasing as most western skylines. compare a rather small tall skyline like london to shanghai, to me london looks far better. the gently ascendance and descendance along the clusters and the beautiful way the city blends and flows is not seen in the rather disconnected and megalithic east asian skylines. shanghai, seoul etc have rows and rows of concrete blocks that create disconnected walls that dont flow
