Shanghai's skyline is more striking to look at with the presence of the SWFC

SWFC is too close to Jin Mao. The two tall buildings cancel out each other's prominence somewhat, although they, and Oriental Pearl, form the peaks in the Pudong skyline. Had SWFC been built a few blocks away, it might look a lot more grand. At some angles one hides the other now.

Actually, the daytime shot would emphasize the impressiveness of Hong Kong's urban expanse even more since many of the buildings and colours would be visible. At night, it's just a bunch of lights. Not that many buildings outside the core have neon all over to make their mark.

That Shanghai pano is pretty crazy. As a foreigner I have to admit that I would have found it more interesting for Shanghai to host the Olympics more then Beijing though I Beijing is by no means a bad choice.

What percentage of locals in Shanghai live in high-rises? Does it have anything that could remotely construed as suburbs outside the city?

i have to say Shanghai. the sheer number and the fact that the skyscrapers literally go on for 15 to 25 miles, it is truely amazing. unless you've been there its hard to fully grasp the extent of the city.

although hong kong's skyline was shockingly great also.
