True...both are major economic centers, but may be Liuzhou being a prefectural-level city escaped the rate of industralisation of Chongqing...for now.

Shenzhen is so epic. Most of the contenders on the best skylines list have one great cluster, but SZ is polycentric in a way only a real economic power center can manage. That's why when this generation of supertalls finishes construction, it'll be firmly in the top tier along with other polycentric alpha cities like NYC and Hong Kong.

My only gripe is all the identical mid-rises. The thing that sets NYC apart from most of its rivals is its tapestry of historical low- and mid-rise buildings from many eras. You can't manufacture an architectural history but hopefully as development money continues to pour into SZ (and as the development process becomes more capitalistic and less centralized) some of those 70s-80s apartment blocks will at least be replaced by more interesting filler.

In any case, the future is looking very bright.

About Manilla(or actually, its metro), I definitely wouldn't include it into my personal Top 10, but I also certainly thing there is nothing wrong in posting it here. We can enjoy more variety than just NYC, HK and Shanghai.
