Beauty made by man -> Rome and Paris.

The top 3 Asian cities: Shanghai, Singapore, Hong Kong, for being such dramatic sisters.

1. They have waterfronts
2. They have colonial buildings
3. They have neon.

Hong Kong:



Singapore:



Shanghai:




And i'm going to give one more of Singapore cos i'm from there:

I don't recall having post my list, for all practical purposes then...

Rio de Janeiro --- Paris --- Hong Kong

In no particular order, the three finest examples of civilization complexes this days!

I honestly don't know why so many people say Rio. It has a nice setting, but it is as crowded with ugly midrises as many other cities around the world... I have seen a thread with an old historic city in Brazil that would have much more structure to be mentioned here! Unfortunately I don't remember the city's name,...

Another favourite:
Saint Petersburg:

Saint Petersburg looks strangely sprawling for a European city!
