Agreed on what? Yes the two cannot be compared for obvious reasons ... real reasons that would be unknown to you cause you obviously have no idea how these two places are, you just seams go with the flow of the bashwagon.
LOL You need to relax. What's wrong too much of that Dubai sand logged up in your ******?

I wouldn't call China a developing country with its second largest economy. There is a huge difference of course between east and west China.

I think it's time to change the 'Big 3' (NYC, Hong Kong, Chicago) to the 'Big 4.'

The way Chinese cities are growing it'll be the 'Big 50' in a decade. Even now I'd say that when you consider adding Shanghai to the elite circle of "Hometowns of the skyscraper", you might have to consider Guangzhou and Shenzhen as well. The latter in particular looks almost as packed as Hong Kong on pictures.

at least after all those constructions are finished. On another note considering how dense and big the chinese cities are there is a reason they build the 600m+ Towers so fast and in all those cities. There are so many chinese cities that build supertalls, which i havnt even heard from before its unbelievable.
