Chinese cities really do transform at dusk and become very beautiful, no matter where you are in country.

I told you they have to finish the skeleton structure first. What I would like to see is close up picture of the bottom part of that section so we can see if the structure is connected to the bottom belt truss or not. If it is I believe construction of the cladding will begin soon.

This is why I never say anything... I'm fully aware that there are high rises throughout the entire city... But in my opinion, I don't define that as constituting Shanghai's "skyline"... I consider the immediate area around the Huangpu as the skyline. Feel free to dispute it... I never offered it as fact, just opinion.

These photos are fantastic, especially the night shot cfredo posted a page back. I would definitely put Shanghai as my third favorite skyline in the world, behind only New York and Hong Kong.

shanghai has a great skyline i think, it has this character of eccentric shaped building, like orental pearl tower, and the surrounding dented structure, and colorful as well, just like dubai but it their skyscrapers are dominated with blue and white colour maybe..
but when it goes to HK/new york, the skyscrapers looks monotonous and it gives them teir own characteristics and beauty.
but shanghai is shanghai, new york is yew york, same goes to hk/dubai/ect
every city has it's own greatness
