The "ball" doesn't look ugly when lit up like that.

That's like saying Tokyo's population is 32 million...

It's more like 15-16 million.

Actually, Shanghai is considered "The largest city proper by population in the world". All those 23 million people lives inside the city boundaries.

In contrast, in Tokyo lives only 13 million people, and the rest to 32 million, they live in the metropolitan area, which is not Tokyo.

So yeah, Shanghai as a city is bigger than Tokyo. But it's not as a metropolitan area.

Pudong looks nice but that sea of ugly tenement blocks really detracts from the overall skyline.

I've always liked how the Oriental Pearl Tower is lit up at night.

They don't seem to have the same design... or height... all cats look the same in the dark.
