I'm sorry if I don't understand anything obvious, but what does the PLA capturing Seoul in 1951 have to do with whether or not the sky is filled with cloud or smog in that image?

Actually it is NOT a smog. Shanghai is pretty clear city and enviroment is good as well. You can speak about smog in Beijing or another Northern Chinese cities, but smog`s level even in Beijing can not be associated with that picture.

Thx.

Yes, its coulds. Smog looks and behaves differently. It doesnt lay so low and its more gray and not that thick.

But calling the air in Shanghai "pretty clear" sounds funny. Yes, there are some days where you can see a blue sky, but not as often to call it "pretty clear".
Here a picture from the air quality, values over 120 are dangerous:


and here a view from my office window in shanghai, september compared with basically whole november and december:




Also shanghai has the second youngest person to get lung cancer from pollution, a 14 year old girl: http://articles.latimes.com/2013/dec...ancer-20131224
If that's "pretty clean", i don't want to know what you call dirty...

Anyway, sorry for the off-topic. SH tower is awesome!

Come down friend
Don't fool me. I'm a lover of Shanghi tower and CHINA! I respect china and chinese.
But true can't changed at all! In theses day not only SEOUL but also TOKYO suffer from china's smog! I just express my opinions about photos.
If that clould is not smog, then I'm sorry. But We have to solved environment problem.

In the 16th century, Matteo Ricci described China very well in its diary. In his European eyes, China's air looked thick, foggy, and he wrote that sometimes it looked as if a distant fire made the air look hazy. He also found weird the color of the rivers and the seas.

China's smog might be high nowadays, but the aspect of the air is mostly natural, and has looked like that for millions of years. Same for the rivers and the Yellow Sea.

The seashores of Yellow Sea (if you've ever strolled on the beautiful beaches of the city of Qingdao) are actually quite clear and bluish, it's the sea banks of the East China Sea that are looking yellowish and murky (primarily Shanghai & us Zhejiang), with the sediment of the mighty Yangtze River carried by the North-to-South Sea Currents being the inflicting culprits.

Seashores along the South China Sea are actually very scenic, notably those of the tropical resort Cities of Sanya & Boao.

Can someone tell me, if I was visiting Shanghai, are there particular times of the year one should go when the sky is clearest so one can appreciate the skyline and skyscrapers best?

But just like BK, won't have any @500m building to look down to...

(plus another one @400m next to it)

It is amazing how this twister dominates over the other two Supertalls. Are there any plans for an even taller building or will they wait until ST is more complete?
