The building itself is getting more and more beautiful but doesnt go together with Jin Mao at all. They are so... different. Its like keeping ancient statue with modern art painting in one room. Don't you think so?

i think they made the jim mao and the wfc a little too close together. I think they should have at least put the wfc next to it instead of infront of it, because the skyline from the ocean front hides pretty much the entire building. Such a great addition to the skyline but behind the other worlds tallest building

I actually thought the Shanghai skyline would be comparable to New York's but so far, I'm quite disappointed.

The Oriental Pearl Tower seems to outshine both the Jin Mao Tower and the WFC in prominence.

Yeah, and I agree. Jin Mao and SWFC are too close to each other...

I would say the biggest difference between NY and shanshai is that shanghai has only got modern and colourfull skyscrapers and NY almost hasn t got any of these

After seeing the last pic, I agree.

from my experiences in shanghai and from what i have seen of new york, i cannot say new york is better. i also cannot say shanghai is better because i haven't been to ny. but i can say shanghai feels and looks more modern and it's my favourite city in the world so far.

if u google both cities, you get good pics and bad pics. if u think the shanghai pics in previous pages are not that great, i suggest u actually go have a visit, which looks better in real life.
