I like the avenue in these pictures. It has nice curves. Is it the "main street" of the city?

Suzhou is an ancient city. Marco Polo described it (along with nearby Hangzhou) as the most magnificent in the world. It is criss-crossed with canals and the ancient city is surrounded by a wide moat. The imperial canal which goes all the way to Beijing passes very nearby.

Today the original city is all still low-rise and is protected. Suzhou has two main high-rise districts on opposite sides of the main city (at least it did when I last went ~5 years ago. It's a bit like Beijing except that there the modern highrise forms a massive donut all the way around the ancient city.

The cbd in Suzhou is thus in the outskirts!

Could you name it? I can't think of any in Dubai that look like this.

I like the way they are planning. the old town remains elegant and classic, and the new town is just, well, breathtaking.

The only thing even remotely similar to this that I can think of would be Dubai Pearl, though of course the only commonality is having a joint roof.
