The Liberty 1 replica looks stunning - a great skyline considering this is a virtually unknown city... 7/10

It's not an unknown city. It's the capital of Sichuan, which is the most populous province in China.

Not bad. I like the old clock tower.

I've heard about this city. It has almost 4 million inhabitants, right?
The skyline is a little repetitive.
7/10

Pretty good skyline, not bad at all. I guess it is as the result of economic boom, China is booming everywhere. Even villages becomes big towns, and cities become massive metropolises. Overall, 7/10

About the skyline, it is VERY CHINESE as other people have mentioned. Except the one that looks like One Liberty Place in Philadelphia, all the buildings are either ugly/boxy. 5/10 for its historical/geographical importance.
