Where are these cities made-up retort cities? Shanghai and Beijing have a lot of historical areas and the Bund of Shanghai gives the city even a flair of Europe mixed with Asian boom metropolis and American style hustle-bustle! Tokyo is THE metropolis and nothing there is retort!!! Tokyo is the most insane urban phenomenon of the planet (insane in a positive way!).
And as for Dubai/Doha etc. Yes, Erbse is right. These cities will never come close to any European, American or East Asian city. Cities that are urban by nature and grew for decades and centuries into their urban lives. Dubai however is still deepest province compared to London, Istanbul or Paris or Moscow!!! These cities do not only have a long history - they have (and had) a NATURAL growth, not a forced one!

The skyline of Frankfurt is certainly the best in Europe. However, from a distance and changing the place from which we look, we see that is far less dense than that of Paris, for example. This means that some of its buildings are far apart. In fact, the vast majority of photos posted are made from the same place.

Still, it's spectacular.

Im sorry but Rotterdam's highrises are barely above commie blocks in terms of quality.

Stop comparing it to the likes of Frankfurt or la Defense.

I had never seen the angle in the first pic. Thank you very much.

It's always good to see Frankfurt photos as well.
