Wuxi

Wuxi rhymes with Sushi and is one of this cities only few people outside China ever heard of, unless you are not involved into automotive business and had a business trip. The city is located in the gigantic Nanjing-Shanghai-Suzhou-Hangyhou-CottonEyeJoe metropolitan area which has about 40 million inhabitants. Also wuxis population easily exceed one million but it is dwarfed in size of importance of its neighbouring cities. In China it is popular for a lot of automotive suppliers being based here.

the city is not as ugly as the first photo implies. Wuxi boasts a huge park with pagoda temples and shares a border with the shallow Tai Hu lake where tourists casn relax at a recreational area

Harbin is a very young city by Chinese standards.
The region of Harbin was still largely rural until the 1800s. There were only over ten villages and about 30,000 people in Harbin region by the end of the 19th century.
The modern city of Harbin originated in 1898 from a small village.[4] The city was established by a Polish engineer Adam Szydłowski following the construction of the Chinese Eastern Railway (KVZhD) financed by the Russian Empire.[5] Chinese Eastern Railway is an extension of the Trans-Siberian Railway, shortcutting substantially the distance from Chita to Vladivostok and creating a link to the port city of Dalny (Dalian) and the Russian Naval Base Port Arthur. During the Russo-Japanese War (1904-5), Harbin was a base for Russian military operations in Northeastern China.
