Because of my work I'll probably visit Shanghai next year. Is Shanghai's most impressive Chinese skyline?

It's pretty hard to find a spot from where you can actually see Shanghai's skyline. The Pearl or Jin Mao towers were best for me, but of course you can't see one of the two tallest buildings in town from them! Also, Shanghai has tall buildings over a huge area. You need good weather to be able to see the King Tower in the east and, say, the Maxdo in the west at the same time.
For density, Hong Kong just can't be beat and Chunqing looks great too. You can view both across wide areas of water though which always makes skylines look much bigger.

Nice, I'll be there in a few days visiting my in-laws...hopefully it won't be covered in an unbelievably opaque fog as was the case the last time I was in town so that I can actually take some pEEkTchas.
