Currently the fastest growing nation in the world, China is building hundreds of skyscrapers over 200 meters. As a result, China has produced many spectacular skylines in the past 2 decades. However, most Chinese skylines are unnoticed because they don't get publicity, except for Shanghai and Hong Kong.

The nation with most skyscrapers deserve a thread of its own here in this forum. Please share the photos you like from any/all Chinese cities :)

And I believe the ranking will be changed in the next 5-10 years
Shenzhen, Tianjin and Beijing will challenge the 1st group
Shenyang, Suzhou will be among the 2nd group
Wuhan and Changsha will jump to the 2nd group ones too!

Guys, I want to tell you one more thing about Shanghai. It's not Lujiazui that is to notice. To have a strong impression of what this huge megapolis is, you have to take the Outer Ring Road, it's southern part. There you will be able to see the huge skyline from Pudong to almost Hongqiao. And this is mind- and body-boggling. In comparison with it Hong-kong looks just tiny.

I really regret not taking such a picture by myself.

There is something about the Guangzhou skyline that appeals more to me, and I can't quite put my finger on what it is.
