Nowadays, Luoyang is the 2nd largest city in Henan Province after the Provincial Capital Zhengzhou.
Yes, I think they do have a decent skyline.
I'll try to find the photos of Luoyang and post them later. :)

So last time I was in Nanning I went up the glass elevator of Diwang when it just opened for the day and checked out the view and planned, walked thru the expo (and had a milktea) over to ASEAN CBD for all the skyscrapers, turned towards Qingxiu mountains visible on the picture, explored most of it and then walked across the bridge to the new Wuxiang CBD to take my evening metro back to city center for dinner. For a skyscraper fan, that was a hell of a one-man one-day city exploration. I can strongly recommend this route, if you don't mind walking.

Wow, sounds like fun! (Only skyscraper fans would say that. :D) May I ask what "Diwang" is?

Former tallest building of Nanning

It claims to have the tallest elevator made of glass that you can look out to go to the observation deck in China, I do not know if it is still true.
