Chongqing is in my top 5 probably it truly is underrated.
Chongqing has a fabulous setting, but suffers from an image problem. Like many Chinese cities, there are tons of repetitive grubby apartment blocks. Until Chongqing balances them out with better quality buildings, it will continue to be marked down.

I'd love to put Chongqing in my top 10, but the beauty and quality of Melbourne's skyline trumps Chongqing's scale and setting.

So your personal top 10 just happens to mirror the woefully incomplete Emporis list right down the points awarded. That's quite a coincidence. :|

Agreed. Chongqing though does look like what I'd consider to be the true Gotham city: tall, large, and gritty.:D

Gosh top 25 is too intimidating for me. I second guess my bottom 5 in the top 10 too much so I could never do top 25.
I think I spend too much time looking at cities around the world on SSC. :lol:

My top 10, with the help of Wiki*

1) Hong Kong, China
Part of emerging Pearl River Delta metro area

Lower building quality than NYC and too many commieblocks, but Hong Kong wins because of its nature (mountains). Plus, it has a bigger potential (since China is gonna surpass USA economically). It also looks so futuristic!


2) New York, United States

No explanation needed.

3) Shanghai, China

Also has a great potential, may surpass NYC one day.

4) Chicago, United States

Started the era of skyscrapers along with NYC. I also love the Neo-Gothic architecture.

5) Tokyo, Japan

Tokyo is the world's most populous metropolitan area and has the highest city GDP in the world.


6) Toronto, Canada

Toronto skyline would look more massive if all the tall buildings were along the Lake Ontario waterfront. Toronto also leads North America in high-rise construction.**

7) Dubai, United Arab Emirates

8) Shenzhen, China
Part of emerging Pearl River Delta metro area

9) Guangzhou, China

10) Singapore, Singapore
