Skylines



3. Shanghai , China

Metro/Urban Population: 13.1 million Not to be mistaken for a space station, Shanghai is a
real city! China's biggest and most advanced city,
Shanghai was said to be the most cosmopolitan city
in the beginning of the 20th century, but lost its glory
during the "Mao era". It is now quickly regaining its
position as one of the biggest economic powerhouses
in the world, as well as a showcase of modern architecture.
In Shanghai you'll find 18 structures that are over 200
meters tall, one of which is the insanely tall, the 468m
downtown Oriental Pearl TV Tower.
