Shanghai Skyline

Surely the skyline of the Pudong District of Shanghai ranks up there with New York and Sydney, in terms of iconic buildings and place within the landscape.

Pudong nestles in a bend in the Huangpu River, the skyscrapers appearing marooned on an island.

The unfinished structure is the Shanghai Tower. On completion in 2014, it will reach a height of around 632m, making it a member of the exclusive club of megatall skyscrapers.
