Many of China's cities boast impressive skylines packed with a seemingly endless number of skyscrapers. (Honorable mentions go to Macao, Shenzhen, Chongqing, Guangzhou, Beijing - you get it.) But it's Shanghai's eclectic skyline that stands out from the crowd. The most populous city proper in the world also has one of the most distinctive skylines, featuring Art Deco, Soviet neoclassical and traditional Jiangnan architecture. Reaching higher - and more grandly - than most are the Shanghai World Financial Center (1,614 feet), Jin Mao Tower (1,380 feet) and the Sci-Fi looking Oriental Pearl Radio & TV Tower (1,535 feet).
