Great quiz. Gives you a better taste for the city than population alone.

So happy for getting Chongqing, the most stereotypical name for a Chinese city.

I knew it, but I couldn't spell it - I still remember when we learned it as Chungking. Chonqing was the nearest I got.

My boyfriend is from Chongqing and some people in my family are conservative white people. I facepalm every time a new relative asks him where he is from, and he answers, truthfully, with the most stereotypical-sounding city in China. (Also, he tried dog meat at a festival one time when he was twelve, and now that's firmly cemented in my family's heads as another stereotype.)

Can you also include a hint next to each answer box of what country the city is in? Or continent since at least one of these answers is a city AND a country?

Maybe so but China is also seriously overbuilt. Many of these skyscrapers you see standing there are almost all or completely vacant.

Surprised Beijing isn't on the list. I was there a few months ago and at the rate they are constructing, they wont be off for long. Also, I am not even kidding when I say China will probably encompass the entire list at some point in the future, assuming this quiz includes high rise apartment complexes.

Most high rises aren't 150m tall

Building height regulations are very strict in Beijing, given the proximity to government buildings. Any skyscraper too close to President Xi's estate could be a potential sniper's nest.

Yeah, most of what I missed were Chinese cities (plus Panama). Really surprised not to see Beijing since I know China has the most skyscrapers, but I guess all those random cities explains it lol.

I'm really surprised by this. I lived in downtown Moscow for 4 years and I didn't think there were that many skyscrapers at all. And yet here they are. I guess there aren't really that many large buildings in the world. Interesting.

I was just at Moscow City last night where according to Wikipedia they have the 1st, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, and 7th tallest buildings in Europe. Though... next to Dubai or Hong Kong or New York still not super impressive.

for those that don't know "Moscow City" is not the city but a small cluster of buildings in a planned commercial/business/financial/high-end shopping district.

My memory of Sao Paulo is flying into the domestic airport and seeing 20-30 story apartment buildings as far as the eye can see. Massive population and density, but all of those buildings are too short to count for a quiz like this.
