HongKong - the "vertical city"
Hong Kong is waiting for its guests!
Our first choice is Hong Kong - the Chinese megapolis! There are numerous skyscrapers and many people live higher than 14th floor, so this metropolis is also called the "vertical city". Hong Kong and its city silhouette are transformed during the day. An impressive city panorama can be admired from the top of Victoria Peak or Victoria Harbor. The main building of the HSBC, the Bank of China Tower in Taipei, and the International Trade Center - the third largest and tallest building in the world is also there. We do not expect the high-rise building in the neon-lit city to decline in the foreseeable future. So, keep your eyes and ears open and learn about Hong Kong's latest architectural wonders.
New York always has a lot to offer its visitors!
Empire State Building, Chrysler Building, MetLife Building just waiting to be discovered by new city guests! Manhattan's epic cityscape is synonymous with the diverse possibilities in this megapolis. Maybe you want to admire the cityscape of Brooklyn Bridge or take a look at Midtown from Hudson River? Big Apple is full of attractions, from Brooklyn to Bronx and every visit to this city that never sleeps is well worth it.
The Sydney Opera House is at the heart of the modern cityscape of the Australian metropolis.
There are only a few buildings worldwide that are perhaps as iconic as the Sydney Opera House. That is why we consider the Sydney Opera House as the figurative centerpiece in the modern cityscape of the Australian metropolis. The unmistakable, modernist roof of the multinational event center immediately attracts everyone's attention, it looks like a series of shells or a giant sail. The Sydney Opera House is rightly included on the UNESCO World Heritage List. Other landmark buildings such as Bligh Street, Sydney Tower and the MLC Center similarly represent the best of world architecture, making the city skyline of the largest city in Australia memorable. The panoramic view of the historic and beautiful harbor of Sydney is just as amazing.
Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
The world-famous monument of Christianity - the Christ the Redeemer in Rio de Janeiro
The typical landmark of the Brazilian megapolis Rio de Janeiro is one of the Seven Wonders of the World, so it should come as no surprise that Rio's cityscape also deserves our interest. Is there a better-known Christian monument worldwide than the Christ Redeemer statue on Corcovado Mountain? This is a monumental work, also a great symbol of Christianity. Rio de Janeiro is located on the Brazilian Atlantic coast, where the natural wonders are seamlessly interwoven with admirable buildings. Millions of people live together in this socio-economically divided city that preserves churches and buildings from the 15th century to the present day. The amazing urban silhouette of Rio and its people, old and young, rich and poor, set the pulse of this city.
The city of love is worth every visit there!
Compared to other major cities worldwide, Paris owes its place among the top 10 favorites, above all, its iconic landmarks that romantically represent the cityscape during the day and at night. After visiting the Sacré Cœur basilica in Montmartre, visitors to the city seem to understand the magic of Paris. Most are deeply charmed by the sight of the shiny city skyline and the Eiffel Tower. Here you can make a particularly long city tour - from the Arcde Triomphe over the Champs Elysées to Concorde and the Musée du Louvre- and admire the cityscape of the French capital up close.
Dubai, United Arab Emirates
The skyscrapers greet the guests of Dubai from afar!
Spurred on by oil revenues, Dubai has experienced rapid growth and accelerated construction activity. His cityscape reflects these tendencies. Its numerous and sleek skyscrapers, many of which have sprung up over the past five years, look remotely like huge, large artificial stalagmites protruding from the desert floor. Buildings such as Burj Khalifa and Burj al Arab combine state-of-the-art architecture with design features from nature and the typical of Islamic cultural heritage. They help us rediscover the skyline of Dubai on every trip or city visit.
The Windy City of the USA is a tempting destination in all seasons!
The Windy City Chicago actually has a freezing cold winter that usually lasts four months. But in the warmer seasons, the second largest city in the US becomes livelier and can offer its many guests plenty of culture and entertainment. During a boat trip on Lake Michigan, guests and tourists can admire the enchanting cityscape and look at the skyscrapers from afar. You just have to see Sears Tower, Hancock Building and the entertainment park Navy Pier!
Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
Have you been to Kuala Lumpur before?
There is something especially majestic in Kuala Lumpur's skyscrapers. Malaysia is a multicultural miracle.

Many of the Chinese cities offer impressive city silhouettes filled with a seemingly endless number of skyscrapers. But it is the eclectic cityscape of Shanghai that visually stands out from the rest. The most populous city in the world undoubtedly deserves it. Higher and bigger than anyone else are the Shanghai World Financial Center, Jin Mao Tower and the construction of Oriental Pearl Radio and Television, which came out of a sci-fi movie.
