1. Shanghai
2. Beijing
3. Guangzhou
4. Chongqing
5. Shenzhen

The Yangtse River Delta and the Pearl River Delta will be China's two major business centers for the foreseeable future. Plus Nanjing, Xi'an and Chengdu will probably be good for some surprises. Chongqing is too far inland to be ever the No.1. It doesn't even have an Intl' Airport.

Shanghai already has 5 metro lines, and it has goals of 21. Shanghai's really gearing up to be one of the biggest cities in the world, so I feel like Chongqing would have quite a way to go to catch up.

In all fairness, what does it really mean to be the largest city? All it really represents is a stretching out of the boundaries, and lumping many prefectures together. If other cities around the world wanted to rezone their territories, practically any place could become the "World's Largest City."

the prob is, most places don't have that much population. I dont think the whole ontario's population is even half of that of chongqing or shanghai. So if toronto wants to become the largest city in the world, it would have to draw all the canadians into the GTA area or rezone the GTA border to cover the whole area of Canada.

Wow, nice pics! That location actually looks a like like Pittsburgh, PA, which is on the fork of riverbanks just like that.

Not in the near future. CQ is plagued with pollution, poverty and other social/environmental problems. Economic development in western China is still just beginning, but I hope one day all the major cities in China will do well. The government has a lot of hard work to do.

When does it start making sense to consider the Pearl delta region (with HK, Shenzhen, Guangzhou, and a host of other cities) as one super urban region; the largest such area in the world?

Xi'an and Chengdu haven't any chance to become a first tier city. Shenyang is becoming a major economic center as the financial, industrial (and skyscraper ) hub of North East China. Same for Wuhan about Mid-West region, but they both lag far behind Chongqing. Chongqing is booming like crazy, only Tianjin is registering a similar growth.

On the other hand, Hangzhou and Suzhou tend to be largely underrated due to its little population in comparison with main cities. Suzhou's GDP is surpassing Shenzhen's by 2008, becoming China's fourth city by GDP only after Shanghai, Beijing and Guangzhou. In fact, Suzhou is China's fastest-growing big city, above 17%. However, since Suzhou isn't too large, it will be surpassed again in a long term.

My ranking today would be
1-Shanghai
2-Beijing
3-Guangzhou
4-Shenzhen
5-Tianjin
6-Suzhou
7-Hangzhou
8-Nanjing

Mid-term (say 2010-2015)
1-Shanghai
2-Beijing
3-Guangzhou
4-Suzhou
5-Tianjin
6-Shenzhen
7-Chongqing
8-Shenyang

Long term:

1-Shanghai
2-Chongqing
3-Beijing
4-Tianjin
5-Shenyang
6-Shenzhen
7-Guangzhou
8-Wuhan

Anyway, it is too difficult making this kind of forecasts. Who knows, maybe in some years the central government decides that is it a good idea boosting say Qingdao to become a global city and it starts growing like crazy to become another Shenzhen. The gov has a lot of power to make this. Now they are giving CQ, SY and TJ full priority as it happened to Shanghai and Shenzhen in the past. However, the coastal cities are quite developed, they will boost inner cities in the coming decades, that's why I think that Chongqing, Wuhan and Shenyang will emerge as new monsters.

China is an export-oriented economy.

Though the cities along the shoreline, such as shanghai, shenzhen, guangzhou, suzhou, etc. can developed their industry.

But with the structural transformation of the huge economy by the rising of the Renminbi, the inland may take the pursuant and leap-forward development.

I need to get used to learning Chinese one day.
With more immigrants coming to the U.S. from China, it will probably be very helpful, especially if more and more of you guys can afford to come here.
