Even as the world suffers from  depression, there are cities around the world that are doing really great and one could even be tempted to wonder if they are on the same planet as them. This economic tension that most governments are facing has not affected some cities as they have instead been flourishing. These are cities that used to be deserts, those that used to be slumps and those that you never knew existed.

Shanghai, China

Shanghai

Shanghai is china’s largest city and is a growing metropolis. In this city, it is easy to see traditional Chinese structures lined beside typically western structures. The city has four seasons and temperatures can go as 18 degrees Celsius. The city has developed its commercial, tourism and finance industries. Transportation by sea, by land or by air is also well developed. The Huangpu River is lined by tall buildings on one side and by the bound of Shanghai on the other side. This area is a wonderful display of light at night as the lights in the bounds are lit.

 

Riyadh, Saudi Arabia

Riyadh

This city in a dessert has been magically transformed into a flourishing city with no trail of the desert left behind. The rapid growth of this city has been mainly due to fall backs from oil exploration and exploitation. Digging of pipeline into remote areas brought development into rural areas and today the city has expanded far into the Arabian Desert. Most of these resources have been used to fund developmental efforts especially in infrastructure.

Jiddah

Jiddah

This is another city in Saudi Arabia that is now a flourishing city. Jiddah is today a growing city and parts of the old Jiddah that are still visible are now relics and well preserved. The exploitation of hydrocarbons by Saudi Aramco has definitely influenced the growth of this city. The city is now interested in promoting technological and scientific developments. This is a port city that is strategically placed within short flying distances from Africa and other Middles East countries, it has always been a business hub in the middle east.

 

Izmir, Turkey

Izmir

Thanks to the growth in the civil society and nongovernmental organisations in Turkey, many Turkish cities have experienced fast growth and Izmir is one of them. This city that is also known as the Pearl of Aegean is a port city. the economy of the city is flourishing especially when it comes to tourism. The city is very beautiful with streets that are lined with palm and lovely beaches. The city has also grown partly due to the return of Turks from abroad who are choosing to settle in this city. this has also lead to an increase in demand for accommodation resulting in numerous construction works.

 

Hangzou, China

Hangzou

Even as China’s overall economic growth slowed down, Hangzhou was doing very well. The economy of Hangzhou had once been very good but declined after economic depressions. Today, Hangzhou is a major commercial hub attracting millions of buyers from out of the country each year.
