    Every Tuesday Jonathan Epstein, aka @EpsteinTravels, announces the theme for #FriFotos - a weekly forum on Twitter where people share photos that match the theme. This week the theme is 'Urban'. Since we've visited a few cities over the years, we've lots of photos to share. Here are ten I picked out...

    This famous pedestrian crossing in the Tokyo neighbourhood of Shibuya is the busiest pedestrian crossing in the world.

    The sprawling city that is Bangkok.

    The world's biggest cities are fully of beautiful skylines, but there's something really special about the one you'll discover in Chicago.
