They are the largest cities in the world, have several million people and an amazing cultural mixture within their broad levels of population.
My theory is New York for Pacific and London for central, However Third one has the biggest competition and I think currently Tokyo is ahead of New Delhi, Shanghai and Beijing.
10 Sao Paulo | Brazil
Urban area: 12.1 million people
Population density: 8,900 people per square kilometre
Sao Paulo is Brazil’s richest city and the financial centre in Latin America. Poverty and crime, however, remain a problem for this developing city.
Sao Paulo is a very young and ethnically diverse city. More than half of its population is under twenty years old, and it is home to the largest Japanese community outside Japan.
9. Jakarta | Indonessia
Urban area: 10 million people
Population density: 14,464 people per square kilometre
Jakarta has been booming since 2005 after suffering economic crises and disasters like floods and earthquakes in recent decades. Jakarta’s economy has boosted Indonesia’s economy to a growth rate of 6 percent.
It’s fourth Asian Mega City in this list. To reduce traffic jams, some major roads have a ‘three in one’ rule during rush hours, prohibiting fewer than three passengers per car.
8. Moscow | Russia
Urban area: 16.1 million people
Population density: 3,500 people per square
Europe has some of the largest cities in the world of its own, of course. The largest metropolitan area on the continent is in the European half of Russia – more specifically in Moscow. Moscow is famous above all for the Red Square and the Kremlin, which made it to the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Living standards are so high that Moscow is one of the most expensive cities in Europe. This is reflected primarily in living costs, which have skyrocketed since the 1990s. As a
7. New Delhi | India
Urban Area: 24.9 million people
Population density: 12,100 people per square kilometre
f you think about the largest cities in the world, many people will think about India – and not without reason! There are currently around 25 million people living in the region of Delhi, which also includes the Indian capital New Delhi. 19% of the inhabitants live in the city’s slums, which for many tourists look like an impenetrable chaos. The constant honking of cars on the streets is just another part of day-to-day life here as drivers will often be stuck in queues for hours, just like in Tokyo. Though the difference here is that the traffic is a lot more chaotic
Delhi is India’s capital and recently overtook Mumbai as the biggest city by population size. It’s a place of striking contrasts. Mosques, bazaars, and narrow lanes mark the old town. New Delhi, the capital, features grand boulevards, business centers, and shopping malls.
6. Seoul | South Korea
Urban area: 23.48 million people
Population density: 10,400 people per square kilometre
Seoul has grown rapidly since the Korean War (1950-53). Today, nearly half of the country’s population lives in and around Seoul. Seoul has made remarkable progress in combating air pollution and is one of the cleanest cities in Asia.
Urban Detail: Seoul is located 50 kilometers south of the heavily armed border with North Korea. The city is in range of North Korean artillery. Plans to move the capital further south have already caused much debate.
5. Beijing | China
4. Shanghai | China
Urban area: 23.41 million people
Population density: 6,100 people per square
Shanghai has become China’s financial and commercial center and is ranked as the planet’s largest city proper. It has one of the world’s busiest ports and the world’s most extensive bus system with more than one thousand lines.
Shanghai has one of the world’s most remarkable skylines. Thirty five structures are taller than 200 meters, including two over 450 meters, the Oriental Pearl TV Tower and the Shanghai World Financial Center.
3. Tokyo | Japan
Urban area: 37.8 million people
Population density: 4,400 people per square
I’m sure you all know Tokyo, Japan’s capital. But did you know that Tokyo-Yokohama is the largest metropolitan region in the world,10 million people live in the city of Tokio itself, but when you put Tokyo, Yokohama, Kawasaki and Saitama together, a region which encompasses an area of just 14,000km², you’re looking at a population of almost 38 million! In comparison: Lusatia, a region that straddles the border between Germany and Poland, is almost the same size with an area of 13,000km², but it’s home to only 1.3 million people. As you’d expect, living space is so cramped in Tokyo-Yokohama that people have to live in tiny apartments or live together with their families their whole life in the smallest spaces. Rent is astronomical. The high density of inhabitants is reflected in the traffic – it’s not uncommon to see eight-lane traffic jams piling up for hours at a time. In order to buy a
2. London | United Kingdom
United Kingdom’s capital is the largest city in the European Union, with over 13 million people live there! London is an incredibly important and prominent city, with a huge financial centre. However, tourism is also a huge industry. London is like one of the three
1. New York | United Stated
Urban area: 20.6 million people
Population density: 1,800 people per square kilometre
This popular travel destination is the eighth-largest city in the world with a population of 20 million. If you’ve already been in the tri-state area you’ll know the gargantuan proportions that await. Many holidaymakers speak of the never-ending mish-mash of sirens and car horns that you’ll hear every day and doesn’t even get quieter at night. No wonder they call it the city that never sleeps! The city enjoys the reputation of the world’s most important trading centre, which means that alongside the touristy sights you’ll find the central offices to some of the worlds most powerful corporations and organisations as well. New York is a real centre of economic power and it’s something you can feel when you’re in the city.
