7 Largest City in the World

Considering the amount of “different” information about this subject, this is probably (so far) the post that took me more time to put together valuable and reliable information. Finally here we can check the Top 7 Largest Cities in the World.
Each of the places in this list can be called “Megacity” which, by definition, is a recognized metropolitan area with a total population in excess of 10 million people. Some definitions also set a minimum level for population density (at least 2,000 persons/square km). A megacity can be a single metropolitan area or two or more metropolitan areas that converge upon one another. All population figures for the world’s largest urban areas are simply estimates. There’s no way to know the exact population of such a large place, but this is one of the most accurate estimate that we found:

1. Tokyo
