Weird how many people can get the wrong idea. there are several examples of this.
...that Ahmedabad mistake trying to do this quiz
I wish it were easy to just pack up a bag and travel the entire world for a few years. It wouldn't even need to be fancy -- I have no problem camping/couch-surfing/staying in hostels as long as it's reasonably safe and there's some vegetarian food. (Frankly, I think grand hotels can sometimes deprive travelers of a purer and truer experience of a place.) I did read about a couple who traveled and worked odd jobs to keep up the money to continue traveling... maybe one day.
Personally, I did find the regions distinctly unhelpful, although that's more because of the plethora of various asian ones. I understand why QM uses them though.
Who the hell else would I be speaking for!?
Nowhere in my message do I imply I speak for anyone other than myself.
If we go off of citypopulation.de, here are a few more cities that I think are incorrect:
-Chongqing over Cairo, 28.8 million vs. 18.2 million
-Harbin over Hyderabad (and Ho Chi Minh), 10.2 million vs. 9.6 million
-Wuhan over Washington DC, 10.8 million vs. 8.6 million
Xiamen 2016 estimate; 3,920,000
Xi'an 2016 estimate; 8,832,100
For your information, the top 3 biggest urban agglomerations in China are : Pearl River Delta, Yangtze River Delta & Jing-Jin-Ji Region. You may look them up and look for their population size, which are tens of millions of people, the size comparable to countries like Spain, Italy or UK (size varies by sources). Each of them consist of multiple large cities with their own metropolitan areas. They are also among the world's largest urban agglomerations
Perhaps I missed it because 'zh' in standard Mandarin is pronounced similarly to 'j' in English.
I don't like calling Saigon "Ho Chi Minh". he was a bad guy and should not have this great city named after him. I'm glad JetPunk accepts Saigon for HCMC.
