I never understand the boundaries that City Population uses for their metro areas. They seem to lump a lot of cities together in some instances and in others, consider them distinct, when most sources combine them. Just wish it made more sense to me.

Point the area they count as Guangzhou, most don't count. And they vastly undercount the area I live in compared to most sources.

I missed Vijayawada and 20 Chinese cities but besides that I got all of the other ones correct.
