Chengdu has now passed Chicago.

The Chicago area came oh-so-close to the 10 million person cutoff for "megacity" status but is now losing population.

Kunming has a about 3 Million bigger population than Kuwait City. Sry but your source is BS. The US cities are way too big and the chineese way too small.

I thought Tucson, AZ, was bigger than Turin, so after I hit Turin I typed Tucson over 5 times. Checked the source and found that I was monumentally wrong.

That was insanely difficult for me - I only got 9. I thought of a bunch that didn't work, like Kunming, Denver, Tulsa, Calcutta, and Hohhot. I feel some dumb seeing the answers, but trying to think of cities based on their letters was much harder than I would have thought.

Usually, the picture shown in the thumbnail is of the first answer on the page. But this picture of not of Tokyo, it is of Osaka. Not a mistake by any means, as they both appear on the list, but I just didn't want anyone thinking that the top picture was Tokyo. The world needs to know!

This has come up before. I'm not sure the exact explanation, although it might have to do with some weirdness in how the population of the country doesn't always include the massive number of overseas workers.

That said, nearly 100% of Kuwaiti citizens live in the the Kuwait City agglomeration.

It shouldn't matter, as Kunming has a larger metro population than Kuwait City, by some margin, according to every source I could find, including citypopulation.de
