Not sure how you can get 9 million population for Xiamen, probably counting all neighbouring cities as well. Xi'an would normally be considered a bigger city than Xiamen.

It depends where you draw the urban boundaries for each. To be on the safe side, we'll also accept Xi'an as a type-in.

But Xi'an and Xiamen are very different cities.
+1
Level 75
Apr 27, 2015
Indeed they are. The point is that you could argue that either is the larger city depending on how widely from their centres you draw their boundaries, so to avoid argument we'll accept either answer. We will display Xiamen, whose greater urban area population is definitely greater, as the answer.

So how do two cities have the exact same population? Try researching to get to the nitty-gritty, eliminating one of them.
