World’s Most Densely Populated Cities

Forbes recently ran a feature on the world’s most densely populated cities. It came as no surprise that cities in the world’s most two most populated countries, China and India, showed up repeatedly.

Below are photos of the cities on the list I’ve taken. New York was no where to be found. This comes as no surprise. After returning from any of these cities Gotham always seems empty.

Checking in at No. 1 is Mumbai (Bombay) India. Below is a street scene photographed near the Gateway of India.

Taipei, Taiwan ranked 7th. This photograph is of the city center.

Shanghai, China was 10th. Here is an overview of its smoggy skyline.

Beijjng, China is in 12th place. This was taken near Tiananmen Square on National Day.

Delhi, India was 13th. With 14.3 million people even Delhi seems less crowded when compared to Mumbai.

For a list of all the cities check out the Forbes feature here.

I had the same thought. I was also surprised Tokyo didn't make the list.
