Have you ever wondered what is the most populated city in the world? It may be your own town, or it might be one of your favorite cities. It doesn’t matter what the land area of the city measures, what is important here is the estimate of the people living in that particular field.

However, we are referring to the Top 7
Cities by Population in the World. Therefore, a city is based on legal or political boundaries of a locality and its urban status is usually composed of some form of local government. Now, the World Urbanization Prospects defines it as “the population living within the administrative boundaries of a city or controlled directly from the city by a single authority.” This may not include the suburban areas.

The rating was based on the city with the highest population growth. Now, take a look at this list so you may have an idea about the world’s most populous city.

Well, don't get carried away. Hausa may be the most beautiful part of the city. Especially Lagos. That picture is the most beautiful part of the city.
But Tokyo is cool, and Turkey too.

Great photos! I want to ask a question. When you fly to another country or city do you order tickets online? And how about taxi in the airport?

Yes, online booking is very comfortable. I recommend you to order everything in advance, and you won't have any problems. Taxi transfer you can order online before arriving, for example I usually use this service https://gettransfer.com/en
