Yeah, this figure includes the whole pearl river delta region, which is one of the densest populated regions on earth. Guangzhou is still huge though.

I've been following Guangzhou ever since they started building that TV Tower a couple years ago...very respectable city indeed, even if Shanghai Tower will be taller.

I had to update this quiz because Moscow and Vladivostok changed time zones. Unfortunately, the quiz is much harder now.

Well, this opened my eyes! I am from the -6:00 time zone in the US (central time), and I was convinced that the quiz was broken because it wouldn't accept Chicago. It didn't even occur to me to extend my view all the way south. Respect, Mexico!

Great quiz. I agree with the question, why do so many people know Baku? Bizarre.

Santiago is UTC-3, not -4. The largest city in UTC-4 is Santo Domingo at 2.9 M.

This is correct. Even though Santiago should, by geography, be UTC-5, it is UTC-3, like São Paulo.

DST affects what you read on your clock but it does not change which time zone your are in.

If time zone is defined/named only as time difference, than you do change time zones.

For -6:00, I kept trying Chicago until I realized how US-centric was being. Also, this quiz needs way more time.

this is a good one because you can't simply rely on your map knowledge as time zones are not always, well, never parallel to longitude.

So 55,000 constitutes a major city? I think that one would be very hard for people to get. Even Praia in Cape Verde is pretty much off the radar for most people.

Missed ten. Sao Paulo, Caracas, Santiago and all of the cities under 1M. Damn South America! Know all of the three, but that was impossible for me to realize their actual locations, distances and zones.

Pyongyang needs to be added, a caveat that winter time is meant here, and +11:30 can be removed as Norfolk switched to +11.
