Another nice quiz! Hanoi? 6 million when I was there last year, although citypopulation.de says only 2.9 mil, which must be some admin boundary that doesn't take the contiguous urban area into account.

Yes, I thought it would be on the list. I also thought of Mashhad but it seems to be a bit short... the numbers on wikipedia are absurd though, giving a city population inferior to the metro population.

The city population has to be lower than the metro population

I agree, otherwise it would just be a quiz on naming the second biggest cities.

I thought Berlin would be in the list because according to Citypopulation it's the second biggest urban area of Germany, with 4.35 million inhabitants.

Please also allow the spelling Jidda(h).

When I check, citypopulation gives Berlin as the largest with 'only' 3.4 million.

That's city proper though. The largest urban area in Germany is the Rhine-Ruhr area.

I've just moved here. It's the fastest growing city in Australia apparently. If it is growing faster than the Gold Coast, it must be booming indeed.
