Hong Kong is extremely densely populated, but it covers a tiny area. Has about 7 million. It's global significance comes less from its size than its status as one of the world's great trade hubs and financial centres.

I find it hard to imagine a city of 50,000,000 people, how do they manage the sewers, transport, electricity supply, hospitals, welfare, road maintenance, police etc.

Keep in mind that this is an urban agglomeration. Guangzhou's population includes nearly the entire Pearl River Delta region consisting of Dongguan and Shenzen.

Guangzhou's population does not include Dongguan and Shenzhen, they are different cities in every sense, I live here in Shenzhen and my girlfriend who is a local here is registered in Shenzhen and has nothing to do with Guangzhou. Shenzhen is more part of Hong Kong than anything as it is walking distance (divided by a boarder) in some places.

Am I a giant nerd because when I envision this gigantic agglomeration of urban sprawl it immediately makes me think of the planet Coruscant?

The photo of the Baha'i Lotus Temple in Delhi shows its beautiful structure well. A massive building that is sometimes crowded with sightseers. What amazed me was the system of removing shoes and placing them in an underground storing system that is accessed by a slot at the side of the path. Retrieving your shoes takes only seconds, although they may have thousands of pairs.

I always find it amusing when people say "I come from this place" as if that makes them more knowledgeable about its population. It might make you more knowledgeable about other things to do with the place, but have you counted everyone in London? Anyway, this population is from citypopulation.de. They count any area as one agglomeration if it is continuous "city" (i.e. land that is built on) regardless of where arbitrary and usually unchanging boundaries are drawn. Also it tends to account for the fact that a lot of people who don't reside in London commute there for work. It is entirely possible that at any given time there are at least that many people in an area that can be reasonably defined as "London", regardless of whether or not it overlaps the boundaries of Greater London.
