I think you will find this Wiki article interesting, it has a list of all urban area's with a population of 1 million or more, and another list of countries by how many cities with 500,000+, 1,000,000+, 2,000,0000+, and 5,000,000+

Welcome To The Magical Hidden Treasures Of Vietnam! Verify these claims:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Templa...ies_of_Vietnam

Saigon Ho Chi Minh 8,244,400 (Between 8 to 9 Million Individuals)

Hanoi 7,379,300 (7 to 8 million)

Hải Phng 1,946,000 (I Never Even Heard Of These Before!? (Hải Phng, Cần Thơ, Bin Ha, Đ Nẵng)

Cần Thơ 1,238,300

Bin Ha 1,104,495

Đ Nẵng 1,007,700

Nha Trang 393,218

Bun Ma Thuột 350,000

Huế 337,554

Vinh 330,000

I just can’t believe Thailand has nothing outside of Bangkok in terms of mega city standards to qualify while Vietnam has this much widely encompassing variety. At least 6 major communities past one million people.

Here's a list of countries by the number of urban areas they have >1 million, and on a per capita basis too. It's not going to be exactly per capita because the numbers end up super tiny, so this will be the formula (#cities/population)*1,000,000

Country: #cities / per capita

China: 101 / 0.073
India: 59 / 0.045
USA: 43 / 0.132
Brazil: 18 / 0.087
Russia: 13 / 0.089
Mexico: 13 / 0.105
Nigeria: 11 / 0.057
Japan: 9 / 0.071
Pakistan: 9 / 0.045
Iran: 7 / 0.087
Germany: 7 / 0.085
Turkey: 7 / 0.088
Columbia: 6 / 0.122
Canada: 6 / 0.164
UK: 5 / 0.076
South Korea: 5 / 0.097
Saudi Arabia: 5 / 0.143
Democratic Republic of the Congo: 5 / 0.061
Iraq: 5 / 0.131
South Africa: 5 / 0.089
Australia: 5 / 0.203

if you want a long list of big cities, these are the countries you should focus on, any country >0.1 has a lot of cities considering it's size, and countries <0.5 have very little.

There is a not accurate genuine flaw in that entire system. Starting with Indonesia’s own significant omitting arbitrarily outside of the elite records. There are minimum of 10 cities encompassing more than one million people each over there, possibly up to around 14 of these label identities. According to city, population, island or province: I. Jakarta Indonesia 10,012,271 (10 to 11 million people) Java, II. Surabaya 2,843,14 East Java, III. Bandung 2,575,478 West Java, IV. Medan 2,497,183 Sumatra, V. Bekasi 2,510,951 Java, VI. Semarang 2,067,254 Central Java, VII. Tangerang 2,001,925 Banten West Java(Wow! 7 Cities Of Indonesia above 2 million citizens), VIII. Depok 1,869,681 West Java, IX. Palembang 1,561,959 Sumatra, X. South Tangerang 1,436,187 Java, XI. Makassar 1,398,801 Sulawesi, XII. Batam 1,142,646 Riau Islands, XIII. Pekanbaru 1,030,732 Riau, XIV. Bogor 1,022,002 West Java! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_o..._by_population Ambivalent whether Indonesia is quite compressing dense technically at least around just regular enough occasions with having all of these major dots of urbanization on their own specific maps.

Canada's Largest 20 Urban Areas (With Attachments Listed to Those Metros Within 100 Miles of the Big 2 (Toronto/Montreal)

1. Toronto 5,429,524
2. Montreal 3,519,595
---Very Nearly 25% of CA's population
3. Vancouver 2,264,823
4. Calgary 1,237,656
5. Edmonton 1,062,643
6. Ottawa 989,657 (104 Miles From Montreal)
7. Winnipeg 711,925
---Roughly 42% of CA's population (first 7)
8. Quebec City 705,103
9. Hamilton 693,645 (35 Miles From Toronto)
10. Kitchener 470,015 (56 Miles From Toronto)
11. London 383,437 (102 Miles From Toronto)
12. Victoria 367,770 (60 Miles From Vancouver)
13. Halifax 316,701 (Most Populated Canadian City Along Atlantic Seaboard, and for 400 miles as bird travels, QC)
14. Oshawa 308,875 (30 Miles From Toronto)
15. Windsor 287,069 (Largest Canadian City Sharing Direct Foreign Border)
16. Saskatoon 245,181
17. Saint Catharines-Niagara 229,246
18. Regina 214,631: Saskatoon and Regina would seem to almost have a rivalry of sorts for "the city" of their region. Maybe
19. Saint John's 178,427 (The one I REALLY want to make it to. Looks Uber-European with stunning landscape)
20. Kelowna 151,957

Conclusion: A few cities dominate in Canada, but especially Toronto does. It's lead and size is even bigger than initially evidenced with the other places surrounding it. I would be curious at who would take a stab at Canada's Big 10/Top 10 overall in terms of power, feel, etc. because the fact that some that are candidates are de facto Toronto suburbs makes it more complex. I think the Top 8 is quite clear, but who do you pick for the last two? I tend to think geographic isolation increases a places importance in relation to others, so my 9 would probably be Halifax, and my #10 would probably be either Victoria, or the one that comes out of the Saskatoon/Regina battle.

Pretty good assessment. Number 9 is definitely Halifax IMO.


Not sure there is a clear choice for number 10. London is quite a bit out of the orbit of Toronto, certainly as much as Victoria is out of Vancouver's. Saskatoon is larger than Regina but the latter carries a lot of weight by virtue of being that province's capital. Plus it has the football team!

Canada is also fairly multi-polar due to its size and dispersed population.


Toronto is very dominant economically but not as dominant as you might think in other respects.


Vancouver gets a bit of breathing room due to its distance but its dominance of the large area of "the West" is not that great as other cities like Calgary, Edmonton and Winnipeg are poles for their respective hinterlands.


For primarily linguistic and historic reasons Montreal dominates Quebec completely (leaving arguably little room for Toronto except behind the scenes economically ) as well as French-speaking areas in New Brunswick and on the eastern fringes of Ontario.
