Tokyo is populated, not overpopulated because they're the most organized group of people on this planet.

I have never been but I am guessing perhaps one of the big cities in Vietnam, or Jakarta.

Metro Manila has almost 13 million people in 620 sq km. So its population density is 21,000 people per sq km. Same population density as Mumbai, but also the same density as Paris. So it just goes to show that it's less about overpopulation and more about infrastructure adequate enough for the population

That is true, however you really need to compare apples to apples, Paris city has 2 million people, at a density of 21,000 per square km, the whole metro area is far less dense than that.

The city of Manilla itself has 1.8 million people at 71,000 people per square km.

Through i agree generally with the adequate infrastructure , i regularly travel to Seoul, the city itself which has almost 10 million people at 16,000 per square km, and it is remarkably well organised.

Metro Manila isn't a traditional metropolitan area where you have 1 main city surrounded by a bunch of suburbs. The cities in Metro Manila are comparable to the boroughs of NYC or the wards of Tokyo. All of Metro Manila, not just Manila city, functions as the capital of the Philippines. It's all the National Capital Region, similar to D.C. in the US, or D.F. in Mexico. Manila city by itself is tiny, only 43 sq km, and it's not even the most important city there. What I really hate is when people say "Manila has 12 million people and is the most densely populated city in the world" They're usually the population density of just Manila city, while using the population of Metro Manila. It's for dramatic effect, I guess.


Seoul is also in a first world country. Cities in 1st world countries, even if they're very densely populated, are almost always going to be better organized with better infrastructure.

Bogota is overpopulated for its size. Its one of the highest density cities in the world with over 60,000 people/km2.
