hmmm... difficult to say for definite...

Cities that come to mind;
- Buenos Aires
- New York City (Manhattan)
- Shanghai
- Shenzen
- Tokyo


When talking about lowrise flat density - Los Angeles is definitely up there.

But for midrise urban overspill, I think Buenos Aires wins it.

If it is general urban density... Tokyo wins.

Again! We have very specific guidelines to follow regarding posting Flickr photos. Please review Yellow Fever's stickied instructions on the front page of the forum as this is how Flickr wants us to do this if we are to continue using them or else they will make all the photos disappear from the website.

Also, guys please do not post such huge photos. They really bog down the thread.

What's so dense about that? All those homes DON'T have anyone above them. Last I checked, density basically means limited space...thus people living on top of each other in a limted space -- not because they're spread out that it becomes dense.

This whole thread is getting ridiculous becuz there really are basically just 3 or 4 VERY dense metropolises in the world (NYC, HKG, Sao Paulo and Chongquing). And the 2 densest nations in the world (Bangladesh and the Netherlands) where many people are crammed in the limited land--but they're still NOT living 10, 20 storeys atop each other as in the aforenamed cities.

I didn't know this was Bangkok until I clicked on the photographer's photostream.

I think the intention of the forumer was to show you the size of the CBD/urban core in relationship with the entire area of the city. If you have not seen pictures of Buenos Aires' CDB then you are totally in the dark about this city's density. It is definitely up there in terms of density with the likes of Tokyo, Paris, and Sao Paulo.
