It looks really messy because the buildings all have different shapes and the colors vary unlike New York where the skyline is neatly laid out with square buildings. At ground level, it would probably look easier to navigate.

Did people mention Middle-Eastern cities? Most of them are quite dense but the buildings are low rise.

It's a 3000 year old invention called a map. Some people rely on GPS to get around?

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.
Many of the densest places in the world are low rise, like paris and Athens, you are confusing height with density, a big fat block of ten storey apartments has more people that slimmer high rises. Groundscrapers hold more people than skyscrapers

It is definitely up there in terms of density with the likes of Tokyo, Paris, and Sao Paulo.
