Indeed. Blantyre is the biggest city in Malawi with a population around 646,235, and Lilongwe has a population around 597,619. I was really amazed with Blantyre since it's a city I rarely heard or seen anything about.

Great photos! How many people are living in Lilongwe? It looks quite small but orderly!

Solid pics. Malawi doesn't look too bad considering how poor it is. I hear it's been growing decently as well.

Both cities look OK regarding Malawi is one of the poorest country in the world.

I have been to Malawi and I can say that this is a fair assessment. I must add though that yes they are good, but cannot be compared to Cities like Nairobi (Where I have been) or Abuja

nice shots, Lilongwe amazes me considering that Malawi is officially one of the poorest countries on earth, this city looks in a good shape

Adebayao, comparing Lilongwe to cities like Abuja and Naiorbi is ridiculous, come on, how many inhabitants does Lilongwe have?

Matthias

I must say that Lilongwe and Blantyre can compare with second tier cities in Nigeria, such as Umuahia, Ilorin and Mombasa in population, but a bit behind in infrastructure.
By the way, Blantyre is a bigger city than Lilongwe.
