This is an interesting topic I think. Because some cities may have less density and that will give a "suburbish" feeling. I always hear that people say that Los Angeles feels smaller than it really is. The same with Seoul in South Korea.

Here is the best list in my opinion of the largest cities in the world including their metropolitan populations.

Here the megacities in the world.

What city in your opinion feels smaller than it really is?

Actually NY and Karachi are an example of why it doesn't matter, because NYC feels huge.

Hills, water, availability of highways and rail lines that let sprawl expand further out, are going to influence total metro area density a lot.

NO. Compare NYC with Dhaka, and although Daka has less people (13 Million), it has a land area of 324 km and a population density of 44,500 people per sq km. Unlike NYC, which has a land area of 11,642 km and a population density of only 1,800 people per sq km.
