No, Jakarta is, in terms of population. But Bangkok is one city right? I dont really know if Metro Population is the one you're asking for.

hmm, since when did china/HK become SEA?
Okay, I am sorry - I just put the neighbouring Chinese cities in because they are much more integrated in the SEA area by economy and trade (HK-Bangkok-Singapore are the big port-triangle) than to the rest of China, Taiwan, Korea or Japan. Theoretically South China is part of SEA (forget national borderlines - Russia, Colombia, Turkey lie even on different continents ;))

And anyway: what harm does it do to have some more cities in the area as a comparisment? :cheers:

It just make the fact that Bangkok is not the largest more clear--- Jakarta is the largest city all around Asia, except Seoul, Shanghai, Beijing and Tokyo.

South China is act as the Central part of the Asia portion of the Pacific rim. And, Hong Kong still holds a very prominent position as a city with free economy which is largely influenced by both Southeast Asia, East Asia and China.

Nope :) Although it's arguable that Greater Manila is larger than Jakarta. In the statistics, Manila's metro area is only counted as Metro Manila. But if you include Bulacan, Cavite, Rizal and Laguna, they form one huge metro area. And alot of these places are very urbanized.

Hong Kong, Shenzhen and Guangzhou don't count as South East Asian cities.

Keusel,
Where is that Shenzhen metropop. figure from? Which cities are included in Shenzhen's metro? The Guangzhou numbers look correct.

I would say Bangkok metropolitan areas has well over 10 million people (don't have any facts at all to back it up, though). :)

My numbers are from citypopulation.de - it's not always the most accurate source, but still one of the best. Otherwise you have to check the statistics of the very countries themselves and that takes time ;)

About Bangkok: afaik the Thai statistics also measure a metro area of 10-11mio. But that makes it still smaller than Jakarta or Manila.

hkg could be considered se-asia but most considers it within the orient
kowloon isn't a city ... and hong kong only has 7million people ... and it has no metro ... gz metro probably has more than that ...
shenzhen metro probably exceeded that number already ...

The size and ranking depend on what you mean by "city". Southeast Asian countries do not have census-defined metropolitan statistical areas. Following the model of the US, the metropolitan area should be between the urban area and the administrative division (or group of divisions) encompassing the urban area. Figures are for the year 2000 unless otherwise indicated.

Jakarta
-DKI: 8,389,000 (660 km2)
-Urban: 14,250,000 (1360 km2)
-Including surrounding kabupaten/kota: 21,607,000 (7320 km2)

Manila
-Metro Manila: 9,906,000 (640 km2)
-Urban: 14,750,000 (1400 km2)
-Including surrounding provinces: 17,876,000 (7620 km2)

Bangkok
-Krung Thep: 6,355,000 (1570 km2)
-Urban: 6,325,000 (1010 km2)
-Including surrounding manakhon: 10,159,000 (7760 km2)

Kuala Lumpur
-Federal district: 1,379,000 (240 km2)
-Urban: 3,800,000 (1610 km2)
-Including Selangor and Putra Jaya: 5,246,000 (8200 km2)

Bandung
-Kota: 2,290,000 (170 km2)
-Urban: 3,000,000 (220 km2)
-Including kabupaten: 6,908,000 (2220 km2)

Singapore
-Urban: 4,000,000 (480 km2)
-Country: 4,018,000 (700 km2)
-Including Johor-Bahru (in Malaysia): 5,083,000 (~1400 km2)

Ho Chi Minh (as of 1999)
-Urban: 4,900,000 (520 km2)
-Municipality: 5,034,000 (2100 km2)

Yangon (2005 estimates)
-Urban: 3,594,000 (350 km2)
-Taing (larger administrative division): 5,560,000 (10170 km2)

Surabaya
-Urban: 2,600,000
-Including kabupaten: 4,160,000

Medan
-Urban: 2,000,000
-Including kabupaten: 4,260,000

Riton,
Looks like a good list right there.

Keusel,
Yes, Jakarta and Manilla are definately the largest cities in South East Asia. Bangkok is the largest 'mainland' city. I believe Guangzhou's metropolitan area is larger than that of Shenzhen's.
