What about Seoul?
According to Wikipedia, Seoul has 24,472,063 in its metro area. So it should be the second largest city on the list.

I found that people misunderstand because Seoul has only 10,421,782 in the city area, which is about the same size of NYC(pop. 8,363,710) and Tokyo special wards(pop.8,653,000)

And, Sao Paulo's metro area population is 22,105,060 (2008), not 18.333.000.

I'm just trying to give you the correct numbers although I agree that Wikipedia sometimes can not be a reliable source.

I certainly know Seoul has over 23million in its METRO area, which people are always comparing with. The Tokyo(No.1 populated city on the planet)'s famous number of 36 million is calculated in its metro region as the others. The area of Greater Seoul(11,945km2: Seoul+Incheon+Gyeonggi Region) is approximately the size of Greater Tokyo(13,754 km2: Tokyo +Yokohama+Chiba+South West Kanto Region) or about twice the size of City of Shanghai(6,340 km2 = NYC x 9)
Btw, I think Shanghai(Pop. 18,884,600, slightly larger than Greater New York or New York metropolitan area) is the biggest city by population in China.

The same reason why Chongqing's population must be recalculated for the comparison purpose is because the city area of Chongqing(pop. 31 million) is 82,300 km2 which is twice as large as the Netherlands. means the city is not just as large as Metro area of an ordinary city but is actually larger than a country or some states in the U.S.

Therefore, when people make a list by city's population or some statistics like that, they have to be really careful. Otherwise they will just end up confusing people with wrong numbers.
