We all know , megacities are cities with more than 8 million inhabitans (UN definition) ,there are also alot of megacities ! but for me a megacity is more a.) urbainaty flair (culture ,cinemas , restauranst ,etc..) b.) finance (stock markets , finance jonglours) b.) headquarters ( Daimler benz,Deutsche bank, merril lynch etc... ) d) a good infrastructure (streets, highways , underground and an airport) so for me real megacities are Sao Paulo , NYC ,Tokyo ,London,paris,LA Tokyo,Shanghai Chicago ,Toronto,milano and Osaka

7.4 million, 9 if you count the area spread into the US. Milan and Osaka, also mentioned there, have less then 8 million.

Anyway, Klas i think what you must be thinking of is a Global City

I think a "megacity" is either considered just a huge city with an excess of 10 million people, or multiple cities merged into one.

Does Toronto have more than 8 million inhabitants? I am not disagreeing, but it may not fit the dictionary definition.
