That bridge picture of Chengdu, China looks amazing 😍
It's insane to me how most of these cities have a larger population than my entire country. It's hard to grasp how it must be living in a city with so many people.
Censorship capital😂 Some title to hold
I watch geography videos and i have heard of this cities:
why did you skip Kuala Lumpur?
Chongquing. Meanwhile Hitman 3 players where this is one of the maps. Come again?
You know about these chinese cities if you've been watching ADV China.
Chongqing is also the most visually arresting city in China if not the world -built where two rivers and three ranges meet, and absolutely riddled with 3,000 bridges + tunnels, zip lines, monorails, underground cities and cable cars built in and around the undulating land and ciffs. The banks of the rivers are 250-400ft high. Think Rio meets Bladerunner, especially at night when the neon and lightshows come on and the street markets come alive – looked down on by the rest of China for being gritty still, it's loved by foreigners for precisely that Bladerunner feel -and why computer games like Cyberpunk 2077 and the new Hitman series are modelled of or set there. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O1eh1orEjYc&t=32s
It's a shame you missed what Nanjing's famous for – history -with a huge amount of old buildings, temples and the longest city wall in existence. Its a Chinese megacity that still looks like ye Olde China, despite a huge skyscraper centre too
The location of Chongqing marked at twenty-two seconds into the video is incorrect. The location you marked is in Guizhou province, and Chongqing is north of Guizhou.
I've been to Guangzhou and Shenzhen. Guangzhou used to be called Canton and the Cantonese language is still being used in southern China.
My friends made me memorise some of African country capitals, so I have technically heard of Luanda before. Also, I have friends who are from Guangzhou, but otherwise, I don't know much about the other cities (until now)
We need a video without China
I knew all of them. You know nothing John Beautiful.
Y'all fr gonna skip over Jakarta, the second largest metropolitan area on earth set soon to overtake Tokyo, and is on the literal brink of S i n k i n g ?
You skipped the great Johannesburg South Africa, your info lacks credibility.
WOOOOOOW that was a lot of glossing over you did about Angola, sure sounded lovely didn't it
Everything you describe is understood but still a confusion, why your tooth are so pale/yellow.
Hong Kong, “china”
L O L very friendly
Chongqing has a metro population of like 40 million btw so it's bigger than Shanghai, Guangzhou etc…
How could no one know about Shenzhen when 90% of the world's technology is manufactured there?
Did you really have to put 16745 Chinese cities (got boring quickly)? Pretty sure most people in the West don't know about Dhaka, Karachi, Ahmedabad, Lahore, Bengalore, Kinshasa, Lagos, Kolkata or Hyderabad. You should do a part 2 with South Asian cities and a part 3 with African ones.
Why do you always sound so out of breath? 💀
