Beijing and Shanghai
The two largest cities in China, which itself has the largest population of all countries in the world.
Now remember, I go by metropolitan area population on this channel so just calm down there, son. Based on that, Shanghai is the largest, with almost 27 million people! That’s more than the population of Australia, for crying out loud. By the way, you could fit 1,213 Shanghais in Australia. As I said a bit earlier, Beijing is the second largest in China, with 20.4 million people.
Both are bustling, modern, global cities and yes…two of the most influential cities in the world. And of course, the two cities have heavily influenced the culture of the rest of China for decades, although Beijing has dominated it for far longer. More on that later on.
They're about 1,066 km, or 662 miles apart. Or about a two hour flight apart. Or about an 11 and a half hour road trip.
Both are direct-administered municipalities in China, which means they have the same rank as provinces.
The biggest ethnic group in both is Han Chinese. The majority of residents in both cities are not religious and apparently atheists.
