Cities of the future will be bigger, more crowded, but the question, will they be more efficient? That is the question that lingers when you talk about cities that are just enormous.

Megacities are the trend of the future. Megacities are very large city metropolitan areas, and they have a population of more than 10 million people.

There are many megacities in the world, but China is the leader. China has more than 15 megacities, the largest having more than 30 million inhabitants, like Shanghai.

Speaking of Shanghai, it is the biggest city in China, and the biggest port in the world. Shanghai also has the longest underground railway system.

Shanghai is the symbol of China’s rise to a super power on the international stage. This documentary shows what life in the megacity looks like.
