Hong Kong Population Density

S9EEgdrl.jpg (640×311)Over the summer, two sets of maps showing population density went viral. Each of the them demonstrated how much land would be required for the entire human race if everyone lived at a similar density as a chosen country. However, Hong Kong – which has one of the highest population densities in the world – was not included.

Thus, Hong Wrong did the maths and below is a map showing how Earth’s entire human population could relocate to Egypt if they adopted HK’s high-rise lifestyle…

Mongkok is home to 130, 000 people per square kilometre, whilst Hong Kong itself boasts 6, 544 people per square kilometre.

Yet most of Hong Kong is countryside – less than a third of the territory is urbanised…

The highest population density at which humans have ever lived would be within the old Kowloon Walled City.
