CITIES WITH 1 MILLION PEOPLE OR MORE (EACH) WHICH ARE ADJACENT TO EACH OTHER

Here are world cities with one million people or more whose boundaries either touch or are within a few miles of each other (with no significant towns or cities in between the two). Most are suburbs of each other (and Jakarta actually has 3 suburbs with more than one million people), though in a few cases, neither is a suburb of each other, such as San Diego-Tijuana or the two capitals of the two Congos.
