MOST POPULOUS CITIES WITH A NAME STARTING WITH THE LETTER "Z"

Most of the largest cities with names starting with the letter "Z" are in China (due to the accepted Latin spelling convention that results in a lot of occurrences of "Zh"). Among cities outside of China (and among cities where the Latin alphabet is used as the primary script), Zapopan, Mexico (a suburb of Guadalajara) ranks #1. This list is split into two parts: the top ten largest cities and the top ten largest cities outside of China.
