Male', capital city of Maldives


The Maldives islands in the Indian Ocean are spread out over a long stretch of the sea, yet they collectively only cover about 300 square km (around 115 square mi.).  Nearly a third of the country's 400k+ inhabitants live in the capital city of Malé, which covers just a few square km/mi. in one of the northernmost of the country's atolls.  Perhaps surprisingly, that makes it one of the most densely populated cities on earth.  Check it out from above in this drone video by top contributor seefromthesky.
