Male, Maldives

Malé (މާލެ), pronounced Maa-leh, is the capital of Maldives. The city occupies the entire islet of Malé at the southern rim of North Malé Atoll.

The island is 1.87 km long and 1.5 km wide, but with more than 200,000 people crammed onto it, Malé is by some measures the world's densest city. The new island of Hulhumalé, built (as the name says) between Malé and Hulhulé (the airport island), has been reclaimed from the sea to provide some much-needed extra space.
