Culturally if you count Cairo to the Middle East, its Cairo. It has 20+ Million people living there with a rapidly growing population.
But technically/geographically its Africa.

Other then that its Istanbul, Tehran and Baghdad in that order.

Istanbul has 15+ Million people living there. Its huge.

Cairo has got to be the most crowded city i have ever seen, population- and trafficwise.

LA is no match AT ALL and neither is any european city... It has incredible smog is incredibly noisy and traffic jams all around the clock and there are very few working traffic lights and no rules whatsoever. If you have 2 lanes, there are going to be 6 cars etc. lol . It drives you crazy. But the funny thing is, its safe as it gets. I heard there are about 700 murders a year, which is not much for a city with more then 20 Millione people.
From what i heard Istanbul is a lot like that too, but a little less crowded. Ill see, my girls family are from there, so sooner or later im going to visit it.

Here are some impressions of Cairo, where i stayed in 2007.

Its partially europe and partially middle east. Literally, because one half of the city is on the european side and the other one on the Anatolian side.
Its very big and very crowded too, about 15 million people living there.
I was there in 2012....
