Kowloon Walled City (ף, originally known as ף):

In 1987, the Walled City of Kowloon had 50,000 inhabitants on 0.026 km, and therefore a very high population density of 1,900,000 / km.

Compare this with the rest of Kowloon (itself, one of the highest population densities on the planet):

In modern day, Kowloon (ף lit. nine dragons) when unqualified refers to the southern part of the Kowloon Peninsula in Hong Kong. Population (2000): 2,071,000. Population density: 44,000 people/km. Together with Hong Kong Island, it contains 47% of Hong Kong's total population.
