What are the smallest towns in the world?

A town is a place that is larger than a village but smaller than a city. Even though many people make the mistake of assuming that a town and a city are the same things, this is not the case.

A city is a larger version of a town. It has more amenities like a good transport system, communication, sanitation and housing. A town is also less populated than a city.

There are many differences between them which include economy, geography and demographics.  If you’re curious to know the smallest towns, you’ll soon find out.

There are places in the world that so many people have never even heard of. For example, did you know that the Vatican City is the world’s smallest country with a landmass of 0.44km²?

This list will, however, focus on the top 10 smallest towns in the world.

List Of The 10 Smallest Towns In The World

Fordwich, Population – 381

The town is said to be a remnant market town, in other words, it flourished greatly in the past and probably withstood the great depression era of England.

This town is also a civil parish and can be located today in east Kent, along the Stour River in England.

In 1880, Fordwich lost its standing as a town, after many business corporations stopped operating in the area due to economic reasons and because It didn’t have any mayor again.

It later regained its township status however in 1972. It is the smallest city in England as well as the smallest town in England.

The town maintains a peaceful and serene disposition and is famous for its fishing and angling activities. It has some recreational and infrastructural facilities like drinking pubs, school, churches and a town hall building.

It also has a conservative touch in the sense that the building styles are dated to be very old and preserved.

Manele, Hawaii, Population – 29

Manele, Hawaii

Although Manele is one of the most populated town on our list so far, with a population of 29 people, it is important to note that it is the smallest city in Hawaii.

Who are the private jet owners in Nigeria?

Having a private jet seems to be one of the major ways that various financially elite Nigerians choose to show off their wealth and opulence. It is not an understatement when we tell you that private jet owners in Nigeria belong to a very minute minority in the country.

They range from celebrities to popular businessmen, to even politicians and of course, pastors; who for some reasons are always being criticized for owning private jets.

While no pastor or politician would be criticised here as there is no need for that, we would still do our best to satisfy your curiosity on the matter. We would take a look at these private jet owners, what they do for a living and what types of jet they own.

This curiosity has always been a lingering existence in the minds of the average Nigerians, but it was fuelled to new heights in 2017, during the wedding celebration of the daughter of Ibrahim Babangida in Niger state, when about 30 private jets were said to have touched down in Minna.

These private jets belonged mainly to Nigerian politicians. There are still a lot of Nigerian individuals out there who own a private jet. It is important to know that it costs between $2.3million- $50million on average to buy a private jet and $700,000 to $4million per year, just to maintain.

These figures of course largely depend on the size of the air crafts.
