The truth is most of China is bitterly cold and dry in winter, and more than half of the country is not suitable for rice to grow. In old days, people in north China barely ate any rice.
Most of the eastern part, south of the Yangtze is not "bitterly cold and dry in the winter." More like mild and wet.

It's one summit, just a tip. All the inhabited lands are ****ing hot and humid for 7 months every year, or 8.

You guys were talking about Yushan, not "all inhabited lands." Just admit you read it wrong.

What about Kunming?

I think Taiwan has some awesome climates with wonderfully lush subtropical vegetation most places people live... it's hot and humid in summer but most places I imagine have A/C which is helpful. At least that is how it was when I was in Hong Kong which I imagine isn't all that different from cities in Taiwan.
Kaohsiung is the best climate in Taiwan IMO.
