I have been to Hong Kong, Beijing, and Tianjin in summer during the 90s. It was very hot and humid. Beijing too. I thought Beijing be less hot and humid especially by the Great Wall, but no.

Also the Highlight Green color is not in the legend.

Taiwan's climate is similar to Hong Kong's climate, which is ****. Period. Yes it doesn't rain that much in Kaohsiung but it's almost always extremely hot and the pollution is horrifying.


Awesome climates exist in Spain and Australia, not here.
Nope, the poster is correct; Taiwan and Hong Kong have wonderful climates. The humid subtropical climate is very great, wet summers to minimize evaporation in the hottest times, then drier winters. Very stable in temperatures.

The forest-green color (parts of Yunnan, and southern Tibet) is not explained in the key

The cartographer needs to identify / explain what climate these 3 colors represent.
This map contains a more complete listing; all the colors are in the legend.

Yellowish-green = Humid subtropical without dry season (Cfa)

Light-green = Humid subtropical with dry season (Cwa)

Dark-green = Subtropical highland (Cwb)

Green = Temperate Oceanic (Cfb)

Stable in temperatures, unstable in everything else, such as the typhoons.

Typhoons don't strike every year, do they?

Hong Kong no, but Taiwan yes, and several per year. We had 3 in the span of three weeks this September/October.

Asia has no decent weather. The summers which dominate pretty much most of the continent lingers on between 6-8 months and the humidity is just stifling.

Most of China has 3~4 months for summer. Pretty similar to most of America.

Shanghai's winters seemed similar to San Francisco's: bone-chillingly damp and cold, with no snow. However, the summers were hot and humid - but not intolerable - and relatively short (a few months). No noticeable 4 seasons, with the attendant changes in foliage.

Beijing felt like it had a more extreme continental climate. The winter I was there it was frigidly cold with drier air, similar to Minnesota winters. As a result, they have numerous eateries and shops located in connected, underground malls, similar to those found in other very cold places around the world. The summers I've heard are hot and humid.


Sanya is warm year-round and semi-tropical, similar to Hawaii. In fact, it is a top vacation destination for many locals looking for a similar experience of sandy beaches, resorts and tropical relaxation.
