I think Taipei is technically classified as subtropical and not tropical.

So what is your favourite city with a tropical climate?

My favourite city with a tropical climate is Singapore.
Great climate. Low crime. Awesome food. Culturally diverse and close to other great destinations in Asia.
The problem with Singapore is that it’s getting hotter to a point where years ahead it may endanger one’s health. Even now with the high humidity It can be uncomfortable. The problem is due to global warming and also high density building construction.

Global warming causes sea temperatures and humidity to rise. This is especially concerning for a small island totally surrounded by water. And then there is the huge amounts of heat absorbed and radiated out by concrete and steel office buildings and housing estates.

Yeah global warming is a concern for the whole planet. Singapore is not exempted from this but they are a rich nation that will have more financial means to help mitigate some of the effects of climate change.

Panama City for me. IMO the most developed city in Latin America.

I can't think of many temperate cities in North America that don't have A/C infrastructure to handle 3C2/90F. Vancouver/Seattle, maybe. A lot of older houses don't have A/C but any commercial space does. The Vancouver high temperature record is 34.4C/94F. 30C is pretty unusual.


My frame of reference is Boston. 90F happens for a few weeks every summer. Everything is air conditioned.
