I figure there will be a lot less debate in this thread compared to the Mediterranean thread.
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.

Yes lets at least try and keep to 'Tropical' climates and for that the places have to actually, you know, be IN the Tropics, ie between the Tropic of Cancer and the Tropic of Capricorn, climates outside the Tropics that have a 'Tropical like' climate are Sub-tropical.

Nairobi for me, I could happily live in a place with a climate like this:-

Seriously, I can see that a lot of people living in temperate climates complain about the cold. But while most temperate cities have functional heat facilities, when the temperature surpasses 30C even the most powerful air conditioner may be scarce. It's difficult to sleep and insects are a disturbing issue, even if the environment is always clean.

Well, if Key West counts, then so does Miami. Not sure if considered low crime compared to other cities around the Caribbean rim.


As for Mediterranean climate, I would choose a place on a Mediterranean island on the southern side or the southern tip of the mainland of a northern Mediterranean country, the real Mediterranean, not a far-flung substitute, in a dwelling with southern exposure, like Sicily or Crete or Peloponnesos or Cyprus or Algarve (though technically Atlantic, not Mediterranean).

Good Luck!
