Turpan - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Jiujiang - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Both don't look too nice.

If I had to pick though, it'd probably be Jiujiang as one could grow things more easily. Jiujiang also has the highest average monthly temperature I could find in China for a Cfa climate at 94F/79F for July.

Neither really as both have winters which are far colder than my ideal. If I had to choose, I'd definitely choose Jiujiang because it has much milder winters than Turpan while benefitting from slightly cooler summers. Turpan's heat in summer is a bit over the top even for me.

Jiujiang easily wins this.

Jiujiang is similar to my dream climate temperatures for all 12 months of the year. I prefer if summer had lows a bit lower and being drier, and more precipitation for parts of Mid Autumn to Mid spring, but it is still a great B+ climate.

Areas of East Central China and Central Japan have such great 4 season climates such as Shanghai, Tokyo, Jiujiang, Nanchang, Kanazawa, and Niigata.

^^I also find Jiujiang very pleasant for similar reasons. Turpan's extreme aridity is a huge negative for me as well.

Noticed a lot of one-sided comparisons lately...definitely Jiujiang.

Juijiang for the precipitation. Winters look pleasant enough. I would guess Jiujiang is also cloudier.

Jiujiang is extremely humid and hot in the summer.

Turpan is fascinating. Colder average January lows than Moscow, yet higher average March highs than Nice...

Regarding the OP's poll, I'd probably go for Jiujiang which has more pleasant months (say, April to October).

I love Turpan's over the top "continentality" too! As cold or colder than Moscow in January and as hot as Dubai in July!

However, it really could do with a little more precipitation! C
Jiujiang is too humid for my taste - D.

I would find Turpan more impressive if it had at least 20x the precipitation. Dunno why, I guess I expect desertic places to get ridiculous temperatures.
I go for Jujiang, its summers are over the top and humid but Turpan's extreme aridity is unacceptable.
