Which would you choose?

Turpan - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Quito - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

They both have approximately the same average annual temperature but obviously completely opposite climates...

I'd go with Quito as warm winters and stability are important to me

Quito. Even though they both have horrible climates at least it rains in Quito.

Quito by a bit, it's like perpetual Perth winter.

Quito may be too boring. I can visit their for winter/summer vacations, but not live there!

Quito since it is much more comfortable. I think the record highs are somewhere in the 80s. Anyone have reliable data on the records? I saw one data set and it had a dubious record high of 106F for April or May...

Quito for me. Not so much because of the temperatures but because Turpan is simply too dry. I find the desert landscape too boring.

Turpan is a wretched place, nice and cold in the winter but no snow to show for it. Then you get smacked with a summer that would make even ardent heat lovers keel over. Not to mention the perpetual dry that makes Oodnadatta seem like an oasis. No thanks.

So I'll have to go with snowless, staid, but comfortable, Quito (though I still might go crazy).
