Some of the climates found in China that are listed as humid subtropical are nightmarish. I'll agree that some of the highland climates and most of Tibet looks pleasant all in all but it doesn't make up for the sometimes frightening Shanghai, Beijing, and other places.

Shanghai is basically the upper south with wet summers.

American Shanghai Equivalent: Richmond, Virginia - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Beijing is the interior north with a shorter but rainier wet season.

American Beijing Equivalent: Rapid City, South Dakota - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Beijing: Beijing - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia



I said I thought they were about even, and have some very similar areas. I just don't see China as frightening because I live in America's Cfa myself, and it looks pretty similar other than the dry winters.

I personally think China has far more interesting terrain than the US.

USA for having better warm climates (csa)

I do not like Chinese climates. Either too cold, too cloudy or too humid. Also messed up summers with a monsoon season. USA west coast seems pretty good, just away from the immediate coast and below 40N to avoid the horrificly wet winters.

2.

Boone, North Carolina - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
vs
Lhasa - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Lhasa wins for milder temps, as well as being sunny (the summer rains are short, and it's still sunny during summer, which is why I didn't mind the wet season). Although I do like Boone's more even rain spread much better, it's not enough to give it the win.



3. I like China's options a bit better, it has all the options of the U.S, except a few. They both have east coast climates, tropical climes (Hawaii and Hainan), desert areas (The Gobi and Mojave), etc. While I know America has two coasts, the wet winters ruin it a little (except in Cali, but some of it is too warm), and China has it's own special places in Tibet. Also China does have an equivalent to Alaska, the badly cold northeastern regions, which aren't as cold as Alaska, but pretty nasty in their own right. In the end though, China doesn't win by much. They both have a great variety of options and a good place for (almost) everyone!
I would like to update this based on my current prefrences:

1 and 2.
Nantucket - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
vs
Lhasa - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Nantucket is one of the world's best climates to me. The rainfall and temps are nearly perfect to me. Lhasa is good, but it has too much diurnal range and is dry outside the overly wet summers.







3. They both have many varied options, but I choose the U.S.. They both have east coast climates, tropical climes (Hawaii and Hainan), desert areas (The Gobi and Mojave), etc. While I know America has two coasts, the wet winters ruin it a little (except in Cali, but some of it is too warm), and China has it's own special places in Tibet.

(Notice I changed my choice from China to the U.S.)

The US is slightly more diverse than China.
But the US does not have a place like Turpan, China. Turpan - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

USA has Mediterranean climates. China doesn't have such a thing.

USA wins.
