Neither are good but Riyadh is horrendous! Those summer temperatures are ridiculous. I've experienced a full summer in Baghdad, which is similar temps and there's no way I could live with that.

Alice Springs wins for me.

Definitely Alice Springs because the summers are much cooler (though still too hot) and rainfall is triple that of Riyadh (though still too low).

Alice Springs for the cooler summers and higher rainfall. Riyadh's summers look brutal.

Alice Springs is very much cooler in summer, so I'd choose that.

dunno, both totally sweet climates, but if given a choice I'd go for Alice Springs. Hot and sunshine is very near the top end of the global scale plus it's in a civilised 1st world country which doesn't treat its population like dog crap and you don't get your head chopped off for telling Muhammad that he's nazi prick.

Alice Springs gets a lot of thunderstorms in summer which increase its average rainfall.
