Hilo:




Ideally, though, I'd prefer more sunshine.

Turpan is very famous for grapes and raisins.
Chinese people also consider Turpan people good looking.

In these climate battle threads, are we to consider physical geography? That's sort of part of climate. Obviously, we don't consider socioeconomics. If so, I choose Hilo--as long as I have air conditioning, it's no problem living there. The rain would get kind of annoying, but the beach looks nice when it's sunny. The scenery is much more appealing than a desert. Turpan has a brutal climate, especially in summer. And though winters are nice and cold, they're remarkably short and snowless. By April, the average high is already 80 degrees! I choose the wet, rainy, tropical place over the dry place with long, brutal summers and short, brisk winters.

80 degrees with low humidity is very pleasant even 90 degrees.

Maybe to you, but not to me. 80 with low humidity is tolerable to me, but I wouldn't call it pleasant. But my point was it warms up way too fast in Turpan for my liking, not to mention gets way too hot and stays that way too long.

Hilo. Been there several times and it's always been sunny with beautiful puffy clouds. The rain usually doesn't screw up your day. Plus, everything is so green and lush.

But, I agree with Hawaii4Ever, ideally, I'd prefer more sun.

Turpan wins by a landslide. It's sunnier and much more interesting temperature wise. If it had more snow in winter, it would be great.

Both climates are terrible. But I vote for Turpan, because I do not like tropical climate.

Hilo - temps are always comfortable and rain is heavy and frequent. Turpan is the second worst climate I've seen after the south pole.
