It's funny how most people seem to be selecting areas with cold climates. I'm the opposite. Although -45 is certainly not to my liking, hot weather and I don't get along, so areas such as the Eastern African Interior would be off my bucket list for sure.

I'd say Middle East, generally speaking, from Egypt to Pakistan. The worst areas are, in my opinion, the red sea coasts (hot and humid all year long, winters included), the Persian Gulf coasts and the Indus Valley in Pakistan. The latter is among the oldest inhabited regions in the world thanks to the water of the Indus river, despite its desert climate with its unbearably hot and humid summers (although in the past the temperatures may have been a little lower).

Simple, anywhere with extreme cold or extreme hot climates.

Among inhabited areas my 3 worst are;

1) Sichuan basin area of China, particularly Chongqing - barely 1000 hours of sun yearly combined with wet, sultry summers and cloudy, dry winters that hardly ever get frost or snow. Mid-latitude East Asia in general is bad for me as the precipitation pattern is all wrong, but at least the northern part gets half-decent winters with some sunshine.

2. The NW Europe Cfb/Cfc zone- UK, Ireland, SW Norway, Faeroes- too cloudy year round especially in summer when sunshine is very low indeed considering the day length.

3. Coasts of Peru and Ecuador- cloudy, dry for months.

Palm Springs is pretty ugly. You can't even be outdoors in the daytime half of the year. A similar climate is central Saudi Arabia.

They made Hell hot for a reason.

For all the scorching hot desert climates, all of them have fairly a lengthy comfortable season. Coastal Europe's far north has to have the worst climate in the world for me.

-Siberia and Canada for short summers and very cold winters.
-Middle East, Death Valley or Sahara for the deadly summers.
-India, Thailand or Indonesia for the monsoon and extreme heat index.

The entirety of Asia north of 45.

The entire southern hemisphere south of 50.

But, these are fairly predictable for a cold-hater.

I'm really not fond of eastern North America ( i.e east of the Rockies ). Much of the northern half is unusually cold for the latitude, and once one gets far enough south, it's still so much more variable compared to similar climates in the old world and the southern hemisphere. As far south as southern Texas and central Florida, one can get intense cold snaps for the latitude, and a very high day to day variation exists over the whole region.
