Amazing how Turkey is winning. I thought more people here preferred humid continental climates (which Turkey lacks).

Turkey by far.

Turkey is blessed....between 2 seas at just the right latitudes.
Also lots of micro climates with big elevation changes.

China ....a huge country, with very poor climates.
I don't like most of China's climates, except maybe around Kunming.
Summer monsoon and Siberia high both influence negatively.
Very poor sunshine in the subtropical zone,
very cold and too dry winter in the northern areas.

This part of Turkish Mediteranean coastline averages the warmest Sea Surface Temperatures of the whole Mediteranean in Summer.

China's climates is still way more opressive for the most part.
Istanbul has humid summers too btw.

Turkey by far. It has mediterranean climates, dry continental climates, comfortable warm oceanic climates, and mountains. Very interesting and varied climates, yet nothing too extreme.

China either has super-continental climates with too little snow or cloudy muggy subtropical climates. And the desert continental climates are really a bit too extreme.

I realized that China has subtropical highland climates to the south, which have a pleasant temperature range (albeit too rainy). So let's not forget about those.

Yeah, people forget that China has some tolerable or mild climates.

Turkey has a great selection of climates relative to its size, China on the other hand has very little to write home about, despite being one of the largest nations in the world.

Turkey!

Because China has tropical climate in the south, and severe continental or subartic climate in the north.

I don not like tropical climate, and also I do not like climate with brutal winters such as Hulunbuir in northern China

Winters in Ardahan are pleasant compared to Hulunbuir.
