Bitlis has a humid continental climate. Don't you think? It snows damn too much in Bitlis. Bitlis is the snowiest provincial capital in Turkey. Bitlis is snowier than Hakkari

Bitlis is NOT a "humid" continental climate. It's a dry-summer continental climate (Dsa).

Yearly precipitation is 1201 mm. It is too much for a continental climate. It is too wet.

By your logic, wet Mediterranean climates (1000mm+) are humid subtropical or oceanic because they're "too wet". Bitlis has dry summers. Its precipitation is focused in winter and early spring. As such, it will be a continental influenced Mediterranean climate or a dry-summer continental climate. The term "humid" is used for wet summer or uniform rainfall continental climates.

Bottom line is Koppen classifies it as Dsa.

For agriculture, most of China is better by far. A rainy, hot summer is the best for rice, wheat and many fruits.
For humans to live, Turkey is better.

China. I hate Medits with burning passion. Turkey has very horrible climate: very hot, sunny and dry summers (humidity isn't always low) and very wet, cloudy and cool winters. China has, at least, good rainfall pattern: wet summers, dry winters. And Chinese summers a bit cooler and China's winters cnn have frost. My favourite Chinese climate is Harbin, though it's bit too cold in winter and a bit too hot in summer. I rate it B-.

Hard for me to choose as China's best climates such as Sanya are much better than anything Turkey has to offer, but China's worst such as Harbin and Turpan are much worse than Turkey's worst, so overall they are probably quite similar.
