Turkey is relatively diverse for its small size. Continental in the center (with subarctic influences in the highlands), humid subtropical in the north coast, Mediterranean in the south coast, oceanic to the northeast and semi-arid patches in the southeast. On the other hand, China is mostly humid subtropical in the eastern portion (with monsoon influence), humid continental to the north, tropical wet & dry in the very south, desert in the far west and quasi-subarctic to the north.

Which country has a better climate overall? Of course, I'm going with Turkey for overall being less rainier and humidity, and having no monsoons.

NOTE: This is simply a climate battle thread. Choose the climate(s) that you favour, not the climate that you think is more diverse.

This is a tough one: I prefer the warm side of humid subtropical but China's are too cloudy and have too much continuous heavy rain rather than handsome short lived thunderstorms. Turkey's climates are sunnier so I'll go with them by a hair.

I am not a fan of China, most of the climates are too continental, too monsoonal, or have some other problem. I vote Turkey.

Turkey

Not a fan of China's oppressive summers that are followed by intense winters. With that being said, since Tibet is a part of China I'll say that Lhasa is as good as anything in Turkey, if not better.

A short notice: Not every part of Turkey is dry.
The Eastern Mediteranean coastal cities like Alanya, Iskenderun and Mersin can be very muggy in Summer

Even Adana 40km inland still gets quite muggy.

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.

By dry I meant that they don't have a lot of rain. The Med coast is "dry" in terms of having little to no rain in the summer, but, yes, it is very muggy.

China by light years. They got climates like Sanya and Jinghong that can blow anything Turkey's got out of the water.

What about their subtropical-like, hot Mediterranean climates like Antalya?

They are decent but Sanya and Jinghong are still better. I would even rate Hong Kong as slightly better than Antalya
