A1: I think it was the hottest when we were in Indonesia. Yogyakarta was probably the hottest place for us there. I think it was 1,000 degrees, honestly.

A1. Dubai for one, although I missed its notorious 50c+++122f+++, with humidity. Death Valley, etc. Dubai air conditions its bus shelters. #humane #culturetrav

#CultureTrav A1. Chichen Itza in Mexico. It was so hot, I sweated through every piece of clothing! Not attractive. We've never been that hot before and we lived in Florida!

A3: I would rather be somewhere that is too cold! You can layer clothes, get a comfy blanket, and sit by a fire!
Hot is hard to escape unless you have air conditioner. #CultureTrav @Nicolette_O @travelcricket8 #Travel

replying to @always5star @always5star @traveling_gals @Nicolette_O I went to the Keys in the summer and loved it, but yeah, it was stifling. And we were camping (so no ac). Just leaning into it and embracing the constant glisten on my skin #CultureTrav
