    i prefer india's 10 deg Centigrade -20 deg spring autumn and winter weather - comfy and cosy

    when it gets below 5 degrees - as it does sometimes here in south-west europe, it becomes uncomfortable and inconvenient but thankfully that's only a couple of days a year

    ! most of china is below zero for the winter - so not only uncomfortable and inconvenient but in addition to that - UNHEALTHY as well ! arrrrrghhh .... no thanks !!

    the pics show kids and young ...what about those 50 and above or those with imperfect health ? fun ?

    hmmm ...... id better be grateful for our relatively light rain ....rather than tendency to complain

    thanks ......... please post more pics for me to be grateful im not there

    When I was in Japan I thought the kids were cute, especially near Fujiyama where the cold air made their cheeks red. Maybe I can find those photos.

    furthermore we have scientific evidence and now well-known fact that the heat :) hot climates - eg india, israel and southern usa ) and sunshine manufacture chemicals in our bodies such as vit D which are essential to the brain and keep a person mentally active above the age of 45 and the lack of a hot climate eg most of china will slow down mental activity for people above 45 - so this is good news for india, israel and usa and we can expect to see indian, israeli and usa people becoming more intelligent - sorry for those in cold climates eg china.

    20-30 mins exposure to sun is more than enough

    Main function of Vit d is calcium/phosphate absorption

    only half of CHina is below zero in winter.....Usually South China is not colder than west Europe in winters.

    nice point(s) Farhan - but really there are at least two aspects - one is sunshine ( the light of the sun the other is heat - you have written about the first - but the second is just as or more important - so only half - besides we are learning more and more about it

    the traditional European ideas about the cold being better and making skin whiter are being fast abandoned for a more realistic fact that the hot weather is actually better and healthier - so the old euro ideas about placing their capital cities in the colder regions is now being replaced by going to hotter areas eg silicon valley ad in spain, the Seville area ( v hot in summer )

    the southern coastal areas of china can be similar to south europe but that is a relatively small slice of territory - eg up to shanghai ? and even then only the few miles which are coastal - once you go inland, it is no longer a coastal weather

    i believe the guangzhou region in the extreme south of china fully qualifies as being south European and similar to the northern one-third of india in climate

    i fell that there's nothing coincidental about the fact that china 's hottest region ( can be blazing hot in summer ) - the guangzhou region is THE business centre of china and v RICH ?

    Agreed.

    bt there are also problems associated with extensive sun exposed region.such as skin cancer or even hypervitaminosis(rare though).

    Guangdong more like SE Asia than S Europe. It is business center due to Guangzhou and Shenzen in addition to proximity of Hong Kong. We also have the best food in all of China!
