Guess the city: "Am I hot or cold?"

This is an interesting game I came up with where you need to guess the city I'm thinking and I will respond if you are close enough. Here are the basics:
  1. Give a list of 3-5 characteristics for the city, OR use a satellite snapshot of the city
  2. Try to say its continent or country depending on how difficult you think it will be to guess it
  3. Depending on replies, some cities may be closer guesses. For example, if my criteria or image referred to a city in the Mediterranean and I'm thinking of Tripoli, Tunis would be getting "warmer" while Athens would be getting "colder," or further from the city.
  4. As a member approaches the country or continent the city is located in (such as Benghazi for Tripoli), they are getting "hotter."
  5. If you feel that it is becoming difficult you can drop a "hint," or another clue
  6. If they guess the city then they are correct and that person has the opportunity to begin the next round

I'll start:
  1. Has casinos
  2. Is near a body of water
  3. Has a beach

Good Luck!

New Rule 3/16/15: You can now guess 3 countries, but 1 city per country if you are right.
New Rule 10/23/15: Any ambiguous territories (disputed territories, SARs, overseas territories, etc.) will be deemed as separate from the main country.

Note 4/15/15: Using "yes" and "no" to describe proximity is generally discouraged. Please try and use temperature values!
