Every cities have their summers and winters. The only difference are in temperatures.

In my opinion Manila has a winter except it's warmer compared to cities like HK or Shanghai.

A 30C winter isn't much different from a 33C summer. The notion of the 4 seasons is virtually nonexistent, especially in tropical cities. Think Hanoi, Singapore, Bangkok, and Kuala Lumpur to start.

I remember visiting KL in February and it was 30C every day. Bangkok wasn't much better in March. The temperatures were pretty much the same the next time I visited in August.

Even northern Florida can get a light dusting of snow once in a rare while. That's when the orange juice futures and weather derivatives go wild.

It's quite common that Hong Kong sees temperatures hover around 3C once a winter. There can even be frost at Tai Mo Shan.

Yes I hear that there is sometimes hail in The New Territories but I don't see it since I rarely go there.

If you pay attention to the news around Chinese New Year, the coldest day of the year is usually the top story. People even flocked to Tai Mo Shan to see the frost.

Well I might have to go there during Chinese New Year and see it for myself that is if it happens again.

That's also true, although I meant the Gulf States of the United States of America.
