@ big-dog

Crikey, that looks like Hawaii! Haha

Its amazing how one country could have so much climatic diversity. I mean, what other country (aside from the U.S.) has polar, arid, semi-arid, temperate, tropical, and sub-tropical climatic zones.

BTW, Sanya looks fantastic! I'd definitely consider it as the city in China with the best natural setting.

Technically, I think China is the ONLY country that has ALL the climate zones you mentioned in ONE time zone since China only has ONE time zone (Beijing Time). The US has Alaska (Artic) but this is not shared with a temperate zone, whereas the Pacific time zone does not have the Artic or Tropic (it does have the temperate subtropic climate zone that characterizes the SF Bay area and semi-desert climate zone for S. California). Since the US is broken into many zones, its climate zones, while diverse, are also broken up into different zones. Thus, I think China is unique in regards to your observation.
