10 Warmest Destinations On Earth

The coldest and most miserable places on Earth are not necessarily the ones you’d think. For example, some of the warmest places in the world can be found in Canada, Russia, and Siberia.

In fact, because these countries are so vast it is hard to find a place that is consistently warm or cold across their entire territory. And even if you live in a place that seems like it would be too hot for comfort at first glance (like India), there might still be pockets of cooler temperatures available – just not where you happen to live!

The Hottest Places In The World: Overview

Let’s take a closer look at the top 10 warmest places on Earth. We will briefly go over their history, climate (average temperatures), and best times to visit them. All of these destinations are far from being the most beautiful or intriguing locations in the world – but they have one thing going for them: temperature. If you want to enjoy a summer vacation without having to sweat too much, then head north!

1) Death Valley, California/Nevada Border

Death Valley is so named because it is claimed that more people died there than anywhere else in North America due to its extreme conditions.  The land here seems lifeless with little vegetation and very dry air. The nearby salt flats allow visitors to view the largest natural “lake” in North America, which is actually a dry lake bed.  Death Valley holds the record for hottest temperature ever observed on Earth (134 degrees F – July 10, 1913). The average summer temperature here is 107°F and winter lows are below freezing.

How to Get There:

Fly into Las Vegas or Los Angeles, California, and take an hour-long drive in either direction. Death Valley National Park has maintained roads that cut across its desert floor (keep your car’s engine running so you have AC), but there are also hiking trails through the mountains that will eventually lead up to other parks like Yosemite.

Best Time To Visit:

June – mid-September when temperatures are at their highest.

2) Lucknow, India

Lucknow is a city in the northern Indian state of Uttar Pradesh. Its hot summers helped it earn its reputation as one of the hottest places on Earth – boasting a high temperature of 120 degrees F in 1868! The sultry weather here is due to two important factors: location and latitude. Being so far north means that days are long and hotter than most other parts of the world. And being right on the equator means that there is little time for nights to cool things off (luckily the monsoons come to visit during this season). Lucknow’s “summer” lasts about five months in total with temperatures hitting as high as 113°F from April – October. Rainfall is heavy (as in a lot) and the monsoon season will drench your clothes with about an inch of rain per day, but this gives way to cool breezy weather making it perfect for spending time outside.

How to Get There:

Lucknow is situated right next to Delhi so you can fly into either city and take a train or bus here. It’s about two hours away from both cities.

Best Time To Visit:

May – October when temperatures are highest, but Day 1-3 after the first rains come through around June – July as a break in between intense heat and humidity.

3) Cuibulco, Mexico

This tiny beach town which rests just west of Acapulco is one of the hottest places on Earth. The temperatures are reminiscent of those in the Sahara desert with highs reaching 119 degrees F in April.

How To Get There:

Fly into Acapulco International Airport and take a 15-minute ride south towards the Pipeline Road. , then take a left at that road and go east for another two miles until you reach Playa Costa Azul (site of The Beach).

Best Time To Visit:

One week around Easter – May when local celebrations make it relatively easy to get aquainted with the locals.

4) Tirat Zvi, Israel

Known for its hot springs and geysers, this desert town in southern Israel has been named one of the hottest places on Earth due to its location (on a ridge between two deserts), elevation (2,500 feet – 800 meters), and latitude (right near the equator). It’s no wonder that it was used as an ancient rest stop by camel caravans traveling through these lands. In fact, there is a famous scene in The Bible where Moses follows God’s direction and strikes a rock causing water to flow out… or at least that’s what they claim happened here anyway.  Either way, these natural features are now used for recreation.

How to Get There:

Tirat Zvi is a good hour away from the Ashdod and Rehovot train stations, but it’s only two hours away from Tel Aviv by car so stop here on your way to or from Israel.

Best Time To Visit:

Anytime – except maybe during November – March when temperatures are freezing cold due to its high elevation (Remember? It’s right near the equator).

It also has the hottest temperatures of any place in Australia, reaching a record high of 129.9°F
