Yes, some like it hot. But, May in Delhi is a sizzling affair and wouldn’t get many likes. Rather have a look at the steamiest months in this list of the hottest cities.

Asia in April

The downside of a beach-break to Thailand or Bali in April, is that you may not want to leave your air-conditioned hotel room. Chiang Mai will be bursting at the seams with sweaty nomads in April with average daytime highs of 36.5°C (102.6°F). The Bali beaches have April highs averaging 34.4°C (93.9°F) and Phuket is not much cooler than that.

April in Bogota is a much milder maiden and she doesn’t really warrant a mention on this list. But, I threw her and Saint Petersburg in nonetheless.
