You’ve probably had one of those summers where it seems like the heat is reaching some new peak of being unbearable. Someone cracks a joke about it being hot enough to cook an egg on the sidewalk, but you’re not laughing, because it might just be the truth!
On the other hand, maybe you live in a country where hot summers aren’t exactly your main concern, but rather the hellishly cold winters are what you worry about. In which case, you might just be interested to know where some of the hottest countries in the world are, so that you have somewhere to flee to, come wintertime.
Take a look at this list of the some of the hottest countries in the world, and start packing your bags. Because, after all, you don’t just want mildly toasty when running from the snow, you want scorching heat that will banish all thoughts of freezing temperatures and icy breath.
Keep in mind though, this list is of the average temperature per country, not its peak heat in summer, so it may get even more sweltering that you expect!
Thailand Takes Last Place
Some might have thought that Thailand would be higher on the list, given its reputation for hot, humid climates. But with an average temperature of 27 degrees Celsius, it sits right down at the bottom. Thailand also has great food, culture, and beautiful landscapes, so it’s a good place to wait out the winter.
Yemen A Close Second To Last
Also sitting at an average of 27C degrees, Yemen is in the south of the Arabian Peninsula.
American Samoa Increases the Heat
Notching up the heat to just 27.1C, we have American Samoa, an official United States territory in the South Pacific Ocean. It is, in fact, seven islands though, not just one, so there is plenty of space to soak up the sun.

Passing The 27.2C Range
In the range of the 27.2C average temperature we have a number of locations, mostly tropical islands, including Palau, the Glorioso Islands, Brunei, the Juan de Nova Island, Indian Ocean Islands, Federated States of Micronesia, Kiribati, Nauru, Tokelau, Tuvalu, and more.
Palau is a collection of 50 picturesque islands in the western Pacific Ocean. The Glorioso Islands are little known, located north of Madagascar, owned by France, and notable for getting humid and hot in the summer. The average temperature doesn’t sound like much until you consider that the average high is 29.4C. It’s getting a little toasty.
The Juan de Nova Island, also French owned, and also in the same area, the sitting with the same average of 27.2C, though peaking much higher in the summer. Brunei is noted for its outrageously wealthy Royal Prince, Abdul Mateen, and is located on the island of Borneo.
27.3C And Beyond
Now we’re getting into the seriously hot range, where it might just start getting a little uncomfortable for those who are used to more icy climates. Chad is a landlocked African country that has an average temperature of 27.3C, and certainly won’t be the last African country we see on this list.
But first back to an islands, the Marshal Islands, which played a major role in World War II, with many wrecks of Japanese and United States war machines in the surrounding waters is also in a hot spot. It sits at 27.4C. Senegal, Curacao and Saint Lucia all sit at 27.5C, with Saint Lucia, an island in the Caribbean, being named the top Honeymoon destination in the world.
28C And Above – Scorchers
This is what you’ve been waiting for; the real scorcher countries in the world, where the average temperature sits at 28C degrees Celsius and above. Once again, this is the average, meaning that the highs are well above the numbers listed here. Don’t forget your sunscreen and a good hat!
The Gambia, on the West African Coast, is a tropical paradise, and hot tourist destination. It sits at 28C, with peaks well into the 30s. Aruba is also at 28C, off the coast of Venezuela.
Niger is at 28.3C, and Mali at 28.4C, where you can find the Sahara Desert. But at the top of the list we have Djibouti, with an average temperature, year round, of 28.5C. Now THAT’S hot!
