In my experience both extreme cold and extreme heat are oppressive! I was in Thailand for a month in 2013 (it was supposed to be a year, but it did not work out -- a story for another day). It was 40C most of the time and humid. Some people laughed at me and others were worried that I was about to die. I was simply a very hot Canadian. I turned pink, not from sunburn, but flushed from the heat. I was pink during most of my stay. And perspiring. My landlady said she had never seen such a large air conditioning bill. Well, I was happy to pay it. I needed some relief.
However, I felt a bit spoiled at the same time. My father grew up poor in a very hot country. It was regularly as hot as Thailand in his country, and they did not have air conditioning in his home.
