So this is an odd question?
Just got back from paris and the weather was 28 to 30゚. The weather was okay and nice.
In the uk when the same Temperature hits. It feels like my skin on fire. Why does the uk heat burn and any other hot countries the hot weather is fine?.

It also depends on the wind as well as the UV index on that particular day.

If you're talking about 'other countries' I assume you mean European countries. It's partly because our heat is more humid than in Europe and so feels more suffocating. It doesn't help that very hot days are rare for us and our buildings are built for cold weather so are insulated and don't have air conditioning. But it's significantly less bearable in East and South East Asian countries so I'd consider British summer pretty alright!

It's definitely NOT cold, but MILD 95% of the time or WARM if you're in the south.

Some hot countries have automatic air con built into their homes.
We don't, sadly, so that might be contributing.

Wish I could deal with the cold! I keep wishing it was hot when it's cold, and cold when it's hot

Because British homes aren't originally fitted with air conditioning and ceiling fans.

Increased humidity.

The heat of a desert is easier to tolerant than the heat of a tropical humid climate.

Because white people aren't well pre-disposed to handling a hot climate, especially when it's normally chilly.
