There are a lot of sources that speak about the warmest places in the world. But, no one can give accurate details about all the hottest places in the world; as the annual temperature changes every year. Here in this list, we will display ten of the warmest places in the whole world.
The main cause of warming in southern Africa over the past two decades is the infamous hole in the ozone layer above Antarctica.

During the colonial era, Berbera had an average annual temperature of 85.5°F (29.7°C) for the POR of 1908-1950 and Massawa from 1932-1950. This shows that Africa with its towns is the warmest place on earth. “The development of the ozone hole could, in fact, be the dominant cause of the increase in temperature over southern Africa,” Manatsa, a climate scientist, told LiveScience.
