      However, there are other hot spots on earth where there is no even life. But some people still manage to live there. The real temperature record holder is the Dasht-e Lut desert. It is located in Iran. In 2005, experts recorded the highest temperature on the earth surface there. The data showed that the air warmed up to 70 degrees above zero Celsius. It was possible to make measurements using a space satellite called “Aqua.”
      The desert is called the hottest spot in the world, as well as the aridest place on the planet. Moreover, no creature can survive there. Due to the strong winds, high dunes form in the Dasht-e Lut desert. The height of some of them reaches 500 meters.
      Another hot place is the Libyan city called El Azizia. The highest temperature in this place was recorded in the autumn of 1922. Then the thermometers showed 57.8 degrees. However, things are not as bad in this city as in the Iranian desert.
      One of the hottest places on the planet is located one hour from the Mediterranean Sea. Therefore, as soon as the traveler gets tired of the heat, he can immediately move closer to the sea breeze.

      There is the notorious Death Valley in the US state of California. The desert is 86 meters below sea level. And here in 1913, experts registered a record – the air warmed to 56.7 degrees above zero. In general, the average air temperature in the summer months here is kept at 47 degrees. And Death Valley is considered the driest territory of America.

      Another hottest place on the planet is Kebili in Tunisia. Here the temperature also breaks records. A mercury line can rise to 55 degrees. And this is perhaps the highest temperature data recorded in Africa. However, Kebili is a beautiful desert oasis where locals can escape from the intolerable heat. By the way, it is believed that this place was inhabited 200 thousand years ago. And the secret of the popularity of this area is palm trees and fresh water.

      Residents of the town of Timbuktu also suffer from the heat. The city is located at the intersection of trade routes in the Sahara. It was once the base of Islam in Africa and a scientific center where the vast collections of ancient manuscripts were found. But the heat does its job, and the desert conquers the territory of the city. Dunes sometimes grow on the streets, and the roads are entirely dominated by sand. From time to time the thermometer rises to 55 degrees Celsius.
      Cold waters of Niger save the inhabitants. The river flows 24 kilometers from the city.
      Even though many of the above places are notorious for high temperature, they also attract many tourists from all over the world due to their unusually beautiful scenery.
      The task to name the hottest country in the world appeared to not be an easy one, but we have tried our best to provide you with the latest info, but still, we believe that the answer to this question is open. Feel free to share the information with us. Probably you have some valuable facts that will help us to name the hottest country.

      Previous Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has actually made his return to football by playing in a charity match in memory of Aldo Platini.
      The match, which was also put on in an effort to raise money for ill kids, happened in Nancy on Sunday afternoon.
        Legendary French midfielder and former UEFA president Michel Platini, kid of Aldo, was likewise in attendance at the game which marked the opening of a stadium carrying the name of his dad.
      Aldo was the first individual to give Wenger a shot at football management at Nancy in 1984 and the Frenchman did not hesitate to take a chance to show his respect for his late friend.

      Wenger finally left his post at the Emirates Stadium in the summer after a tenure spanning two decades, three Premier League title triumphs, seven FA Cups wins and an unbeaten season in 2003-04.
      Speaking after the game, in which the former midfielder did not show his age on the wing, Wenger admitted that he is yet to make a decision on his future.
      ‘To be honest, for the moment, I have not really thought about that because I fixed myself something whereby in the first few months I would not take any decisions,’ he told local outlet L’Est Republican
      ‘So I have not been too worried about that. It is not even going through my head.

      ‘I am not retired. If I was, I would have been for a long time. I will be 69 in October.
      Asked if the footballing world would see him as a manager again, the Frenchman simply replied: ‘I don’t know, I don’t know’.
