Many parts of China have been experiencing long-lasting scorching hot weather since July, with temperatures soaring over 35°C (95°F). Especially the southern China cities in Zhejiang, Hunan, Jiangsu and Fujian provinces are suffering from the heat.

As of 2 a.m. on August 5, Changsha, capital city of Hunan Province, ranks number one for the highest number of days – 45 exactly -- with extremely high temperatures.

Nevertheless, Chongqing challenges Changsha's pole position as the city is being hit by excruciating temperatures for a total of 38 days -- keeping this year's record-high of 40.9°C (105.62°F) on July 15.

Hangzhou of Zhejiang Province ranks third as the heat wave continues though temperatures did cool down a little after a few days of rain.

The following are the top 10 Chinese cities which remain hot this summer.
