Would love to visit all these places as they are so interesting. I have lived in North West Australia for some years where it gets to over 49 degrees C and loved it but you do need the air conditioning lol

Thanks for the offer but no thanks, I wouldn't like to live in any of them. I have been to Coober Pedy and it is hot in winter, and very hot in summer, but sleeping underground is fun for a holiday but not permanently.

I think I might like living in Tristan da Cunha. The rest are a big NO for me!

Incredible in this day & age to see people still living in these conditions in such remote places. Not for me thank you, I like home comforts.

Shishmaref, Alaska could have been mentioned here. It is a seaside village which is inhabited by Inupiats. There have been plans made to move the entire village but it has not happened yet.
