Can this mean both hot like the temperature and hot like it's an attractive body?


No, panas refers to heat. Not all meanings of a word translate. To take a taxi would mean to steal it when translated (one of my bahasa errors in Indonesia).


If you're looking for the word for attractive, I'm told cakep is the best , and it works for both men and women. Cantik can be used for women, but I believe it involves a shade of "bimboness" Don't use indah for people, but you can use it for physical features.

"Kamu cakep - kamu punya mata indah"


No. Panas means a person temperature. In Indonesia to say someone is 'hot' we use 'sexy'


Tubuh and badan are same?


Solution says ... badannya. Earlier example was tubuh. This word 'badan' has not yet been introduced. This becomes a guessing game.
