The air pollution levels in Beijing can be though on visitors. Depending a bit on the time of the year, a thick pollution blanket envelops Beijing and suburbs, with exhaust fumes, coal-burning stoves and industries. A major effort is undertaken to tackle the problem, but with car purchasing adding 300.000 cars a year to the streets it is an uphill battle. Some types of air pollution will diminish, while other will increase. Dust storms from the loess areas and the Gobi add severely to the problem.
People with asthma and allergies and other ailments relating to breathing should take extra care and perhaps check first what the situation is like.
Beijing, Guangzhou and Shanghai are all large crowded cities with air pollution. On a clear day, it looks overcast. On the flight from Beijing (north) to Guangzhou (south) we never saw the ocean or the ground because of the heavy layer of smog. If you have asthma or emphysema, you may want to think twice about a visit to the People's Republic of China...
We must improve our air quality and transport frastructure before 2008!
One reason to be blamed is these " under construction place"....many dusk came from here!
Pollution can get a bit bad around the city. After walking all day I was covered in grit and my white shirt was a distinctive grey.
Try to get all your breathing out of the way before you get here. I'll never complain about American pollution again--even in Houston.
