Flying From Beijing’s Smog to Shenzhen’s Blue Skies

Every time I fly back to Shen­zhen I feel a lit­tle sad to leave my fam­ily, but the one thing I don’t miss is pol­lu­tion in Bei­jing. It seems this year the sit­u­a­tion has been wors­en­ing so the pol­lu­tion index fre­quently hits lev­els which are dan­ger­ous and cause seri­ous haz­ards to health. How­ever, as I fly fur­ther south the sit­u­a­tion improves and I am always happy to see the sun and blues skies in Shen­zhen. The city is one of the green­est in the coun­try with some of the best air qual­ity in China.
