    I've heard about Beijing and Shanghai having major pollution problems, but never about HK.

      The smog comes from Guangzhou where there are a large amount of factories. HK stays clear whenever the wind blows from the sea.

      I know right. It's like a poster for "get your shit together China".

    What a depressing vacation destination if you have to do that.

    Weird it wasn't this bad when I was there 7 years ago. Did pollution really shoot up that much in such a short period of time?
