    Ahhh, I was thinking of the pollution coming from factories spread up the river toward Guangzhou and not Zuhai. You think what comes from Zuhai is worse than Guangzhou?
    Either way, west is not best when living in HK.

    No, it mostly comes from NW, that's where the bulk of poison spitting factories are. Worst spot on this Pearl River Delta map is continuously in Foshan:

    This is the same map that you see on SCMP weather page, note that the colours are misleading, what is green here should be yellow, what is yellow should be red and what is red should be black.

    Hmmm...funny, when I was in north NT, the air was great. But when I visited Tung Chung, it was terrible. The air's even worse in Macau (which as you know is right next to Pearl River Delta).

    I think that still makes sense. Right now if you're able to look, the west side of Kowloon/NTs is very, very clearly more smoggy than the east side. Sai Kung is the place to be... or Shek O/Stanley etc. on SE HK Island.

    The whole west side is buggered. North West near Yuen Long etc is known to be the worst.

    Well I went to view some houses here in Beas River and the air was great. You should go and feel it for yourself.

    That makes the water warmer, but doesn't pollute the skies. And you can't have a "China syndrome" because we are already there.

    Run in a gym, it is better for your knees and--in HK--your lungs.
    How far can the NT be? This is HK, not Texas.
