    I really don't think there's sufficient and consistent difference in air quality between different areas of the territory that this should be a significant factor in your decision (beyond not living at street level right next to a major road).

    "Where to live if we want fresh air?".

    This forum is the last place to ask this question, havent read page 1 or 2 has it been bombarded with data / statistics yet Hahaaahaaa, most will probably reply 'THERE IS NO FRESH AIR"

    average walk via short cut is indeed 20mins, via bypassing the metropolis complex ( walking the adjacent the road, then crossing over to the walkway to hung luen rd, pass the smelly drainage storage centre) , if you go via actually designated signed directions, it's closer to 27-30 goes via hung ling rd, closer to whampoa, on a rainy day, preferable as it's mostly covered until u go pass habour place, then towards ferry

    yes, it's pretty sweaty, plus the ferry is very infrequent due to lack of demand, not ideal at all

    Actually 4 minutes.

    Quite right. I was using Google Maps to estimate, and didn't realize that the time listed includes walking and waiting.
