Hi all,

can anyone who is in Beijing now or was there recently tell me how the air quality is like now? I'll be there in a few days for a conference, and am kinda afraid that my allergies and asthma will act up!

Thanks loads!!

My colleague was in Beijing recently and he said the air quality is pretty bad. I would advise you to prepare some meds in advance for your asthma and allergy problems.

Not really much help to now but l was in Beijing last June and the smog was bad - it took us a few days to realise it was smog l thought it was really foggy! Nope pollution which was only really obvious when we went out of the city!

I was in Beijing last June too and the air is really bad indeed. There's such a smog that you can't see the blue of the sky nor the stars at night! I have asthma as well and had to use my inhaler more often while I was there.
Wearing a surgical mask whenever you're in the street can however help, a lot of Chinese people wear one.
