theres information, it's just all in Chinese. chongqing has attracted alot of new industry recently, so there will be polution, but if you want a place thats cheap with no pollution, then check out haikou. its on an island, and theres very few factories there

How is it that a city of 1 Million people has no info on it?? Was wondering how the pollution was here. Cost of living looks nice and cheap...
