2017 First Half of the year Official Environment Statistics have said the average PM2.5 is down to 49, (it's an official statistic and they use different ways to calculate it so take this with a grain of salt) However, Air Quality this year 2017 has been the best I've seen since coming here in 2013. Summer air quality was exceptional with hardly a bad day. Winter is naturally a lot worse and air quality usually doubles. I don't see that changing this year, so buy masks and invest in an air filter. Things will get better though.

I currently live in Hangzhou (and LOVE IT!), and have over the past three years. I'm also asthmatic and have been hospitalized twice a year for the first two years due to lung infections (typically at the beginning of winter or spring). But, this year, I've been using a face mask (outside only) and an air purifier (at home only) which has done WONDERS for my lungs. Most days, I don't need either.

Last year (2016), the air was unrelentingly horrid due to construction throughout the city (for G20). This year, the air has been significantly much better and only worsens due to natural phenomena (like low-lying clouds, which traps pollution and pollen) or if Beijing's air quality is poor and blows on down to us.

Today, the air is terrible (PM2.5 147), but you can see it so you'd be brain dead not to take precautions. But for the past month, the air has been acceptable (PM2.5 77 - 101). I usually don't put the mask on until 100+ or if my eyes become sensitive.

I would recommend this city to anyone who understands how to mitigate the damage due to air pollution. Or anyone who has tough-as-nails lungs, because this city is wonderful and has a lot to offer to those who want to accept it. ^_^
