(Beijing) — Desperate times call for desperate measures. Or so said one family that decided to leave smog-choked Beijing for a leafy border town near the Mekong River.
Huang Jingjing and many of her neighbors in a newly built apartment block in Xishuangbanna — more than a nine-hour drive from China’s “spring city,” Kunming — call themselves “smog refugees.” Huang said she decided to quit her well-paying job as a civil servant in the Chinese capital after her 4-year-old daughter developed a chronic cough and signs of asthma.
