Smog city?

What city is THE smog city?

You hear many story about Los Angeles air polution. I mean just look at it


And in Mexico City the situation isn't any better.


Another city which has serious air pollution is Venice. During my holiday in Croatia two years ago we decided to go to Venice by boat. When near to Venice so saw a big cloud of smog hanging above the city.

Chinese cities have mostly smog but I also heard of Tbilisi, Georgia have mayor problems with its air quality.


But what city has the worst air quality of the world?

Yes, but the wind over the cities can clean them so well. LA has the problem of being between the ocean and some high mountains. Istanbul for example is much cleaner, because of the constant wind.

That pic of Mexico City is pretty old, maybe during the 90┤s. Since then, Goverment has applied many programs to reduce the air pollution: Restriction of use of cars, better gasolines. There┤s also a project for installing big air filters and fans all around the city, etc

I'll write it again - Bangkok!
Don't wear a white t-shirt in this city, since it'll get grey-brown in a couple of mins.
