Beijing Air Quality in April?

Jump to last reply

We are traveling to Beijing the first week of April 2013. Our family members include an adult and a child with environmental allergies and asthma that can be triggered by allergies. At home in the U.S. we only need over-the-counter allergy medicine and do not need inhalers. (Inhalers are used a couple of times a year for emergencies.)

We realize pollution now is horrendous. Any idea what it might be like in April, presumably with less coal burning? What about sandstorms?

We'd like our children to see Beijing, and had planned to stay for 5 days before flying down to Guangzhou.

Thank you for any advice and experience,
