Linfen - a polluted place in China

I read an article about a place in China called Linfen, a coal mining town in Central China.

Supposedly covered in soot/blackness. The city with the worst pollution.

Any comments much appreciated. Why is that city worth any a visit?

One Linfen native summed up the city's plight to a TIME reporter last year: "This place of ours is no good." Don't take their word for it! Go and see if that's but a feeble attempt to mislead tourists. Do let us know what you find...

No, I have no intentions of visiting Linfen. Just curious.

I guess the Chinese govt will allow anything. More on the health aspects of how any govt can let that happen.
