Hong Kong fake skyline


The air pollution in Hong Kong has gotten so bad that tourism officials have put up a banner displaying what the skyline looks like on a clear day.

This week, Hong Kong's Air Pollution Index' reached 'Very High' in certain districts, with dangerously high levels of toxic ozone and nitrogen dioxide recorded at roadside monitoring stations.

Tourists vacationing in Hong Kong can't get a clear shot of some of the city's most famous views, including the skyscraper-studded waterfront, so tourism officials created a faux skyline and erected in front of the real one.
