Haikou In My Heart
Compared with other capital cities in China, Haikou's air quality is superior. Except for on cloudy days, the colors of the sky and clouds here are always an appealing blue and white. Take a deep breath and you will feel how fresh the moist air is. Breathing in such air may not only help one lead a longer life, it can also alleviate bad moods.
