Haikou Air Quality Best in the Nation
Dates: July, 2017 Location: Haikou
Data released by China’s Ministry of Environmental Protection shows that of China’s 74 major cities, Haikou, the capital of Hainan Province, had the best air quality in the first half of 2017.
Haikou has consistently ranked top for air quality amongst China’s major cities, due to the city’s location on the tropical island of Hainan, where vast rainforests and strict environmental protection keep the skies blue and the air fresh. Hainan’s focus on sustainable development and eco-tourism aims to keep the province at the top of the list while also bringing in green technology and improving the livelihood of island residents.
