New Trend In China Sells ‘Fresh Air’ To Tourists

We always say that the best things in life are free – technically that should include the air we breathe. But not this is not the case in southern China’s Guangdong Province, where locals prove that an “air-for-sale” scheme is actually a legitimate business.

After days of smoggy weather in Guangdong Province, city dwellers flock to the mountain side on weekends for a breath of fresh air. Here they are met by vendors literally selling fresh air.

Stalls with bags of “fresh air” were displayed for sale — vendors claimed to have collected the air from “the depths of the mountain.”

One of the posters written in the local language, when translated, “Purchasing clean air is purchasing a healthy life.”

Priced between 10 to 30 yuan ($1.50 – $4.60 USD) some tourists were seen buying these air bags and breathing fresh air which proves to be a luxury on smoggy days.
