In Hong Kong, Skyline Banners Fake A Clear Day On Hazy Days

Hong Kong is a beautiful city, but on some days, its picturesque skyline falls victim to hazy weather.

What happens when the smog obscures the scenic view of Victoria Harbor? The government came up with an amusing and nifty solution: fake banners of a panoramic skyline.

Tourists have taken well to this contraption, posing all-smiles against the banners. Some even take wide shots showing the contrast between the actual, murky view and the fake blue skies.
