It is a nice place to chill and just enjoy the moment... There are several parks around the lake where you can just sit and relax or stay at one of the coffee shops nearby. It is not as crowded as other cities in China.

It depends on the weather too. After rain the air is cleaner and clearer. If you are on holiday then I wouldn't worry. To get away from the smog head for less densely populated ares.
