(Daily Mail) – It is one of the most polluted countries on earth.
So it may come as little surprise that the latest fad in China is literally offering its city dwellers a breath of fresh air.
Numerous fresh air stations have been set up in some of China's most polluted cities.
The stations are stocked with individual air bags which provide users with pollution-free fresh air.
And they have proved to be a big hit with one air station in Zhengzhou city in central China's Henan province which was inundated with visitors.

There was no shortage of takers as locals flooded to enjoy the free fresh air.
User Feng Lin, 75, said: 'The air is really good, but the time is too short. I had to stop too soon but it was really great until then.'
It comes after just three of China's 74 cities met the official air quality standards, according to the Ministry of Environmental Protection in China.
