Here's my counterexample:
I have never felt an eye-burning sensation in all the times I've been in Beijing. I have never had difficulty breathing in Beijing, and that's including after climbing the 1000+ steps to ascend the Mutianyu section of the Great Wall.

I've seen polluted skies. I've seen clear skies. Is the air pollution bad there at times? Definitely yes, depending on which way the wind blows. If I recall correctly, a lot of the air pollution comes from factories and coal burning parts of the North. Beijing itself isn't a super big air polluter. So it depends on the wind.

That being said, there weren't as many clear skies as there are in a nice place like SoCal.

I've gone to the Forbidden City multiple times. I've gone to Tiananmen Square multiple times. No places around there were full of trash, be it in water or on land. Though there are a lot (really, a lot) of tourists who visit these places, it's one of the more heavily guarded locations. Considering the central headquarters of the Communist Party of China is just a few steps away too, I'd say they take a pretty aggressive stance on keeping it clean.

I've visited the Olympic Park multiple times as well. Lots of tourists, but not that much trash around either.

I'm not sure what your definition of post apocalyptic is, but there are definitely parts of the States that look far worse than parts of Beijing - and considering Beijing is far far older than the States, that's impressive.

Is there air pollution? Yes. Is there trash scattered about? Yes. Are there shitty looking places/old buildings? Yes. Are there fancy looking/modern buildings? Yes. It's a typical big city, but with added on Chinese culture.

You get countryside tourists visiting, so yeah, they're gonna bring their countryside attitude with them. They might have their kid shit on the street because that's what they do in the countryside - that's a culture difference, not a Beijing problem. Most Beijing residents/natives would even look down on that as uncivilized.

Although, air pollution is extremely bad during winter, as others have pointed out, due to the coal burning and heating. The north is very cold, and to deal with the cold, they use shit heat. I've never visited during winter, but I've had extended stays during summer. The air pollution is there, but it's not nearly as bad. Some days were worse, but some days reminded me of home in Socal.

It can be bad, depending on the weather.

That said, there's a ton of cool things to do/see -- Great Wall, Forbidden City, Summer Palace, Olympic Stadium, Temple of Heaven, Parks, Temples, plus lots of great shopping!

Would I plan an entire trip around Beijing by itself? No. But, you can easily spend 4-5 days exploring the area.

I'd say any large city is good for tourists.

They do but they had strong winds the few days before I got there so air quality was better than normal.

Beijing has the most tourist stuff. Shanghai is the most western - French and British influence.
