1.- The Davidoff at Grant Hyatt Hotel.

2.- At Beijing International Airport.

3.- At Cafe Habana, formerly next to the Jian Guo Hotel, now moved to the Scitech Hotel.

4.- Or go see Omar in his shop in the St Regis Hotel (walk in the front door, take a right and it's the last shop on the right). It's called Casa de los Habanos. You get real Cohibas there.

And I am sure many other places do, I never had a problem or a long walk to get one.

Now, if you buy more than one at the time, it does pay to invest in a good top notch humidor to keep them in top condition. The problem in Beijing is the dry/arid/acid climate which spoils most cigars if not kept properly. I used to go to the bar at the Traders - which kept a decent mid-range selection. That was until I caught the tell tale signs of reinvigorating - water marks from a spray mister and slight mouldy scent - interior of the cigar crackly. Stopped going there.

Now, I buy in bulk (by the box) and keep them in an excellent humidor I have.

If you are a cigar smoker - invest in a humidor. The wet cotton balls in the box thing doesn't work here.

They did have a cigar place in the Chaoyang Joy City SHopping mall. It's located on the bottom where Jusco is. If they still have it it should be close to where the checkout counters are on the far side of Jusco. That's the latest one that I've seen!

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
