Q: Where can I buy cigars in Guangzhou or Shenzhen?

I want to find a source for decent cigars in Guangzhou or Shenzhen. I would prefer Cuban, but Dominican would be great also. Does anyone know of a good shop? Also, has anyone bought a Hookah in China? How about finding hookah tobacco?

In Guangzhou you can go to Backstreet in the CITIC building basement and there's a tobacconist in there, in fact you buy Cigars pretty much anywhere in Guangzhou....

If you are in Shenzhen, you can buy Cuban cigars at Airport or Railway Station. In mainland China, Cuban cigars cost 50% more than in Hong Kong.

 

I would make day trip to HK. Every price in HK is on 20% discount to mainland price.

I ordered a box of cohiba robustos at cigarofcigars.com  and they where delivered with all the authenticity seals that back up their genuinity. I had them shipped to Shenzhen and the only problem is that it took around 12 business days to get them, also they only take paypal.

The key to low profile marketing is to have a high post count question and anwer. I have a fantastic range of Rolex watches I want to sell. But I will wait till me and my sock puppet have 5000 posts each before I advertise.

Go to HK. Tsim Tsa Tsui/Mong Kok: last hotel, close to the beach on L side of Nathan, if you're heading toward the Port, is my spot for cohibas.

I answered that Q 2 Y ago. I remember now.

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
