Used to smoke Zhong Nan Hai too, but frankly, they're all crap.

I'm a happy ex smoker since 1 year.

I usually smoke some type of Huang He Lou... its funny I actually only smoke when I am in China,,, partially cause Cigarettes are cheaper here than back in the States and it helps with some stress now and then

In Hebei I smoked red diamond 'Hong Zuan'

Now I am in Yunnan and I can't get them here. In three years they were the only brand I found that I liked.. I get my friend in Hebei to mail them to me here.

Zhongnanhai are the most acceptable cigs I've smoked in China.

Golden Bridge (Jin Qiao) are also pretty good.

 

The rest is just flavored cigarettes that have this godawful aftertaste.

Sept Wolves (the red and gold package - 15 RMB). There are cheaper versions (anywhere from 6 RMB up to 35, but the red and gold packs are the best).

Back in South Africa my favourite was Peter Steyvesant and in Hong Kong I like Marlboro. Here in the mainland I smoken General but I quit a couple of months ago so I am very proud to say that I am now a non smoker.

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
