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

  I smoke zhong nan hai myself. Why is that? Why do so many expats smoke zhong nan hai? Weird.

andy74rc:

Maybe because they do not taste chinese....

  I think it's 'cause they look and taste a little like Marlboro Lights.

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.
