Do They Sell Cigars In Thailand?
Yes, cigars are legal and sold in Thailand. But you can only bring in two cigars when arriving overseas due to Thai tobacco laws.
Thai tobacco laws prohibit the advertising of tobacco products. So it might be difficult to buy cigars.
The best place to buy cigars is at one of the cigar bars and lounges listed above.
Where Can I Buy Cigars In Bangkok?
Any of the cigar bars and lounges cited above sells cigars. But of the largest selection of cigars in Bangkok, head to Whisgars in Sukhumvit soi 23.
Can You Smoke Cigars Outside The Bars In Bangkok?
Thailand’s tobacco laws forbid smoking inside public enclosed spaces like bars and restaurants. But cigar bars and lounges are private clubs so that they can get around the rules.
If you are not within the cigar bar or lounge premises, it’s best not to smoke anything. This ensures you’re abiding by Thai rules.
The cigar bars listed are venues where you can smoke cigars. Many also have outdoor areas if you need some fresh air.
Are Tips Required At Cigar Bars In Bangkok?
Tipping is a sticky situation in Thailand. It is not customary except in big hotels and seeing that many of the cigar bars and lounges are inside big hotels, it’s best to tip.
The only reason not to tip is if a 10% or a higher service charge is added to the bottom of your bill. This is considered a gratuity, and if you see a service charge added to the bill, there’s no need to leave a tip.
What Are The Best Drinks To Pair With Cigars?
Single malt whiskey seems to be a cigar smoker’s favorite drink to pair with a cigar. If you’re bringing a lady friend along, they may prefer craft cocktails or fine wines.
But, everyone has their own favorites. You can be sure the staff will recommend their best cigars and drinks combos at each bar listed.
