China Tobacco sells cigarettes and alcohol. They carry a large assortment of famous brands. Most of them are local ones, but China Tobacco offers genuine cigarettes, not fakes.
Cigarettes are way cheaper in China than in Europe. A pack of Marlboros cost RMB 15 in Beijing, vs. the equivalent of RMB 75 in London (5 quids).
Zhonghua is the most popular and most expensive cigarette brand in China. A pack costs RMB 38 (USD 5).
If you are only interested in smoking, any local cigarette outlet will do. But if you want the real McCoy, your 100% certified genuine Virginia leaf, don¡¯t settle for less than China Tobacco.
