Cigars in Bangkok, where to buy?


Recommended Posts

Hi all, I usually get my cigars at the airport, but due to the current situation I now have to source them closer to home. Anyone know a good place in Bangkok at reasonable prices? I have in the past seen some outlets that were at least 3 times the price. I am looking for Flor de Cano which usually retails in Kingpower at 4k, or Romeo and Juliet. Thanks in advance.

There are two shops at Siam Paragon..the cheaper Phil's are in the tobacco area to the rear of the supermarket, and the outrageously expensive ones are up a flight of stairs kind of in a loft of the same supermarket...you don't have to cut through the market, but that food court can be harder to navigate than the store..

 

Google Siam-Havana...

www.tabaqueria.com. You can get EMS from the Phil's.  The slim panatellas they sell at the aforementioned shop are 10 THB, but now 60 or so at Siam.

What became of Siam-Havana in the dusit thani?  Isn't that hotel being rebuilt?  Remember getting a pack of five partagas for 550 there..in 2005...it has gotten crazy since.

La Casa del Habano in the JW Marriott hotel lobby (near the restaurant.)

 

In addition to monthly specials (usually 30% off a few select boxes), they have a "seconds" humidor that contains various cigars with cracked feet, torn wrapper, discolorations, etc. that they sell for 10-25% off the regular price.

 

They also carry a lot of the more inexpensive Partagas, RyJ, and Upmann cigars (Mille Fluers, Super Partagas, etc.) for around 500 thb per cigar.  You can probably negotiate a discount for buying a box.  And yes, they carry La Flor de Cano also.

 

(Opens at 11:00 am, closed 4-5 pm for lunch break.)

 

Skip any suggestions to visit WhisGars.  No Cuban cigars, poor selection/variety, just as overpriced - if not more so.

Thanks for all the information, though I am a little confused about the Casa Del Habano. You say that it is in at the JW Marriott, a quick search say that it is the Havana Express that is at the Marriott and that the Casa Del Habano is at the Mandarin Oriental. ??

  Sorry...confused to the names.  It is indeed Havana Express to which I was referring.

I would take apple's word for sure, but the shops were closing and opening well before China virus.  I think sukhumvit grand millineum even had two shops.. And they would even escort you to the patio to give you a comfy place to enjoy.

Out of curiosity, has anyone ever managed to successfully order cigars online from overseas and have them arrive safely here? If so how much  tax does one have to pay on them?

www.tabaqueria.com. I was 5 for 7..no taxes.  Get the lighter packs instead of the boxes. They use EMS. Hong Kong is riskier, and much more expensive (and better Cubans).  I bought a couple of panetelas at Siam paragon earlier for 69 each.  Same ones from Tabaqueria.  About four times more, though.

What brand cigars have you been buying from Slowlife 420....since they currently only show 'Backwoods' cigars in stock, nothing premium.

Shame about the cigar place at the Marriott, I was planning a visit. The Pacific Cigar Company gave me a quote for some Flor de Canos, the Selectos were nearly 5 times the price. The Petit Coronos were more reasonable.  Does anyone know where else I can get Flor de Canos and what the prices are for a box of 25?

I bought a box of Partagas Club minis at Narita duty free.. 2520 yen.. Used a good credit card and paid in JPY.. Otherwise they were only offering 106 JPY per usd..  I got 109.5652 from visa.. 23.00 USD for 20 minis.. Good value for Tokyo.  Grrrreat cigars.. and you can smoke airside at Narita, unlike Ohare.  Smoked 2 in NRT and one out front of ORD.. helped me a lot on my 10,000 mile trip.  

 

BTW, my last search in bkk, took me to Ruam Rudee soi 2, Ploen Chit.. to Pacific Cigar.. Perhaps, it was their main office, but looked like they had possibly done retail.  Not sure, but the gate was locked at 11am Wednesday morning.. No one answered the bell.  Anyone know about that location?

Cigar bars with reasonably priced whiskey? Central Bangkok.

 

I've got a brand new box of Onyx cigars my father gave me last time I was visiting.

Customs are a bunch of cowboys, I would never order cigars from abroad to be delivered here, they'll hold them to ransom until you pay whatever figure they decide.

More fool you. You pay a pittance compared to what they charge for tax at a authorised outlet. They don't hold the cigars anyway, the tax is thrown on and the cigars are held by the thai post. 

 

Ordered from Oz a bunch of times. They have no idea how much the cigars should be taxed and tend to just throw on a thousand bath fine. Next to nothing if you are ordering a decent stash of real cubans. Word to the wise. You want proper prices, order from abroad and have them sent under the radar. It's common sense....!!!
