Bring Cigars

edited April 2009 in - China
I am a student in U.S. and planning to go back to China this summer. I bought some cigars as gift in Miami. Does anyone know how many cigars I can bring back to China?

    Reportedly you are allowed to bring 2 bars of cigars to China. But I am not absolutely sure about this. Better to consult the authority.

    Hi, up to 400 cigarettes or 100 cigars a are duty-free either entering or exiting china. More than the limited amount needs to be declared and a certain mount of duty needs to be paid. The duty of cigar is quite high, about 50% of the price. So, do not take too much. What's more, you'd better eep the receipt.

    Hello Monica, this is Cindy from Guilin Tianyuan International Travel Service. Welcome back to China :)

    Monica, do you plan to spend some time touring Guilin or other parts of China? If yes, we, a professional tour operator based in the worldwide famous tourism city --- Guilin, would be very glad to be your help! For your referenceere, here I have great honour to make some introduction of Guilin highlights to you as below:

    Generally speaking, it is good season from April to November to travel to Guilin, as the weather is getting nicer during this period, and people can enjoy a very beautiful natural picture consisted of limpid water, miraculous peaks, green plants and blossomy flowers.

    Travelling in Guilin, people will never need to worry that there is nothing to see! Elephant Trunk Peak, Seven Star Park, Two Rivers & Four Lakes, Reed Flute Cave, Seven Star Cave, Gudong Waterfall Scenic Spot (a rare waterfall that people can climb)... these and more wonderful sciences are waiting for your coming and exploration.
    (Notes: Two Rivers --- Li River & Peach Blossom River; Four Lakes --- Banyan Lake, Chinese Fir Lake, Laurel Lake & Wooden Dragon Lake; They are connected and usually tourists visit them by boat and taking a walk)

    If you are tired of spending your time in city, it will be a good choice to go the LONGSHENG Terraced Rice Fields, which are built along the slope winding from the riverside up to the mountain top. The highest part is 880 meters in elevation while the lowest part is 380 m. The coiling line that starts from the mountain foot up to the mountain top divides the mountain into layers of water glittering in the sun in spring, layers of green rice shoots in summer, layers of golden rice in fall, and layers of silvery frost in winter. Just imagine how amazing it is!

    Another place never should be missed is the worldwide well-known YANGSHUO County, which is 67 km away from Guilin. It is said that “The landscape of Guilin tops in the world, and that of Yangshuo tops in Guilin” --- you can imagine how attractive it is even if you have never been to Yangshuo, you The popular activities in Yangshuo are very colorful: wandering around the West Street, visiting various traditional and modern shops in the West Street, sitting at an outdoor café, tasting the delicious local food and snacks, cycling along the road for sightseeing, rock climbing, Li River cruising, bamboo raft floating on Yulong River… There must be something that interests you.

    If you are planning or interested in paying a visit to Guilin or other parts of China, please feel free to contact us or visit our web site for more information:

    Best wishes!
