    Default dubai airport


    0 Not allowed!

    Im travelling to thailand in 8 weeks and want to take a good stack of smokes to enjoy. Im wondering if its worth picking up a few boxes in dubai to take out with a boveda bag to store them in whilst there. Has anyone got any experience on the price and quality of sticks before i take the plunge? i have seen mixed reviews some saying they can be poorly stored and high prices.

    I can take 30-40 from my humi or buy a few boxes to take but space will be tight in cases etc and i dont want to risk damaging anything, If i dont take any att all i may be forced to pay for substandard sticks. and that would't be cricketing, not on my honeymoon

    i dont want anything particularly flash some h upmann corona juniors and some robustos would be ideal...

    will be in bangkok for about 3 days but i know prices are high so dubai i think is my best bet

    If you know you’re going through Dubai airport get the customer service email, their service is second to none for duty free at least!

    Drop them an email and they’ll be able to let you know stock and prices and hold boxes for you to pick up if needed.

    They usually have plenty of stock, and whilst their prices have gone up a little in the last few years, they are still good value for money. If you email them, they may be able to dig out some older boxes for you.

    Don't get caught out and leave yourself having to buy in Thailand. It is just as expensive as here.
    Take them with you or make sure you pick some up in DXB.

    sounds like your talking from experience, i have been to bangkok before but didnt smoke, from what i can gather online cigars can be found but in the over hyped, over priced sky bars and lounges so definately something i want to avoid. From bangkok it will be up to chang moi and down to koh chang..not a chance on koh chang so ideally i want to be well stocked.

    I might buy a box to take and try my arm in dxb, waiting on them emailing me back so see whats what i suppose.

    cheers

    Although prices have risen a bit over the last 2-3 years and still think prices are great at DBX. If You can, pick up some regionals.
    3 hours transfer on DBX (I feel) is a looong time - at least good enough to browse the LCDH
