Does anyone know where I can buy regular size rolling papers (like Tally-Ho) and filters for roll your own cigarettes near Hai Ba Trung District?

Stocked up on duty free tobacco before I left home, but have run out of papers and filters.

Check out one of the cigarette and tobacco vendors located near the roundabout next to Hoan Kiem lake.

Pull up at the ciggie merchants at the fountain at Hoan Kiem lake and ask for OCB, have both short (tally ho size) and long, for your bigger more "social" cigarettes

Success! Got papers and filters. Thanks for the help.
She ended up charging me 130k for a bag of filters and one pack of papers, which seemed a lot to me ... was that the result of my terrible haggling skills?

nooooo! dont go to those places they're such a rip off! but thats their set price. i used to buy king skins there for about 60k but now i found somewhere for only 30k

its a little bit further away so if you sock up then it'll be worth it.

go to "ton duc thang" and drive down to "de la thanh" just on the corner there you'll find a shop that has lots of cigarettes, they also sell papers and filters and there's no need to bargain.

the problem with hoan kiem is that they've ripped people off there for years so they have absolutely no need to reduce the price, if you have good haggling skills then maybe you can knock 10k off the price but thats it.

trust me, if you plan to live here for a long time take my advice

Papers at Hoan Kiem are 30k for small, and 40k for big. Think they saw you coming slim110
