Ah, fresh air!
Smoking in any enclosed public areas is now prohibited, even in pubs and bars. And the price of tobacco is exorbitant compared to that in the Philippines. If you’re a smoker coming over to NZ be prepared to either quit smoking or spend around $10 per pack (I’m not sure of the actual street price as I don’t smoke). That’s roughly 400 pesos per pack! If that’s not going to force you to reduce or even make you stop smoking, I don’t know what will.
Think of it this way. If you’re a 1 pack a day smoker and decide to quit smoking that will be $3650 ($10 x 365 days) saved in a year. Multiply that by 40, that will be 146,000 pesos. Enough for plane fare to Manila. May pocket money ka pa!
