What cheapies have you come accross? Are they smokable, or should one just skip them and buy Marlboros instead?
Here are the cheapest ciggies in Thailand. Wonder cigarettes cost 45 Bahts and SMS cost 35 bahts.
The cheapest cigarettes in Malaysia are Cannon. They are illegal duty free cigarettes, so not so easy to find.
All the above are smokable, in my opinion.
These were the cheapest ones I found in Istanbul, Turkey, for around 2.50 Euros. They were certainly smokable.
