Cigarettes in Vietnam are too cheap

The price of cigarettes in Australia is sky-high because they are taxed so high. To buy a pack of cigarettes for 25 Australian dollars ($16.82), you have to pay tax up to 18 Australian dollars. The price of a pack of cheap cigarettes in Thailand is 89 baht ($2.59). A pack of cigarettes in Vietnam cost VND6,000-20,000 ($0.25-0.85). At my office in Vietnam, there is a gathering place for smoking. Many of the smokers are young men in their 20s.
