Travel Options For Smokers

Smokers have been having a hard time of it over the last decade or so as the number of places they can light up has decreased by the year. Most public places and modes of transport used in the developed world now have no smoking rules in place which means nicotine addicts are relegated to the street corner to get their fix. Those of us who like to travel to far off lands now feel we have a difficult choice to make if we want to enjoy our annual holidays to the max. We can either visit those less developed countries who have yet to introduce anti-smoking measures, or we can spend the majority of our trip looking for places where we are allowed to sneak a smoke.

This dilemma for smokers has encouraged forward thinking travel companies to come up with a tourism product aimed solely at smokers who are fed up with governments measures which seem to exist to make our lives a misery. The only problem is with these sorts of packages you’ll have to spend your trip doing things organized by someone else. I don’t know about you but when I go away for a holiday I like to make my own decision about how I’m going to spend my time.

Some Options For Smokers Looking To Travel

  1. Las Vegas – If you are fan of gambling as well as nicotine, and don’t want to leave the States for a break, then you won’t find a better destination than this. The bright lights of Vegas opens it’s arms to tobacco users, and offers an exciting place to take a break from the real world.
  2. Croatia – This increasingly popular European destination has all the charm and character of Italy with cheaper prices and spectacular scenery. Smoking is still something of a national sport here so you have the freedom light up whenever the urge takes you.
  3. Egypt – The land of the Pharaohs is a smokers paradise. You can smoke to your hearts content, visit the Pyramids, and pick up a pack of 20 for around $5.

Another Option For Smokers

If you can’t be bothered to make your travel plans based specifically around you nicotine needs then you might want to try using an electronic cigarette for the time you are away from home. These products allow you to “smoke” without lighting up so they can be used in most places with a smoking ban.

The best e cigarette products are easily available online and although they aren’t quite as satisfying as the real thing they do offer an alternative for those times when you are in a strange land and can’t find a smoking friendly area.
