Beijing.- The first Casa del Habano in mainland China recently opened in the city of Guangzhou, Guangdong province.

The establishment, which commercializes Havana cigars, is located in the White Swan Hotel, in downtown Guangzhou.

This is the first of several such facilities to be opened in China in a near future to sell the best cigar in the world.

A second Casa del Habano opened in the city of Shenzhen, and similar establishments will open in Shanghai and Beijing in the next few months.
Present at the opening ceremony of Guangzhou’s Casa del Habano, the 91st of its kind in the world, were Manuel García and Evis Placer, vice-presidents of Habanos S.A.

Also present at the event were Julian Fung, CEO of the Hong Kong-based Infifon company, which commercializes Cuban cigars in China, and 100 businesspeople, diplomats and relevant personalities from the city.
