WHERE TO BUY SNUS IN THAILAND
Not so long ago snus was almost impossible to find in Thailand. Nowadays things have changed a lot with snus and nicotine pouches being available in a wide variety of locations and online with shipping available to all corners of the kingdom.
Up until recently the only snus available in Thailand was either brought in by travelers for re-sale, which is illegal, or it was locally produced, which was cheaper but not to everyone’s taste (to be polite). The snus that was brought in illegally could be found for sale, often at highly inflated prices, at a few bars around the country but mainly in Bangkok. This meant there was very little choice and you’d end up paying through the teeth for products that weren’t your favorite.
Now snus and nicotine pouches from a variety of Swedish, and other, manufacturers are available with the simple click of the mouse or you can pop to your local pub, bar or store to pick some up. The website with the largest selection of snus by far is www.thailandsnus.com with snus and pouches by Siberia, Oden’s, White Fox, Klint, 77, Grant and many more and new products are being added all the time. Prices are realistic too, which makes ordering from there a better option than having it sent in from oversea as we all know how often packages go missing here or are intercepted by customs. You can order online and pay by either bank transfer or cash on delivery (COD).
In Bangkok you can now order online and get your order delivered by bike within an hour or so by ordering through www.zippbike.com. They deliver to your condo, hotel or residence and can do COD, card payments, bank transfers, etc. Perfect if you’re in a hurry. They also have a shop in Sukhumvit Soi 6, Bangkok and Soi Welcome Town, Pattaya which is just off Central Pattaya Road in the middle of town.
Many bars, restaurants and shops now stock snus and this is a list of just a few in each area, the list is always growing:

We also hear rumors that in the very near future snus and pouches will also be available at Emporium, EmQuartier, Siam Paragon and Bluport (Hua Hin). We’ll update you as soon as we know more but this is a huge step forward for all buyers.
New snus outlets are now opening all the time in Thailand in all areas but already there’s a huge number of outlets compared with a few years ago and if there isn’t one near you or you find it easier to order online just go to www.thailandsnus.com and you’ll have it delivered to your hotel or wherever you’re staying within a day or two. It’s getting easier by the day.
