  • Interesting place to visit. The whole place smells sweet. Entry is free. If you get there at the right timing, you will be able to see the process of how the human workers package the cigarettes. Sadly, when we arrived in the late afternoon, there were no more workers working.

The design and layout is nice, you can see photo and memorabilia displayed, you can also see the worker from above doing their job.
