Where can I buy rolling tobacco in Silom? The tobacco they sell at the 7-Eleven I went to is awful and I can’t smoke it.

The best place to buy rolling tobacco in Silom is at the The Session which is a specialist tobacco shop that opened in December 2017. It is located on Floor G of the Silom Complex Department Store at 191 Silom Road. The Silom Complex Department Store is on the south side of the Silom Road very close to Sala Daeng BTS Station. It is also on the same side of the road as the Silom MRT (metro) station 230 metres walk down the Silom Road.
The department store stays open until 21.00 every day of the year.
Products on sale at The Session
The Session is a specialist tobacconist store selling a wide range of product at reasonable prices. They stock Drum, Golden Virginia, Maya, Che, Mcbaren, Raw Excellent and Amsterdamer brands of rolling tobacco. A 50 gram packet of Golden Virginia rolling tobacco currently costs 389 THB and if you are after a real bargain then consider buying a 40 gram packet of Maya Virginia Tobacco for only 195 THB, tastes the same as the better known brand but costs only half the amount.
This shop also sells pipe tobacco, equipment for pipe smokers, lot of different types of cigars, and a very wide range of cigarette rolling papers. For a full list of their products check out their website. There are very few specialist tobacco shops in Bangkok and you won’t find many other places in Bangkok with as wide a range of tobacco related products.
