According to the survey, the most unsatisfactory areas for smoking banning are the bars / dance halls (69.6%), the cafes / entertainment halls (60.1%) and leisure services (43.2%).

Subject to the relevant regulations, 50 to 500 Yuan fine. If the place managers are not actively involved in tobacco control, will be fine 1 - 3 million.
