Thuốc lào Vĩnh Bảo (Hải Phòng City) is the favorite kind for Hà Nội people. The box for thuốc lào is made of the skins of pomelos, oranges, and tangerines which are pressed and dried to become as hard as tanned leather. This box helps keep thuốc lào soft, fragrant and dry.
In the past, hubble-bubbles, along with betel-trays, and tea sets, were indispensable things to welcome guests in families in Việt Nam in general and in Thăng Long in particular.

Thuốc lào (pipe tobacco) is a very popular smoke of Vietnamese people, mainly for men. Thuốc lào (nicotiana rusticum L) comes from a plant with wide, soft leaves with sticky hairs. Some people smoke by rolling the tobacco in a piece of banana leaf or a piece of paper into the size of a little finger. The majority of people, however, use a hubble-bubble. There are different kinds of hubble-bubble: điếu bát which is popular in most families; điếu ống which is used in rich families; and, điếu cày which is used by working class.
