No Smoking Ban

Restaurants, bars and Internet cafes in Beijing have been exempted from a proposed public smoking ban in response to a backlash from business owners.

However, these venues will be required to separate smoking and non-smoking areas from May 1 as part of the new regulations.

Beijing had planned to ban or restrict smoking in most public places, as part of its pledge to hold a smoke-free Olympics.

Only government offices, schools, museums, hospitals and sports venues will be designated smoke-free areas.
