SHANGHAI’S two airports will ban smoking inside terminal buildings from this Sunday.
Shanghai Airport Authority said yesterday all indoor smoking rooms will be closed. The authority has set up outdoor smoking areas and smokers will be guided to these designated areas.
“The new ban is accord with the World Health Organization Framework Convention on Tobacco Control as well as the city’s new smoking control regulation,” an airport authority official said.
The city’s legislative body is evaluating stricter rules that will extend smoking bans to all indoor public venues, including hotels, restaurants, offices, airports and public transport.
Two outdoor smoking areas have been set up at Pudong airport’s T1 terminal, and three have been placed at the T2 terminal at Pudong. Hongqiao airport has two outdoor smoking areas at both its terminal buildings.
The city’s railway stations have also shut down all indoor smoking rooms.(news from the shanghai daily)

I don't think it is a problem as they have a smoking room inside. As for hotels does this also include the rooms? no way will you ever stop them smoking in rooms. I stopped in a hotel in London this week, and guests had a garden outside to smoke, but I cant see Chinese guests smoking outside the hotels in china
if you want something in life get off your backside, and do it yourself!! don't rely on others to do it for you
