Default Re: going to turkey need help

Look around. There are absolutely loads of places that sell them. One example...I could have picked up a 24" in case with coals, foil, tongs and 200gr serbatli shisha for 17!!!

Wish I had now. There are a lot for touristy decoration only, but loads of places which offer hookah smoking. Ask there, and they will tell you where to get a good one. In turkey, they call them shisha pipes or water pipes. Maybe they just called them that to tourists lol.

Also, haggle. They expect it, but trying to get any more than 30% off will be seriously pushing it, but is possible, and the more you buy in that store, the better chance of big discounts.

Lots of nice shisha there, but be wary. Try to get the stuff with a tobacco warnign on the front. Serbatli strawberry is awesome.

Just keep your eyes peeled and use your sense... After all, Turkey is 'The land of the Genuine Authentic Replica' hahaha
