Default Traveling with my Rig.. HELP

Hey guys/gals..


So this coming summer I am gonna be honeymooning in the Dominican (punts cana)..

I already have a vision in my head of lighting a nice bowl and blowing smoke in the Dominican summer might breeze..

My question is this.. How do I get it there? Should I mail it to the hotel? Can i have it as a carry on? Should I heavily package it and just check it in as a cargo bag? Mailing it makes me nervous.. Not that it's a expensive rig. It just has lot if sentimental value, I've had many great times with it and would hate for it to get lost in transit across the globe..

How would you guys tackle this feat? I really need to bring it with me!

Thanks guys! Happy Smoking

Go out an buy a MYA petite or QT something cheap and quality that way if something does happen to it, its not the end of the world. Then wrap it in beach towels and throw it in with your checked luggage. Problem solved!

Either buy a cheap one there or pack it in your suitcase amongst your clothes... Thought that would have crossed your mind already :/

idk about international flights, but on domestics, i've never had problems with taking hookahs through security, but those also werent solids, also, they didnt like metal tobacco tins, but they just an my bag again with the tins separate and everything was good. they might be pickier on international though.

FedEx international packages could be costly.

Op I personally recommend buy a mya petite. It's small so it doesn't take up that much space. And you should take tobacco sealed in its original packaging just to be on the safe side.

Cheap rig would definitely be the way to go. Unless you can fit it onto your carryon. If you would have to send it or take an additional checked luggage, it really wouldnt be worth it.

I personally would go the MYA Petite solution myself if you must smoke shisha in DR. If it were me though, I'd be smoking way too many cigars down there to even miss my hookah!!!

Ok cool guys. Seems like a big pain in the ass.. Maybe I'll just look for one there or stuff it between my clothes in my suitcase.

Hopefully I can find one there. Maybe I'll start looking at smoke shops in the Dominican on the Internet lol
