Default What to get from Turkey?

A friend of mine is going to Turkey in Ankara,and I told him to get me a hookah,but i don't know what to tell him to look for.
I don't want to be very expensive,in the range of 80 $ ,but to have quality to.
I saw on the internet Al Fakher and Khalil Mamoon,both are very nice,but cost a bit,I wonder if he will find those brands there and much cheaper.
I want a nice hookah,and I want to be an egyptian one.
What do you think I should do?

tell him to change course to Egypt

nah seriously, check this post
http://www.hookahpro.com/forum/showthread.php?t=11029
that post contains basicly all the info you need to pick a Hookah, i know it doesnt say much about hookahs from Turkey but you should be able to figure out what kind of setup you want such as stem/hose/bowl/vase etc..

if that doesnt help, tell him to take a few photos and send you a mail with what they got and take it from there..

Good luck!

Thanks!
I don't know what to choose yet.
Khalil Mamoon and Al Fakher sonds good,but expensive.
I like the Syrian brass,but not my style.I think I will tell him to take photos.

In turkey you will have hard time finding any other shisha then their own brand: Serbetli..
I have only tried two flavours of this brand though,.. But One of them was one of the best smokes Ive had. It's kind of famous amongs us who have ever tried it cus its said to be the best DoubleApple , and I can only agree..
Serbetli - Double Apple .. Try it man !

Yeah, Serbetli has some really good flavors. I would also tell you, to give it a try. I'm not a big fan of Banana and Coconut flavors, but i had them from this brand and both of them were great

Tombac bowls!
And lotsa tombac to go in 'em!

Which, of course, several members of this forum would be willing to purchase from you.

he should bring you some Serbetli tobacco instead of a pipe!
90% of the turkish pipes are crap. just made for the dumb tourists from all over the world.
but Serbetli tobacco is one of the best traditional brands in the world! much better than al fakher, nakhla and everything else from the orient.

From Romania,it's a country in Europe.
I remember that it was a 150 or 200 grams box...anyway,smelled pretty good.
What they had there was Serbetli Orange and Bananas I think.
