I had a relative come from Lebanon a few months back and he said we have way better selections of hookahs here. There they are a lot cheaper in quality in Lebanon, however I bet if you look hard enough you will find something nice but expect to pay the same as here.
Now if your friend is going to hop over to Syria, which is pretty easy from Lebanon I bet they could come up with something nice, again, providing if they look hard enough. Nothing will be like going to Egypt though.

I've been to Israel plenty of times and they have some pretty cool stuff there. Including bedouin homegrown tobacco YUMMY!! They also have handcrafted hookah pipes which is awesome. Its cool to know you own a one of a kind piece. Another thing you could bargain these guys like crazy!! you should definitely tell ur friend to hop over into Israel the land of milk and honey

Going to any Middle Eastern county should be a potential boom in terms of tracking down narghile related stuff.

While I have visted Lebanon a few times on business I never found a lot of time to peruse my love of all things narghile related but even so, I had no trouble finding all sorts of gorgeous rigs of Iranian and Syrian influence and I did get to try some locally made moassel which veried from great to better then average.

My limited experience has also shown the Lebanese to have the charateristic Arab propensity for politeness and hospitality so I would assume that how much cool stuff you can find depends upon how much time you have to spend.

my uncle has gotton a bunch of nicely crafted hookahs in lebanon on numerous occassions (from what i was told he purchased them directly from the man that crafted them). Our family is from bikfaya, so my guess would be its somewhere around that area.

Lebanon had the Romans, Crusaders, Abbasids, Phonecians, just to name a few in the area. Many of these empires also expanded to area's such as Greece and Cyprus. Lebanon and Syria are also very similar because until very recently they were one area called "Bilad al-Sham". The creation of the modern borders in lebanon was an act of the French Imperial authority. So what im trying to say is yeah, we got some similarities
