Default Friend going to Turkey sometime soon

So I have a friend going to Turkey sometime probably within the next year. I'm going to give her like a $100 to pick up some stuff. Looking for another pipe, any suggestions on what I should have her look for? I just recently got a KM 36" double pear and was looking for something along those lines, maybe a little smaller as the size can be a pain. Any suggestions would help.

Its going to be hard to find a hookah in Turkey that isn't Turkish, i'm not sure if they even have KMs in Turkey. She is just gonna have to search hard to find one.

Be careful it may not be worth the trouble as i just found out in Turkey you are looking at a lot of stuff aimed at the tourist not the smoker. Hookahs are everywhere out there and i dont mean the really deal. You would have to try find a good actual shop that specialising in them

Serbetli tobacco is lovely. I had strawberry and the flavour was immense. It's dirt cheap too. I could have picked some up for 3 for 250gr. Wish I had now but that was before I decided to buy a hookah. Most of the pipes are cheapo toursit souvenirs tho

I was in Turkey earlier this year. I saw, and smoked, some really sweet hookahs while I was there. There are alot of hookahs for sale that are for "presentation only", and not so much for smoking. Her best bet would be to talk to some people at the hookah lounges, they will be able to show her what to get and where to get it.

If a hookah is too expensive, get a Turkish hose for your KM. A couple of places I smoked there, the hoses were HUGE. The stiff "stick" part of the hose, where the mouth piece fits, must have been 3 feet long and covered in velvet. They were some sweet hoses, they were probably my favorite part of smoking there.

As for tobacco, since you can get Nahkla here, I would get some local Turkish tobacco, Serbetli I think it is called.

My friend got his first hookah from turkey that was ridiculously nice. The tobacco he got had Sadam's face on it that was like a kick in the ass. The flavour was so immense. Don't think the baccy is still around now though. I know with searching you can find some amazing stuff.
