Default I am going to Egypt!!

Hey everyone, in May I am going to Egypt for seven days! I am very excited of course. As you may expect I am going to go completely Hookah/moassel mad when I am out there and I am going to stock up for the foreseeable future.

The particular area I am going to is Sharm el-Sheikh so if anyone has been there and knows of any good places to purchase Hookahs and moassel please let me know. Any other advice and tips on purchasing Hookahs and Egypt in general would be appreciated.

Cheers!

Thanks for the tips Tunisiano. How much did you bring back? I brought back a couple kg's of AF from Dubai last year and had no issues but I was sweating as I walked through the 'nothing to declare' lol I'll be careful this time.
If the Egyptian's offer still stands I might have to take him up on that lol I might be in Cairo for a day. His pictures were helpful.

Wow luck my friend just went to Cairo hes not a hookah smoker, but he said he and some friends went to a shop just outside of cairo that had tones of pipes and shisha Ill try to find out the name. But your best bet is to contact The Egyptian through a pm or email. Have fun and load up make sure you take some pics and try and find some unique stuff!

A friend of mine went to Cairo last year, he said that he could buy hookah tobacco like anywhere in Cairo.

Thats awesome! So am I! The wife and I are going to Europe for a few weeks in May and will be stopping in Cairo for 3 days on the way home. Can't wait. Will definitely be checking out Khan El Khalili Bazaar i.e. Hookah Heaven.

I am really looking forward to it. Hopefully I'll get to go to Cairo and check out the markets.
Has anybody been to Sharm el-Sheikh?

i believe patelbadboi went to sharm last year, try and drop him a pm as well... a lot of friends i know have gone on holiday to sharm and have gone on an excursion to cairo, and i don't think it's too expensive either
I didnt even bring that much back, like 2kgs tops but a lot of them were 50g and 250g packs, some of it the guy didnt find, but got away with it, he gave me some leaflet and told me to read through it and make sure it doesnt happen again lol

Mizo Peach, Gum, Watermelon, Lemon, Guva, and Mint are all really good in my opinion. I didnt care for the apricot, or the grape.

Hello
i was in sharm el sheik for 1year ago in the sealife resort.

The first time in egypt is very funny... when you go to the city, every shop has someone who stand on the street and want that you come in. Its very stressful.
We have buyed there a Shisha for 60€ (~ 95$) inclusive 2kg Nakhla Tobacco.
This Shisha was good at the first time, again 1 month the shisha was terrible.
You must deal a lot, i buyed a shirt there from "Armani" *gg*.

The Seller wanted 20€, again thirty hours!!! i went out of the shop and i have buy the shirt for 5€.

Keep up

Thanks for the tips guys. I should be able to pick up a lot of Hookahs and Moassel for cheap but just have to make sure I haggle for a bargain. Patelbadboy told me I should just haggle for anything I pay for from food to taxis lol
