Default Stocking up!

Hi
Im traveling through Doha in a few weeks, does anyone know if they sell the Al Fakher Brand there at the airport or how much it costs? Im kinda new to the shisha but Al Fakher seems to be like Dunhill cigarettes of the shisha world very expensive.

I have never seen shisha in an airport, however i'm not usually looking for it there either. Oh and for the record AF shisha is pretty inexpensive when compared to other brands like Starrbuzz, social smoke and romman.

it depends on several things, what kind of flavors do you typically like and do you want them to taste like candy? Are you a fan of getting buzzes from smoking shisha or do you not like them, and do you really like having huge fluffy clouds while smoking? There are many different types of shisha out there and every brand has their great, good, decent and crappy flavors so its hard to say which brand is better than the rest because it is all a matter of personal opinion. Me being a SB (starbuzz) hater i absolutely prefer AF (Al Fakher) to almost any SB tobacco.

i would have to disagree guys.

over seas they do sell shisha in airports. i actually bought a very very very nice watermelon (best i have every had) at an airport in dubai or india (cant remember) it want a brand i could recognize because of all of the arabic writing but it was a dryer blend that looked like nakala. smoked like SB, large clouds, potent flavor. wow. hahahahaha

AF is pretty inexpensive, and i would have to agree depends on your taste but SB is good if you like strong candy flavors and af is just a good brand

a few years back AF used to be one of the best brands. since then it has gone downhill. however it is a very inexpensive shisha compared to others. u can pick AF up fo $10-$15 in the US and wen i went dubia it was a cheap as $5.
it is a mid range shisha. dose not pack a huge buzz for new smokers has some gd flavours and really gd clouds

As others have pointed out, there many brands of shisha/tobacco available. Since you're new to the hobby I suggest you try as many brands and flavours as possible (with the exception of brands like Al-waha and Afzal because IMO they're generally not that great) so that you can make up your own mind as to what brand and flavours you prefer.

You must keep in mind that some tobacco brands are only available in certain countries whereas others are widely available so depending on where you live in the world you might have a limited selection to chose from.

What i did was went to hookah-shisha.com and got like 100 dollars worth of 50g Boxes to see which flavors i liked. Then when i know which ones i like i will buy bigger amounts of those types. Plus if you buy more than 100 dollars they give you a free hookah

You should just hit up some smoke shops around where you live and see what selection they have. try all the brands you can get locally before buying online, as shipping tends to make things more expensive unless youre buying in bulk. happy smoking!
