Buying locally in Ottawa, Canada, I've only seen Nakhla. Depending on whether the guy likes you, the price is anywhere from 15-25 bucks. I haven't gotten any under 20 in a long time though.

You can also find soex for 5 bucks for a 50g pack...

Strangely enough, I live in Iraq, but I have not yet seen a shop which sells hookah tobacco. I know there are shops in Baghdad, but the city is off-limits. I get my supplies on line.

I currently purchase 250g of Nakhla at $15 although I have seen some jerkoffs charging up to $30. I have only found one place that sells something other than Nakhla or Soex, and its Al Fakher which they are charging $25 for 250g. Its depressing really.

i called some realtives about this in Lebanon. They say 250g of Nakhle is cheap, around $5 and AF is about $6.
Different pricing accross the world is all due to tobacco tax. Some coutries have them very high like Canada. Tobacco tax actually varies from state to state as well.

Here is Cyprus all i can get is AW and Nakhla both at the same price.
ALWAHA and NAkhla, 50g -- $5.75
250g- $23.75

its cheaper for me to order from USA (5000miles away) than buy locally.

I really think this is a great idea PCServe! You should go back and edit the first post and put in what people say into the first post so new readers don't have to lurk through pages to see the prices. Great idea again bro!

About $20 for 250g of AF here in Australia, bloody poor selection too plus I'd have to pay shipping as well so I just order overseas 250g in each seperate order to avoid Duty issues, ends up as cheap if not cheaper + I get access to a huge range.

Well here in SA:

R20 for 50g Al Fakher ($2.60)
R10 for 50g Al Waha/Nakhla/Havana ($1.30)

Unfortunately we only get 50g packs of shisha around here.

krampi, some sites that have good rep for international sales are:
mnhhookah.com
hookah-shisha.com
alfakheronline.com

these i know that are very good, though i've never dealt with mnhookahs i believe they have the best reputation on the web for international sales (incuding customs avoidance, customer service and shipping prices) and also active members of the community so they can give you better support ( thats why we have to support them back)

cheers.
