Basically, the sheesha itself is a rolled tobacco leaf to which some flavor like apple, mint, hibiscus, ... is added. This package of flavor is placed in a water pipe under a burning charcoal made from the wood of a citrus tree. When inhaled, the smoke passes through a container of water inside the pipe (which makes a quiet, relaxing bubbling sound) to cool the smoke. The cool, flavored smoke is generally puffed or inhaled deeply to obtain the maximum effect of flavor.
Sheesha is generally sold in a sheesha parlor, much like an Egyptian coffee shop. Most of these shops serve (mint) tea, (Turkish) coffee and hot or cold karkade.
For obvious hygienic reasons waterpipes come with new, removable, plastic mouthpieces.

A lot of the hotels use this bus stop around the back of Hard rock cafe, when you arrive you will be pounced on by the shopkeeper 'mario'. he will keep you there for hours given the chance and will sell you his granny! be careful, he will send his little runners to find you what you want, but you will pay for the privilege. shop around in Na'ama first then go back to the bus stop.
Unique Suggestions: when you do go to the shop, the only way to get away is to either say you are meeting someone in town and are late or just be ignorant and walk away. we tried being polite and saying maybe later but he will hassle you for ages.
Fun Alternatives: you cant realy avoid the bus stop, but try to avoid getting dragged in to his shop, and his brothers, and his brothers, ect, ect

Favorite thing: There are several areas in the South Sinaii where Mangroves thrive. The coast of Nabq is one such place. They grow in saline and mixed fresh and saline water -particularly where flood water pours into the sea. The shipwreck off the coast is why the locals call this area 'al-Ghara'na', - 'the drowned'.
