Sheesha (Flavoured Tobacco), Dubai
What to buy:
Choose your favourite flavour - apricot, strawberry, apple, coffee, strawberry, cherry...
it's very thick and gooey and you need a shisha pipe to smoke it.
It won't work in a normal pipe or cigarette!
What to pay: 10-30 dhs
You don't have to be a smoker to enjoy shisha. I am not a smoker, but i enjoy smoking shisha once in a while with some friends. Just chilling out and chit chat. There are a lot places that sell shisha pipe, i would suggest to buy it from a small shops around Naif Road area or spice souq area. The price slightly higher if you buy from Deira City Center or handicraft shops. The rule again...BARGAIN.
What to buy: Shisha and plenty of different tobacco flavour. Try apple or mint flavour, these are popular ones.
What to pay: One shisha pipe depends on the sizes, medium size cost around AED80.
You can get them from souvenir shops, but it is cheaper to get them from Carrefour because that is where most of the locals buy their bits from these days (there are two, one at Shindagha and one in City Centre)
What to buy: You can buy a whole kit - glass pipe, mouthpiece, tongs and a packet of tobacco - for 30dhs approx in Carrefour.
Posher and bigger shishas come in carry bags or boxes.
What to pay: 30dhs upwards, depends whether they are mass market or handmade.
