Smoke Arabian hookah

#38 of 74 things to do in Dubai
The atmosphere of the Middle East predisposes to smoke some hookah. Hookah is already a tradition in Dubai. Locals smoke it almost all the time. Here they usually serve a personal hookah to each person instead of using one for all company.

By the way, Arabs are not very preoccupied with hookah preparation. The recipe of its preparation is rather simple. They say local hookah is really incomparable. The reason is an excellent construction and the quality of tobacco which is produced not far from Dubai.

Interesting fact: shisha smoking is a custom which was brought to the UAE from the outside. In the Emirates, they used to smoke medwakh, a small smoking pipe made of wood with a small bowl (tobacco chamber) for mere 3-4 pulls.
