Hookah tobacco is getting more and more popular among youngsters. Even though hookah pipes are not always cheap they are worth the money. It is very important to choose the right hookah, if you want to have a pleasant smoking experience.

Before buying a hookah, follow the following instruction and make the right decision. These tips will indicate what you need to take into consideration when buying a hookah. There are many factors to keep in mind as the origin of the hookah, materials, size and multiple hose options:

  • Modern hookahs are usually made in China. As about traditional hookahs they come from Egypt, Syria, Turkey and other countries from the Middle East. It should be noted that modern ones are manufactured using only up-to-date techniques and equipments while traditional hookahs are made by hand.
  • You have to decide what you will use your hookah for. Is it going to stay only it your home or you are going to take it in your travels? Do you have enough space to keep it? Are you going to use it for instance at some parties, where several people will want to smoke it? Would you like to upgrade it later on?
  • Are you wondering if the size of the hookah matters? There are a lot of debates over whether bigger hookahs are better than smaller ones. The small hookah is usually intended for exclusive use. The bigger hookahs are good for particular occasions, if you plan to throw a party, then this hookah will serve you best. A most appropriate size of the hookah is about 18-30 inches. This is the size most people can easily store. A hookah that is intended to stay in a particular place can be bigger as a decorative object, but it is not practical for every-day use.
  • Besides the size, you should also take a look at the material of hookah, as only in the best quality hookah you can prepare an amazing hookah tobacco and feel a greatest pleasure. Most hookah connoisseurs state that brass pipes are the best, as the smoking process lasts longer. However, here there is a problem, as brass pipes require frequent polishing in order to keep them shine. Other hookah lovers give preference to combinations of stainless steel with brass.
  • If usually you smoke hookah alone, then one-hose hookah is good. But traditionally hookah smoking is a social activity, so you will need at least 2 hoses. The majority of stems have the capability to add a hose with an adapter, but three or four hookahs are more expensive.
