    Smile Hookah store / shop in Pattaya?

    Hey, in a few short months ill finally be back in Thailand. Ill be staying in Laemchabang with my Girlfriend and her Family. One of my top priorities is to find my self a hookah to buy ( not find a hookah lounge) Im looking for a place preferably in Pattaya or near Laemchabang that sells Hookahs, Coals, Bowls, Hoses, Shisha, etc. Id be willing to drive around 4-6 hrs if anyone knows of a good place outside of the area. Im an avid hookah smoker and id love to get one there. I first thought i would bring one here but people brought up the problems that it would be hard to bring tobacco because there is a limit and that the customs might confiscate the hookah because its a water pipe. If anyone knows any place and would be willing to help me out i would greatly appreciate it!

    Thanks so much!

    I realize that hookahs can be found in lots of markets in Thailand. Im looking more for a legit hookah store with actual and quality products rather than some random crap from china.

    In Pattaya you will find all you need in the Arab quarter in South Pattaya. Soi 16 & 17 off Walking Street is where you want to be.

    Unfortunately you need to be 21 to buy a hookah.

    Wow that sucks. Good thing people in thailand are pretty bad at checking ID's since i was going to insomnia and all the walking street clubs when i was 15 haha. Does the 21 years of age apply to renting a hookah at a club too?

    Surely smoking these revolting rag head devices is illegal inside a club or pub? probably get away with it in soi 3 with all the arabs, not really a Thai thing is it.

    All over thailand pubs have hookahs to use. Examples are insomnia, differ, and many through out chonburi bangkok phuket and chiangmai. They arent illegal to have. You should try one sometime. They are nothing like cigarettes and they have many awesome flavors. Try before u bash =D

    I solved my problem by shipping a hookah + all its accessories to my gf in thailand. I figured it would save me some trouble at customs. And i also figured id get a quality one here so i could leave it there. Thanks for the answers though i will definitely be checking those places out for some flavors.

    The risk of lung cancer from hookahs is huge. I would stay well clear.
