Smoking Shisha In Jordan

Smoking shisha is a popular activity in Jordan, and can enjoyed all over the country (unlike drinking, which is not a large part of the culture) as it is a big part of socializing in the culture. Also known as Hubbly Bubbly, you’ll first choose a molasses-flavored tabacco — some of which include apple, melon, lemon mint, fruit salad, pineapple and vanilla — before being brought a hookah that vaporizes the smoke which passes through a water basin before begin inhaled. The result is a relaxing and flavorful experience.

    Where I live, hookah/sheeshah/water pipes got insanely popular during a certain summer or two, and now all the cool kids like them. But what they don’t quite do correctly is that certain cultures will avoid using flavored tobacco, and instead chop up fresh fruit to mix with the coals. It’s glorious.

    Big fan of the hookah… i always think if everyone sat down and smoked a little… what a different world we’d live in.
    stay adventurous, Craig

      @Craig- Ha! Love that philosophy. Also, I think I sense an idea for our next NYC blogger event 🙂

    I also loved my visit to Jordan as well! Such an amazing country and smoking hookah is such an awesome social pastime of theirs.
