Visit Jeddah's Floating Mosque, known for leaving the impression of floating on the water's surface. Situated on the city's corniche on the Red Sea coast, the mosque appears to be floating at high tide. Strolling by the waterfront you can admire the striking building, designed in a traditional Islamic architectural style with modern elements. Illuminated with vibrant colors at night and boasting a scenic sea location, it provides a great backdrop for some postcard-like photos.
