Globe Roundabout, Jeddah

3.2
A colossal glass-and-steel monument, Globe Roundabout looms over its surrounding traffic circle. Designed by Spanish architect Julio Lafente, the work makes up one of many monument squares and roundabouts scattered across the city, many of which feature work by the same artist. The giant globe lights up at night, glowing turquoise against the evening sky. Use our Jeddah trip planning website to add Globe Roundabout and other attractions to your Jeddah vacation plans.

  • Beautiful roundabout. The terracing and landscaping is beautiful, and I like the globe. Jeddah does a great job at making roundabouts look really nice.
  • Beautiful Globe of the earth circle, one side leading to Royal Palace when coming from Royal Airport side. The other side is leading to North Obhur and Sharm Obhur when coming from King Abdul Aziz Road. The Globe is a posh area with two mall Roshan just close and Red Sea Mall just few kilometers
  • I used to come to this place when I was younger with my parents and relatives,, having barbecue or just fooling around. There were not such many buildings like nowadays. I still come to this emotional place with my own family.
  • I remember this from my childhood. At that time it seems to be a very far away place.
  • This sculpture has an emotional value to people who've been living or visiting Jeddah for a long time. It's usually beautiful when cleaned, but lately it was ruined with all the national flags around it.

Where to stay in Jeddah

A major pilgrimage and commercial site with large numbers of visitors year-round, Jeddah offers a wide range of accommodations, ranging from low-budget to super deluxe. Hotels spread primarily along the north part of the town port, with another large cluster found in Mecca. Beachfront establishments can be found predominantly in Atallah Happy Land Park in the north, and in Al Hamra’a next to the port, while budget hotels are scattered around Al Faisaliyah. You can find most major international chain hotels throughout the city. Outside Hajj season, accommodation in Jeddah is generally cheaper than that in Riyadh.
