The Bride of the Red Sea

The commercial and entertainment capital of Saudi Arabia, Jeddah offers a dazzling range of sites and activities combined with mouthwatering cuisine.

Sightseeing in Jeddah includes a huge stone wall featuring a number of gates, and a traditional urban core with many old-style houses and mosques. The city also offers a plethora of shopping options for tourists, from traditional souks to top-notch multi-level malls.

Where to stay

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.
