Jeddah

Souq shopping by the Red Sea

Featuring the famed and lively Jeddah Corniche waterfront area, Saudi Arabia's commercial capital is renowned in the region as a tourist haven. Embark on your exploration of the city starting with the old town area, where al Balad showcases a fascinating maze of ancient buildings and traditional markets. Get a great view of Jeddah from the top floor of the famous Naseef House which is also a museum.

In the afternoon head onto the Corniche for a spectacular view of the Red Sea and sculptures that dot the shoreline. Follow up with the Tahliya street for great souvenirs and drop by the Gold Souq for gold. Do not miss out on the King Fahd Fountain as it is the biggest in the world.
