About Jeddah

Jeddah is the second largest city in Saudi Arabia after Riyadh. It is notable as a stopping point for passengers who make the muslim pilgrimage to Mecca. While in the city, visitors can visit the shoreline of the Red Sea, the ancient city, Al-Balad, the Sharbatly and Naseef homes, the Kral Fahd Fountain, and the Durrat Al-Arouse Tourism District.

It is a city of wide avenues and luxury shopping centers. It does not offer much in the way of entertainment due to the very conservative culture of Saudi Arabia but there are shops and malls selling almost any type of product one could imagine. The most famous of these shopping areas is Tahliya Avenue while Mahmood Saeed Alandalus is the world's biggest shopping center.

Located in one of the most conservative and religious countries in the world, women are required to be completely covered when in the city and no alcohol is sold at all. Every dining place is closed during the month of Ramadan and women are not allowed to drive. However, there are some private beaches to visit on the shores of the Red Sea.

The city has a desert climate, with hot and dry summers. While all visitors must pay attention to their clothing, the city also has a low crime rate. Most outdoor stores are also closed during the day, due to the heat, but open and become lively at night.
