    Al-Corniche: Along the Corniche

    corniche at sunset

    There is probably nowhere more spectacular, here in Saudi, than Jeddah's floodlit Corniche in the evening, where over 400 open-air sculptures provide a feast for the eye.
    The gigantic King's Fountain, situated opposite Al-Salam Palace, is just across the water. Floodlit by night, the fountain is visible for miles around.

    Dress Code: Women should wear an abbeya and carry a headscarf. Men should wear long trousers.

    Al-Corniche: Picnicking on the Corniche

    picnicking families on the corniche

    After the Mahgreb (sunset) prayer, the Corniche springs into life, with Saudi families dining al fresco.
    Picnicking is a favourite local hobby, and is regarded as an ideal opportunity to get together for a family chat and a substantial supper.
    Vendors with handcarts roam the beach, selling candy floss, fizzy drinks and spicy chickpeas

    Jeddah Saudi Arabia

    People enjoy window shopping because they
    close at a late time.

    You could practice walking while eating
    something or go to fancy restaurant. You also
    could walk by the beach or go to amusement
    parks.

    There are some roofless coffees to enjoy the
    beautiful winter in the city. Winter in Jeddah is
    spring to some countries. People enjoy
    playing cards in those particular places and
    smoke Shesha 'traditional water pipe'.

    I was reading members view regarding
    nightlife in Jeddah or Saudi Arabia in
    general. It was really disappointing because
    nightlife dose not mean Bars and clubs. It is
    more then that. A big city like Jeddah has
    different things to do.

    Still if you are a party person you could attend
    mix gender parties (PRIVET).
