Al Corniche, Jiddah
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.
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

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
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).
