    Mall of Arabia: One of the biggest mall if not the biggest in KSA

    by June.b Written Dec 29, 2012

    Probably one of the biggest mall in Saudi Arabia, the Mall of Arabia boast an area of more than 260,000 sqm., housing on 3 floors, several famous brands like Mango, Promod, Desigual, Zara, Bershka, H&M, GAP, Next, Banana Rep., electronics shops, home furnishings, supermarket and department stores.

    There are also restaurant and cafe and everything you need all in its huge roof.

    The parking lot at the basement - albeit confusing, hard to find the exit - is vast and very neat.

    And even if you;re not buying anything, just hanging out inside the mall is a pleasant activity and one of the local's fun way of relaxing. Very spacious and good architectural design and colourful.

    Weekdays are good, you can feel the spacious ambience, the mall hosts a lot of people during the weekends.

    What to buy: fashionable clothing & shoes, electronic items, home furnishings, etc...

    MAC: make up by boys

    by TomorrowsAngel Written May 30, 2004

    MAC in Hera

    Cosmetics and perfume are a lot cheaper here than in Western countries.
    But you kinda have to know exactly what you're shopping for, and do some product research first because (apart from womens-only floor of Kingdom in Riyadh) all the sales assistants are men. Some of them know what they are talking about productwise, but most don't.

    What to buy: MAC is about 25% cheaper here than in NZ, and the new collections hit the shelves a lot sooner.

    Hera`a International market.: Hera'a International Souk

    by TomorrowsAngel Updated Aug 15, 2003

    hera'a

    Hera was the first shopping mall built in Jeddah, it has been expanded in the last couple of years and is now 112,000m sq big.
    It has a mixture of popular international brands - such as Zara, Mango, Mothercare, Colours of Bennetton, Laura Ashley, Espirit. And some good local shops - Al Mustab, Danube.
    There is a children's play area with rides.
    Eating facilities - McDonalds, Fuddruckers, coffee shops (Cafe Du Lord and couple of others), Starbucks, KFC, Pizza Hut.

    What to buy: Parking for 1,500 cars but it can get congested around the main entrances at peak times.
    At the moment there is increased security, so only 1 entrance is open - so it gets pretty crowded at night.

    What to pay: Sales are on in June, August and December - you can pick up brand clothing for up to 75% off.
