  • The magical Old Jeddah

    by majed81 Written Mar 20, 2005

    What makes Jeddah special is the old city,
    where History engage with current life. Most
    tourists will enjoy walking around the old
    town and its narrow blocks. Watching people
    from all over walking with their traditional
    cloths (Specially from Africa and Asia).
    Shopping for antics and inexpensive
    products made by locals or imported from
    India, Iran, Sudan, Afghanistan…etc.
    Hearing the call for prayers through the
    oldest minaret of the city, and the smell of the
    wood of those old houses.

    I am sure it is unforgettable moment.

    This building is supposed to have been built in the shape of a ship.
    What do you think?

    Unique Suggestions: Take a friend and compare your answers.

    Fun Alternatives: While you're down at the corniche, check out the king's fountain, people watch and soak up the atmosphere of long summer days by the sea.
