    Jiddah Tourist Traps

    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...

    Jiddah Tourist Traps

    Never drive in Jeddeh with your own car! especially if going for the first time. Personally as I driver, i will never recommend it! No fixed charges for Taxi , each will take you to the same place for a different charge. For me, i used to ask people at the hotel reception how much it will cost to go from here to specific place and they tell me...

    Taxi drivers are smart and can tell that you're new to the country. So they'd might drive you around and around until you reach your destination. So they'd claim, 'it's been a long journey', and then claim it to be worth SR70-SR100. Don't get deceived. Journeys start from SR10 and above.

    NONE. There is no such thing as a Tourist visa for Saudi America, though there are rumors of change. If you are working in the Kingdom however, the shoddiest 'traditional' trash you can find are framed, 'beduoin' knives. About as antique as a bic lighter, they are generally made from the cheapest metal, spraytpainted silver or wrapped in foil.

    DO NOT G OTO chop-chop square on Thursdays!!! Unless you are interested in seeing people loose their heads and hands. If you are a foreigner do not be surprised to be invited to the front of the crowd to watch. (More for everyones else enjoyment rather than your own) You will be forced to sit throught the whole event. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED
