Jeddah City Guide

Brief History

The Red Sea coastline of Saudi Arabia, where Jeddah is located, is a region of critical historical importance to the country. Jeddah is the nearest port Mecca, the desert town that is known for being the birthplace of Islam, so it has seen countless travelers over the centuries. Today, the city’s beautiful location on the Red Sea makes it the most popular tourist destination in Saudi Arabia, and flights to Jeddah come in from all over the world to bring visitors to this picturesque seaside town.

Transportation

Jeddah’s King Abdulaziz International Airport is the largest in the kingdom of Saudi Arabia, and was recently renovated to make it more easy for foreigners to navigate. The airport also serves pilgrims on their way to Mecca, so many flights to Jeddah are undertaken for religious reasons. Despite its size and popularity, however, there is no public transportation from the airport into Jeddah proper. The only way to get into town is to take a taxi.

Jeddah itself is not known for its public transportation. While there are buses, some privately-owned and others operated by the government, they do not follow a set schedule and you can end up waiting for a very long time. They are a great way to experience Saudi Arabia’s culture and language, but they are not recommended for tourists on a tight schedule. The only other ways to get around are by taxi, by rental car, or on foot

Popular Attractions

  • al-Balad, the old city of Jeddah, is the location of many ancient buildings. You can still see the gates of the old city walls, as well as numerous historic structures. This neighborhood is also the location of many of Jeddah’s souqs, or marketplaces.
  • Jeddah’s Corniche is a long seaside walk with beautiful views of the Red Sea and the city’s many ports. King Fahd Fountain, the tallest fountain in the world, shoots a jet of water over 1,000 feet into the air, and is visible from the Corniche.
  • Sail Island has a large, shady water park that provides an ideal way to cool off from the hot sun.
  • Jeddah, like much of Saudi Arabia, is a favorite destination for shoppers, and the city offers dozens of different malls to choose from.

Food

There are a large number of restaurants in Jeddah offering cuisine from all over the world. The best local delicacy to try is a shawarma – spit-roasted chicken or beef served in a pita sandwich with vegetables and Arabian spices. You can also get homus (hummus), the famous chickpea dish served with pita bread, as this is a local specialty.

Tips for Travelers

  • When you go out to eat, be aware that most restaurants have separate sections for single men and for families. Couples who are unmarried will still be seated in the family section without question.
  • While it is not as strictly enforced as in other parts of the country, Islamic law is in effect throughout Saudi Arabia. This governs things like the consumption of alcohol, and mandates certain forms of dress in certain areas. Read up on Saudi Arabia’s legal system to make sure you don’t inadvertently break any laws.
