Highlights

Al Balad Old Town

Nowhere highlights the city’s blending of old and new more than in the UNESCO-listed historical centre, Al Balad, the city where (according to local lore) Eve was laid to rest. Alongside its ancient merchant houses, vibrant souqs, traditional bakeries and the renowned Nasseef House (once home to the former king of Saudi Arabia Abdulaziz Ibn Saud in 1925), it also looks towards the future. A recent renaissance has seen empty spaces transformed into contemporary cafés, art galleries and woodwork workshops.

Jeddah Corniche

Jeddah Corniche

Stretching for four kilometres along the Red Sea Coast, the Jeddah Corniche promises to give you that true holiday feeling. Stroll in the sunshine along its lushly landscaped walkways, passing sandy bays, bustling piers, restaurants, sculptures and the world’s tallest fountain. At 300-metres tall, King Fahd’s Fountain offers a moving and utterly spectacular water show, which is particularly magical at sunset.

Tayebat Museum

For an in-depth look at Jeddah’s history, don’t miss a visit to the Tayebat Museum, located at Jeddah’s seaport (which is one of the oldest in the Gulf and the gateway to the pilgrimage city of Makkah). It houses a carefully curated collection of exhibits in building that recreates the traditional Hijazi architecture of the old city, with bay windows overlaid with intricate wooden lattice work and ornate coral masonry. There’s a floor dedicated to the history of Islam (including the prominence of the pilgrimage to Makkah), an exhibit on the pre-Islamic history of Jeddah (where settlements are believed to have existed in the 6th century AD) and a feature on the formation of Saudi Arabia into a modern Kingdom.
