Things to do in Jeddah
Old City, or Al-Balad, is the historical center of Jeddah and one of the last remaining ones in Saudi Arabia that is still inhabited. The Al-Balad Historical District, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, plays home to the Gate to Mekkah, just one of the many attractions you’ll see here. Stroll through the city center and visit the Nassif House, a museum and cultural center which often hosts lecture events and contains a collection of artwork. The building itself once had a whopping 106 rooms, and was made famous wen Kin Abdulaziz inhabited it. Today, the house has a rooftop terrace which gives way to beautiful views of the city. The entire district is a must-see on your trip to Jeddah, so don’t miss out on this exceptional cultural experience! The Jeddah Cornich is a popular coastal area where families can hit the beach and enjoy the weather. Located along the Red Sea, the Corniche features rocky shores, large sculptures, and the highest fountain in the world, King Fahd’s Fountain. The Southern Corniche holds over 25 bronze sculptures made by world renowned artists, many restaurants, hotels, and a mall. The Northern Corniche is packed with playgrounds, amusement parks, landscaping, and space for families to enjoy the ocean view. In addition, the Northern Corniche is home to the famous Fatima Al-Zahra Mosque, or the Floating Mosque. This place of worship is actually built in the sea, so at high tide, it appears to be floating in the water. Stroll along the seashore and enjoy all the sights, but don’t forget to take a peek out at the water when the sun is going down—the Corniche is one of the best places in Jeddah to watch the sunset as it slowly drifts below the Red Sea. The Red Sea offers visitors some of the best snorkeling and diving in the country. Slip into some diving gear and hop into the warm water where you’ll swim past shipwrecks, brightly colored corals, and plenty of unique fish native to the area. See manta rays, sharks, starfish, and sea anemones as you make your way through the Red Sea. The best way to explore the designated dive sites is to go through a diving company. Get a taste of the marine life that lies just below the surface of the Red Sea on your trip to Jeddah.
Day Trips from Jeddah
A two-hour drive east of Jeddah will take you around the holy city of Mecca (non-Muslims are not allowed to travel through or visit it) and into Taif. Here, in the City of Roses, you’ll smell the fragrant Taif roses, the production of which dates back to more than 100 years. With around 700 rose farms in the region, it’ll be a challenge not to get a whiff of the delightful scent. While in Taif, you’ll also get to visit museums, the ancient ruins of the Taif historical wall, and have the opportunity to take a ride in a cable car above the gorgeous mountains that surround the city. Stop by the Taif Zoo for a fun day with the kids where they’ll see lions, elephants, and even tigers! The Taif National Park is one of the more modern parks established by the Saudi Arabian government and features natural scenery including rare wild herbs. Visit the Shubra Palace, where both King Abdul-Aziz and King Faisal both used as a place to preside the Cabinet during summers. Visitors also travel to Taif to partake in mountain climbing, as the city is close in proximity to many mountains.

Transportation in Jeddah
The easiest way to get to Jeddah is to fly into King Abdulaziz International Airport. From the airport, take a taxi the short distance to Old City or the coast and let the cab driver get you where you need to be. Jeddah has a public bus system, the SAPTCO, that will take you to your day trip destination of Taif, but also to other major cities across the country. A car is not recommended, as driving in Saudi Arabia and Jeddah itself can be very challenging. Many roads lack street signs, drivers can be erratic, and it is very easy to get lost.
