Overall Guide : Jeddah is regarded as the greatest open-air art gallery in the world owing to the sculptures and artworks displayed in the city. Besides, the city has various popular beaches and excellent resorts like the Durrat Al-Arus, the Crystal Resort and... more many more.   The Jeddah’s Fountain is a significant landmark of the city. It is the highest fountain in the world and it can be seen from a far distance. It is also listed in the Guinness Book of World Records for being the highest in the world. The Floating Mosque is another attraction housed in the city. The stunning mosque is located in the middle of a sea and is a popular religious site. The Balad marketplace is a vibrant place with retail outlets of textiles, ornaments, household items and much more. The place has an Arabian feel to it with the vibrant brick and stone buildings. The Biet Nassif is a historic landmark preserved by the government with an ancient monument and an old century cannon. The site is of great importance and is visited by most of the tourists visiting Jeddah.

Overall Guide : saudi arabia has the most affordable and enjoyable places to visit and explore. its the best country to live in; i feel that humans have a better freedom to rights in saudi then any other country. a person needs to... more visit and explore things that this country provides to the humanity. many saudi and the resisdents provide a lot of care for their people and others. no other country shows regular gatherings and the type of advice that they give you. i give a lot of credit to the king of saudi and the people who contribute to this fantastic generosity.
Not to be missed the shopping malls , the islamic museums

Overall Guide : Never go out alone esp when you're a Lady. Try to keep low profile. Do not wear anything that catches everybody's attention. Jeddah is a nice country but I can definitely say that its a country of men. It is... more not safe for woman so if you're OFW try to find job not in Middle east.

Overall Guide : If you are willing to get out and about then the Red Sea coral and thousands of variety of undersea life is well worth seeing. You can snorkel off some of the many private beaches. Unofficial access to the water... more could result in the boarder guards chasing you back inland. Further inland there's a volcanic landscape to explore with huge ctarers and lava flows. Be careful where you take photos because some of these volcanos overlook settlements that wish to remain very private.
Not to be missed red sea sail , Al Wahbah , Market Balad

Overall Guide : Very hot place and people rarely walk in the street. It feels safe to live in the city though you must take care of accidentally violate the local customs and laws or you may face very strict penalties.
