A time-honoured crossroad of modern life and ancient traditions

Gracing the picturesque southern coast of the Red Sea, the ancient trading port of Jeddah is the cosmopolitan commercial capital of Saudi Arabia.

Often referred to as the gateway to Mecca, one of the most important holy cities for the Muslim community, the country’s second largest city delights with a refined blend of breath-taking coastal splendour and ancient Arabian architecture. With its beautiful coral architecture and wealth of historic buildings that cast their welcoming shade over the lively souqs, the historic Al Balad district is a nostalgic testament to the city’s vibrant past, making it the absolute highlight of every trip to Jeddah.
