Jeddah, called the Bride of the Red Sea, is the second largest city in Saudi Arabia and the largest in the Makkah Province.
Jeddah is said to have become the arrival spot for pilgrims during the caliphate of Uthman ibn Affan and is now the main link to the Holy Cities of Makkah and Madinah, and a bustling hub for business meetings and associations, making it the first-choice destination for pilgrims and business-men alike.
The city is now a major commercial center and popular for its numerous shopping districts, sophisticated restaurants and the beautiful Corniche seaside. Crammed with boofias and shopping malls in nearly every street-corner, fast paced cars and whizzing motor-bikes, Jeddah is known as the most easy-going city in the country.
Glittering and glistening with sights to see and things to do, Jeddah is always awake, always excited, and never tedious or dull.
