Jeddah, Saudi Arabia
Located on the coast of the Red Sea, Jeddah is the urban centre of western Saudi Arabia, the largest city in Makkah Province, the commercial capital of the country and its second largest city after Riyadh, the country's capital. Its location makes Jeddah not only a trading centre but also the principal gateway for Islamic pilgrams travelling to Mecca and Medina, Islam's holiest cities. Although both those cities are closed to non-Muslim visitors, Jeddah itself is more than worthy of a visit; it's a multicultural city of mystery, rich with tradition, a unique history and a colourful culture. Foreign influences are strongly reflected in Jeddah's wide range of restaurants, souks and shops. The city is considered the most cosmopolitan city in the staunchly Muslim and conservative Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and, with the possibility of women in bikinis on its beaches, even somewhat "wild" by Saudi standards.
Pink palaces, beautiful coral architecture, lively souks, sparkling sand beaches, fine restaurants, modern buildings and the old Al-Balad district - all these make Jeddah a magnificent destination for holiday travel.

Al-Balad is the historical centre and Jeddah's old town, tracing its roots back 2,500 years or more to when it was just a quaint fishing village. It offers a blend of modern cosmopolitan neighbourhoods and historic buildings.

Many of the traditional houses are made with coral from Red Sea reefs.
