Jeddah Holidays

Celebrating 25 Years of tour excellence
Close
Long the meeting point of traders coming to Saudi Arabia’s biggest port and pilgrims en route to Mecca, perhaps it isn’t surprising that Jeddah has such a liberal and cosmopolitan attitude. A sunny city on the Red Sea it is a place that effortlessly blends old, new and plenty of money, with endless sculptures, parks, restaurants, and amusement parks springing up along the 30-kilometre seafront Corniche to keep the ever-growing population entertained.

While much of the city is a fun-loving modern metropolis by the sea, as the ‘Gateway to Mecca’, Jeddah came to prominence in the 600s when Muslim travellers began arriving to undertake a pilgrimage. Today, over 2 million pilgrims pass through Jeddah annually. Among the winding lanes lined with coral stone buildings and carved teak balconies and colourful souks of al-Bahad, the old town, you can recapture some of the timeless ambiance that has existed here for hundreds of years. This area of rich heritage is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and its easy to see how these ancient walkways have long inspired visitors, artists and writers alike.
