Personally, i believe the sight is better than before but for me it doesnt desrve to have a trip to see it. Yes its nice but i believe it is difficult to find a place there because usually people take the proime locations unless you go there ealry ( before 6 pm in summer and before 11 am in winter)

The largest in the world, amazing view at day and night. Better to visit before sunset so will not miss the fabulous view at the sunset behind the fountain. Because in summer time it very hot and humid to better to visit Jeddah and see the fountain during winter months like December till February.

If you stay in a hotel nearby then OK, but I wouldn't travel far to see this attraction at night. It is the world's tallest fountain and the locals or middle east visitors tend to like it a lot.
