King's fountain was located inside King's Palace area so you could see it only from far away but nevertheless it was impressive at how high the water went. The area where we stopped was a nice walking zone along the sea and the view of King's Fountain at nigh was really nice.

It's a nice place to go and walk along the Corniche. It's best to walk at sunset. As the water goes up into the air, it turns into mist at the top. It's very lovely. There are plenty of restaurants to eat at when you get hungry after strolling along.

300 mtrs tall! Very impressive and a good view of the Red Sea from the Corniche opposite the fountain. Good to walk in this area too.

The King's fountain is a must see if you are in Jeddah. It is a must see at night as it is well lit with a laser show from time to time.

after the reconstruction of the corniche area the scenery there is amazing especially during good weather days, I think with the open of the new hotel this is going to be a very interesting view
