Market area in Old Jeddah
Nov 2019
This is part of the Old Jeddah area and contains a number of shops and stalls selling various kinds of products. IF you've seen markets anywhere else in the world then you might not find this particularly inspiring. But if you're already in the Old Jeddah area then there's no harm to also check out this part.

Historical Gems of Jeddah
Oct 2019 • Family
Gabel Street Souq is marked as Qabel Trail on Google Maps. The souq starts at the Al Amoudi Exchange building and from then on you'll go through a long passage lined with old style shops. There are alleys dotting the passage.

If you go deeper you'll find historical gems like Nassief House and Al Matbouli House. Al Matbouli House was built in 1022H meaning that it is 418 years old! Al Shafie Mosque was reputedly built 1,000 years ago!!

Refresh yourself with freshly pressed sugar cane drinks. There were 2 that I found - one just across Al Dhahab Street and another in front of Al Matbouli House.

In terms of shopping to be honest there isn't much to buy unless you are into traditional perfumery and attires on top of low quality imported goods. However the atmosphere is excellent, especially during Ramadan evenings.

Nice market
May 2018 • Family
This is a nice market near the older part of town. Nothing I would like to buy really but worth a look for the old buildings and atmosphere. Good shwarma also.
