The tallest fountain in the world as it can be visited from a nice coast park where you can walk along and enjoy an ice cream as well. Furthermore, the area nearby is full of restaurants and cafes which can be a nice addition to your visit at the fountain.

In the past when people visit our nice city Jeddah they used to go and take a pic of this nice tall fountain in the sea. I say this was in the past but now it's just an old fountain in the old part of Jeddah. We must update our great city. For first timers go there and take pics... More
