Mandatory view in Jeddah

One of the best views in Jeddah is the sunset from Palestine St watching the fountain and go for a walk along the Corniche.

Paris has the Eiffel Tower, London Big Ben, New York the Statue of Liberty and Jeddah has a water spout. Looks better when the sun goes down as the spotlights pick it out but it's pretty average.

This is an awesome sight. You need to watch it like clouds in Europe as they twist and turn and unfurl. So it is with this fountain which is both an impressive engineering feat and real life slow motion tableau, ever changing as the wind picks the top. Don't miss.

Basically I went to Corniche to have a walk and also to see the fountain. It is very nice during the day and night. You can see the fountain from InterContinental or Hyatt Park hotel but you can just go to Corniche intersection of Falastin avenue and you will have a very good view.
