- As of Dec 2022, 1/3 of the old city is under restauration, another part is in very bad condition and the rest looks amazing.
Don't expect the whole block to look great. I found that the left part closer to Al Zahab road looks the best.
Shops and cafe open at 10am so if you go earlier, it's mostly you and some people walking around.
I didn't see many cafes or even restaurants. The right part has more local food though.Written December 27, 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- This is meant to be the tallest fountain in the world. It reminded me of the fountain in Lake Geneva and I was told that the Swiss government contributed to the construction of this one. It is impressive in the hight it reaches but the attraction is rather limited.Written January 22, 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- The F1 track being next door, a lot has changed and the surrounding of the mosque doesn't look empty at all. There's now a pier made of concrete just behind, a building behind and another one under construction. Hence the mosque doesn't look like that little cute mosque at sea. The building is still in a very good shape and the inside looks great but there will be buildings and maybe crane on your photo.
Also, the F1 track was undergoing some work and the track itself is barricaded, hence the taxi couldn't reach the mosque. I was dropped of at a random construction site gate about 800m from the mosque and had to wait until 3pm to be allowed to walk in the are.
To get a taxi back you'll have to walk quite a lot towards the city where there's more traffic.Written December 27, 2022
- The seaside is its beautiful peak during sunset.
I first visited Jeddah Corniche in 1979.
After 44 years …it’s refreshing & memorable to be back.

- جميييل و انصح بزيارة المكان والمتاحف الموجودة بالمنطقة رائعه تعبر لك عن تاريخ المكان
I recommend to visit this place it’s wonderfulWritten January 30, 2022
- This is an absolute must see when coming to Jeddah. This is an amazing humongous museum, with great explanations on the Saudi and regional cultures. The place is enormous, and the construction of the museum itself is very beautiful. You really need more than a day to be able to fully comprehend and assimilate all the information provided. The day that we visited, there were several local school children who came to learn about their culture. This is an absolute must visit, when in the area, and you will not be disappointed.Written December 2, 2022

- Situated 27 km from the Grand Mosque Haram Sharif, it’s a landmark on the Jeddah–Makkah Highway. Also known as Quran Gate, it is an arch gateway monument symbolizing as the entrance to Makkah. It was built in 1979 consisting of the main part of the structure of the Holy Qur'an, sitting on a rehal (book stand). This gate signifies the boundary of the haram area of the city of Makkah, where non-Muslims are prohibited to enter. The majestic-looking Makkah Gate is decorated with various patterns and can get illuminated at night in many ways. The magnificent structure covers eight lanes of traffic, including a center highway divider. The sides of the stand have beautiful blue and green glass windows attached to the walls. Under the Makkah Gate structure, the Saudi government has planted palm trees between the four-lane incoming and outgoing roads to Makkah and Jeddah. An important clarification: Many visitors mix up this landmark with Bab-e-Makkah (Makkah Gate) built in the Fatimade era in the 14th century.Written January 3, 2023
- Silver Sands is one of the best beaches in town. However, it's a private beach so not everyone can access the beach.Written February 12, 2020
- Nothing special here about the building , but a good place to come if you want to pray On Friday in a big clean Mosque, or to attend a lecture, it will be crowded and difficult to park your car.Written June 19, 2020
