When ever v go pass Jeddah balad is must see place over and over again , with modern multi story Mega shopping complexes coming up all over Arab , noting beats the Atmosphere of open market , the historical left over bits and pieces of architecture here and there which makes you feel the county has history , I really hope the remain area of Balad area stays same

Nice old buildings showing the old art and decorations over the windows where the women can watch the street without been seen.
