Al Balad is a fantastic place where you can see modernity coexisting with history. You can go shopping for perfumes, Saudi clothes, jewellery, mobile phones, bakhour (frankincense), and a lot of other things in the same place.

Great collection of products from all over the world. Gold jewellery, Perfume items, Textiles, Branded clothes, Foor wear shops, Sweet shops, a variety of dates, Chinese toys ... ...& cultural cloths.

Better park the car inside the paid parking area or take the electronic parking ticket and place on the dashboard.

Balad is the famous business area in Jeddah where we can find many items at wholesale prices, it has many markets like perfumes market, watches market, ready made garments market, clothes and suiting market, honey market, etc.
So if you wanna go to Jeddah it will be very worthy if you go to balad Jeddah.

There are lots of hidden jewels in the Balad area. The easter side of Gabel Street has lots of historical sites that are now being renovated and accessible due to the wonderful renovation of the streets and buildings in the neighborhood.
