Jeddah

The historic crossroads of pilgrims and traders, and the traditional gateway to Mecca, Jeddah is the most fascinating of Saudi Arabia's major cities, with a cosmopolitan and liberal air not present anywhere else in the Kingdom. Visitors will love the city's World Heritage Red Sea architecture, its bustling souq, the laid-back coastline that's home to fantastic dive sites, and its diverse, world-class cuisine.

The commercial capital of Saudi Arabia, modern Jeddah is more than a thousand times the size of the ancient city where it is believed the mother of humanity, 'Eve', was laid to rest. These days Jeddah is fast-paced and a bit rough around the edges, with high-rises and a waterfront culture that are symbols of the Kingdom's modernisation. This blend of old and new is what makes the 'bride of the Red Sea' such an appealing destination, and often the first Saudi city foreigners like to visit.

HIGHLIGHTS :

- visit Al-Balad area (the old town)

- exploring the old Hejazi homes all around Jeddah 

- Dive or snorkel to see the world famous red sea corals on a boat trip

- visit the King Abdullah Economic City to see the modern side of Saudi

After such a historical experience, we will be visiting Darwich House. It is another house that is especially unique because the entire exterior is surrounded by miniature structures of the different architecture buildings in Saudi. 

We are stopping for lunch at Alnakheel, which is one of the most famous Saudi cuisine restaurant in Jeddah. Moving on to Angawi house ( Mekkiyah ) which is built and designed in traditional Hejaz style, Al Makkiyah has more in common with the dilapidated coral houses of Jeddah’s old town than the affluent whitewashed suburbs. Angawi’s family home was designed and built around his al mizan philosophy, and uses a mixture of modern and traditional materials and techniques.
Its unusual form is immediately notable. The house is wider in the north than the south to catch the northerly wind in every room. The wind is drawn in through the roshan, wooden window boxes, which also act as screens to provide privacy.

Situated on the west coast of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, KAEC covers an area of 181 million square meters of land, approximately the size of Washington DC. The city is under development by Emaar, The Economic City (EEC), a publicly listed Saudi joint-stock company. EEC was established in 2006 by a consortium of global real estate players, including Emaar PJSC, a number of high-profile Saudi investors, and government bodies to develop King Abdullah Economic City (KAEC). The vision for KAEC is to develop a world-class, integrated lifestyle city that adds to the socio-economic prosperity and sustainability of Saudi Arabia.

When completed KAEC is estimated to be home to approximately 2 million residents, and aid the Saudi Arabian economy in creating employment and expanding beyond oil into the shipping, light industries, tourism, retail and commercial sectors.

if you wish to extend your stay after finishing this tour to go on a camping experience in an unforgettable place , we can arrange a camping trip to Al Wahbah crater is located in middle of an otherwise flat, barren desert, the Al Wahbah Crater is a natural anomaly that would be wondrous enough on its own, but it hides its own salt field in its bowl.The giant crater was long thought to have been created by an ancient meteor strike, but has been found to have appeared thanks to volcanic activity. It is thought that the crater appeared after a massive underground steam explosion that was caused when a magma flow ran into a subterranean source of water. The resulting eruption would have launched a colossal amount of earth into the air, leaving behind the crater that exists today. At 1.2 miles across and over 800 feet deep, it is an impressive pock mark on the planet.
