What can I expect to find if I stay in Jeddah?
Like many cities, there is a clear divide between the old and new. Old Jeddah is filled with cobbled streets lined with coral architecture and quaint coffee shops and souks. North Jeddah, however, has made an attempt to modernise, housing new department stores, malls and upmarket restaurants. Given its location on The Red Sea, Jeddah is renowned for its cuisine consisting primarily of fresh fish and seafood.
Why should I choose Jeddah for my next business trip?
Within easy reach of key Saudi cities such as Medina and Mecca, Jeddah is also home to an international airport, connecting the city to a wide variety of destinations including other cities in Saudi Arabia such as Damman and Riyadh; as well as to worldwide destinations including Dubai, Cairo and London to name just a few. In addition, Jeddah is home to the Jeddah Conference Palace, a venue suitable for all your business needs, no matter how big or small.
