Jeddah is home to a wide range of restaurants, which serve up a delightful blend of Saudi and international cuisine, as well as hotels and resorts that offer some of the largest suites in the region. The city’s privileged location affords residents and visitors access to miles of golden sandy beaches and some of the world’s most spectacular coral reefs, renowned as one of the best diving sites of the Red Sea. The city’s long Corniche offers yet another pleasurable way to enjoy the seaside and is home to an open-air art gallery and King Fahd’s Fountain, the highest fountain in the world.
Whilst staying in Jeddah, pilgrims – or hajjis – can also take advantage of myriad opportunities for family entertainment at the city’s numerous shopping centres, recreational parks and leisure villages.
Moreover, having built up such a strong tourism industry, Jeddah has become an attractive, bustling business centre. Throughout the year a variety of national and international commercial and cultural events are hosted at the Jeddah Centre for Forums & Events, a state-of-the-art facility that comprises a modern conference hall, a well-furnished business centre, various cafeterias and a mosque.
Such a supportive and stimulating environment makes Jeddah an ideal destination for investment in tourism facilities and support services.
