Jeddah is a city and a major port in the central Hejaz region in western Saudi Arabia. It is located along the Red Sea, west of Mecca. Historically, it was the port of Mecca and hence was the site where Muslim pilgrims landed in their journey to Mecca and Medina. Over the years, no other city has been as welcoming of outsiders as Jeddah. The unofficial motto here is - "Jeddah ghair" or "Jeddah’s different". In modern times, Jeddah has evolved to be a cosmopolitan hub. It is home to swanky hotels and the venue for big festivals like the Red Sea International Film Festival. History lovers will appreciate Al Balad which is the city’s heart. According to local lore, it is the city where Eve was laid to rest. So, it is right to say that this city is a mix of old and now, and it remains gloriously different. Pickyourtrail offers great value for money packages to Jeddah. It has an exhaustive list of options to choose from so that you can choose a package of your liking.
With a seamless blend of the old and the new, it is right to say that Jeddah is one of the most beautiful places in all of Saudi Arabia. This cosmopolitan hub is also the second-largest city in the region. One can find many attractions here ranging from colourful markets to marvellous beaches. This is only the tip of the iceberg as tourists visiting Jeddah can also enjoy - soul string religious sites, historical landmarks and so much more. With more attractions than one can keep track of Jeddah is a fantastic place to visit in Saudi Arabia. Here are some of the best places that you can visit at Jeddah:-
Located in the southeast of the Tabuk province, Mahajah is a rocky desert. The sandstone here has been exposed to the elements long enough to cause erosion and it has resulted in creating other-worldly landscapes. The remoteness of this place is due to rough terrain that hinders access to tourists. As a result of that, it continues to remain one of the attractions that are least touched by humanity. Saudi Arabia is full of undiscovered places, with many such places sporting natural arches. Mahajah is exactly one such place. Near Jebel ‘Uwayqir, the erosion has formed sandstone sculptures into three arches. The tallest among these reaches a height of 40 metres. It may appear as being not as big from a distance, but the structure is truly breathtaking when viewed up close. What’s striking is the symmetry that exists between the three rock structures. These amazing rock structures should definitely be added to your Jeddah travel package.
The Nefud Al-Kebir is located in the Northern part of the Arabian Peninsula. It is essentially a large sand dune desert. Its name means "The Grand Sand Dune Desert" in Arabic. It is also known as the desert of Al-Nefud. It stretches over 290 Kilometers from the city of Tayma on the west to Hail in the east. Visitors will appreciate the vegetation here ( in spite of being in a desert ). Although these bushes make the progress on vehicles a little slow. The second interesting feature here are significantly hilly yet scalable dunes. Dunes can reach heights up to 50 meters here. One will also be left amazed by the various shades of the sand where they can vary from Red to White. The dunes here make this stop a mandatory addition to your Jeddah package.
Chances are that you would have heard of the Gulf of Aqabah if you are planning a trip to Jeddah, and that is for good reason. The Gulf of Aqabah stretches 170 Kilometers from Ras Al-Sheikh Hameed to the city of Aqabah in the south. Its azure waters host colourful and eye-catching marine life, corals, and much more. The white sandy beaches here lie in stark contrast to the imposing mountains. There are plenty of natural wonders to see around this region, but we would like to focus specifically on a man-made one. Located about 50 Kilometres south of the city of Haql, lies a shipwreck. This wreck, the "Georgios G" is also known as the Saudi Titanic or simply - "Safinat Haql". It stands for the "boat of Haql" in Arabic. For four decades now, the silhouette of this beached vessel has imposed itself as an eye-catching featuring of the scenery here. This makes it a worthwhile addition to your Jeddah holiday package. Locals frequent this spot to enjoy the views of the wreck and even for the snorkelling experience.
Given that the Tabuk province has the richest history of any place located in the Arabian Peninsula, the only fitting way to honour this heritage is through a museum. This is precisely the intent behind the Tabuk Museum. The old Kijaz Railway Station was repurposed in 2019 to help the tourists appreciate the history of the region. Visitors can admire the fantastic exhibits on their visit here. The architecture here also aids in the storytelling process as it features both early twentieth and twenty-first century touches. It takes the visitors on a journey from prehistoric to modern times and even to the future. The great exhibits here make this a great stop to add to your Jeddah tour package from India.
The natural wonder of Tayeb Ism is located on the Gulf of Aqaba, about 15 Kilometres from northwards from Maqna. What most visitors will find most striking is how imposing the 600-meter tall granite massif appears to be. The sharp edges of this structure fall into the Gulf of Aqaba. The visitors here are greeted by even more stunning views on their approach to the palm grove at the bottom of the hills. The mountainside that is in the direction of the Gulf of Aqaba suddenly reveals the stunning high edge of a canyon which is rather narrow. One can enter this canyon at a distance that is only a few dozen meters from the sea. Visitors here will get the impression that the granite massif here has been torn into by supernatural forces. The beauty to be found here makes it a great addition to your Jeddah tour package.
