Jeddah at night is always hopping. Because of the severe daytime heat and businesses closing a good part of the day for prayers, a lot of business is conducted at night, with shops and malls often open until well past midnight. So traffic in the evening is usually much busier than at various times during the day. This is also the time when you see more women out and about as well, with their husbands of course and often with the kids in tow. Wearing black abayas plus head and neck coverings out in the heat of the day is abolutely brutal. This photo was taken at about 11pm.
