This is an older souk in downtown Jeddah, in stark contrast to the ultra modern enormous glass, steel and marble shopping malls that abound in the city. You can find almost anything you might need here, ranging from clothing for men, women, and children, to perfume, luggage, watches, shoes, soaps, incense, gold jewelry and prayer rugs. The shopkeepers aim to please and there are plenty of bargains to be had. I prefer going to the souks like this in the cooler months because many of the shops don’t have air conditioning and it can get pretty hot and smelly.
About This Blog, and About Me: Susie of Arabia
Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, is KSA's 2nd largest city and is located on its west coast, right on the Red Sea. I moved here in 2007 with my Saudi hubby and teenage son. This journal reflects the things that I see here, life through my eyes, my lens.
Please be sure to also visit my other blog, SUSIE'S BIG ADVENTURE, which relates my experiences, thoughts, and observations about living in Saudi Arabia.
