At first glance, you might think you are looking at an amusement park. You are correct. However this amusement park is actually located right inside one of the many malls in Jeddah – and entertainment areas such as this are standard fare for most malls here. This is just a small part of the large area. Since there is not much for women to do in Arabia except shop, and there is not that much for kids to do either, shopping malls have discovered that mixing an amusement area for kids with the shopping experience for women is a match made in heaven. Many Saudi women employ maids or nannies, so oftentimes you will see the women leisurely shopping while the nannies are in the entertainment area watching the kids. This photo was taken in the brand new Mall of Arabia, an expansive and gorgeous mall which is still partially not finished yet.
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.
