Saudi Arabia has more fancy ultra-modern malls than you could ever imagine. Perhaps the reason for this is because there is not much else for families to do together than go shopping. Consequently the malls are abundant and magnificent. This is the Mall of Arabia, and the lighting all over the mall changes from blue to purple to red to green to yellow. The enormous underground parking garage is also color coded with various entrances drenched in bright colored lighting, from green to blue to yellow and so on. The architectural structure of this mall is amazing and the theme seems to be that of a cruise ship. Many malls have an in-house amusement park where children can ride rides, play games, win prizes, and have lots of fun. Most malls also have food courts and designated separate prayer areas for men and women. All businesses/shops are required to close during the five daily prayer times, so many mall businesses are closed all afternoon instead of closing and opening back up several times.
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.
