Al Balad is the most fascinating sector of Jeddah. It’s the oldest historic part of the city. Established in the 7th century, Jeddah’s location on the Red Sea and its close proximity to Mecca and Medina ensured its importance as a major trade port as well as the gateway to Islam’s holiest cities. Several years ago Jeddah was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site, securing its preservation and protection for future generations to enjoy.
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. 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 OF ARABIA (formerly SUSIE'S BIG ADVENTURE), which relates my experiences, thoughts, and observations about living in Saudi Arabia.
