Shopping malls and Souks in Jeddah
When visiting the country where shopping is a tradition, one must know where to go to find the best deals. The Saudi Shopping malls are well known for their huge size and luxurious products, but they are not the only places to shop. Here are some of our suggestions for the city of Jeddah, the shopping heart of Saudi Arabia.
Like most other big Saudi cities, Jeddah is divided into two complete different parts. You have the old part of the city with the traditional souks and Saudi shops, and the modern part where most of the shopping malls of Jeddah are located. The most diverse place to go shopping though, is Tahlia Street.
Tahlia Street is the fashion center of Saudi Arabia. You will find all the famous brands like Giorgio Armani, Versace, Chanel, Ralph Lauren, and Gucci, as well as some of the more traditional clothing shops. This makes shopping in Tahlia Street a very diverse experience.
There is a lot of excitement and entertainment during the Jeddah shopping festival. Some of the shopping centers offer full-scale amusement parks within their facilities. The stores and shops do everything to attract as many shoppers as possible. It is common to see fire-eaters and spectacular water shows.
It doesn’t matter if you are a local, tourist or a pilgrim, Tahlia street is perfect for everybody, and a must see location when visiting Jeddah. Stay at our luxury Al Murjan Beach Resort in Jeddah to get a taste of Saudi shopping.
