Looool good point!! I cant see why there should be segregation on restaurants in the first place.. The policy of preclusion (ردع المعصية قبل حصولها) wont work anymore in todays world. This sucks.

I am not trying to be funny, or disrespectful: Are there stores for the traditional 'moomoo' (sorry that's what we call it in the southern USA) because I see a womens clothing store with bright colors and dresses in the above pictures, but no "Burqas-R-US" kind of stores. Or do you just shop at Bed Bath and beyond for your sheets?

women only cover when they go out in public (when they leave the house), but in side family houses, friends houses ,, inside parties..... they wear what ever they want, and when they take pictures then keep it between them and don't share it with the world, which is why Westerners think that they are always covered... they only wear it 10% of their time, our way of life is different.

we have the best brands in our malls for both male and females.. not very different to Dubai

Wow Starbucks,Kentucky Fried Chicken,McDonalds in Abraij al Bait and infront of the kaaba

They also can open a Hard Rock Cafe infront of the mosque and a cinema for hollywood movies and a massage salon for relaxing.It must be the ultimate holiday and tourism cashes $$ must flow into the Saud Monarchy.

All profets earned from Abraj Al Baitn goes to the maintenance of the 2 Holy mosques it never goes to the government's treasury. the name of the project is "Abraj al bait ENDOWMENT" after all.

and nothing wrong with restaurants, Makkah is a city. and just because there are restaurants it doesn't make it "hollywood".

You are absolutely correct. Nothing wrong with restaurants, but there is also nothing wrong with comparing the photos inside the hotel shopping area to a mall in America. Besides, it looks more like City Center in Vegas!

Shouldn't there be less American brands? It looks like almost every store and restaurant is USA based. How about some European (Wiener Wald, Arther Treachers Fish and Chips, Antonios Pizza) and Chinese (?) AND MOST IMPORTANT your own local Arabian Peninsula brands, with local style and culture?
