Jidda - Saudi Arabia

The second largest city of Saudi and the entrants door to Makkah and
Medina. About half an hour driving to The Holy city of Makkah. And as a
fact you can see mountains of Makkah while being in Jeddah.

All pictures been gathered from different locations on the Internet.

thanks guys,

The skyline should improve with some new towers getting built.

As well as mthe many medium height office towers getting built (or already built) around Ruwais district there are 3-4 skyscrapers on their way up as well.

There's a 240m building on Medina road already under construction, and one on Andalus street which I've heard is 400m high.

Cheers and have a good weekend

Ahmad

Impressive pictures! Jeddah has many nice buildings and state-of-the-art infustructure. It may go second to other modern cities in terms of skyline but mainly because most of the tall buildings are scattered in the city and not gathered together creating clusters. For a 2mln city though the skyline is quite good.
I give an 8/10 but in my heart Jeddah gets a 10/10 cause in this city I spent most of my childhood years

HiJazzey thanks once more for the pics, we met @xtratime

I am glad you liked the city. Yes Jeddah is very hot and humid in the summer.
At the end of the fall and winter you it is cooler and windy.

Old Jeddah gets a 10. Just gorgeous. The more recent architecture, well, it varies a lot in quality ...

Balikbayan,

I've got a roadsign that says:
"The site where these pictures are hosted, has migrated to a new server. The owner of the site (HiJazzey) has changed the setup by removing the personal subdomain. Hence the links here are broken."

Thank you for not sniping and mud slinging

Mecca has always been the only place where its all-Muslim...i cant remember if Medina is as well. Other than that, TRUE islam is very tolerant of other religions.
