Over the years, Jeddah has welcomed the outside influencers such as traders, international artists and Makkahbound pilgrims with open arms remaining true to its unofficial motto – “Jeddah Ghair,” which simply means “Jeddah is different.” These visitors have left a lasting mark on the city turning it in to Saudi Arabia’s buzzing cosmopolitan hub, home to gleaming hotels and big-ticket events like the Red Sea International Film Festival.
However, Jeddah has remained rooted to its traditions. The city’s heart is still intact in Al Balad, the magical historical quarter that has undergone a renaissance in recent years. And the Red Sea is still central to it all — for trade, for diving among pristine reefs, and for fishing for Jeddah’s legendary seafood. The city where Eve was laid to rest (according to local lore) is a charming mix of old and new, and one that remains gloriously different. Jeddah Ghair indeed!
