Flights to Jeddah, the first step of the Hajj and Umrah.
A city whose founding fades into historical memory, located strategically between the Red Sea and the Hijaz Mountains, and for your flight to Mecca to perform Umrah via Haramain high-speed railway. The constant influx of pilgrims makes Jeddah a thoroughly cosmopolitan city yet whose story goes back a millennia. If you are going to stay a few days, make sure you check out some of the city’s sights, such as Jeddah waterfront JW, Jeddah fountain and fish market.. Al-Balad is Jeddah’s old town, with remnants of traditional homes and buildings, threaded amongst structures that are more modern and alive with people and business. You can also visit Naseef House, a renovated example of traditional Jeddah corral architecture; note the wide ramp-like stairs that wind up the building, making it possible to access astride your animal of choice, donkey, camel, or horse. For a bit of everyday life in Jeddah, we recommend a stop at the market, Souq Al Alawi, and dust off your bargaining skills and try your hand at getting the best buy at this sprawling market. During Hajj or Umrah, you will be only one of many international visitors impressed by the variety of wares. Are you wondering where that corral on the buildings came from? Dive into one of the saltiest seas on Earth and take a glimpse.

For hundreds of years, Jeddah has been welcoming visitors that travel from beyond its walls or commercial or religious errands. Jeddah is well equipped with upscale shopping establishments that cater to the most demanding tastes, locally and from abroad. When you are too tired to keep shopping, Jeddah offers some of the finest and freshest seafood in the region. Also known for its wide variety of international fare, a sign of the pilgrims passing through and its international workforce. Check out the great Turkish and Southern Asian cuisine, not to mention local Middle Eastern specialties like Saleeg, the region’s national dish of white rice spiced and cooked in milk with chicken. Its hotels also cater to business travel and an array of international companies, from East and West, have offices in Jeddah. After your flight to Jeddah, when they travel on the highway to Mecca, the imposing Mecca Gateway will greet pilgrims, more than 100 feet at its loftiest point, stretching over the road to mark the entrance to the haram area of the city (a non-Muslims restricted area). Be sure to catch a game at King Abdullah Sports City the Jewel, the second biggest stadium in Saudi Arabia.
