3. Get In On The Action At The Fan Zone

You better get to the races fast not only for the seats but ‘cos later in the night those fan zones get super crowded. There’s that iconic Ferris Wheel to ride and a host of other amazing activities to try here.

4. Explore The City’s Rich History

Al-balad in the southern part of Jeddah is a UNESCO World Heritage Site – that alone should be reason enough for you to explore the place while you’re in the city. Entry is free, plus the place has cool cafes to chill at and a laidback vibe that probably is just like it was a century ago.

5. Head To The Islamic Arts Biennale For An Unmatched Experience

The Islamic Arts Biennale in Jeddah is not your typical art exhibit. It’s an explosion of color, patterns, and geometry that will transport you to a world of beauty and spirituality. The biennale showcases works of art from all over the Islamic world, including calligraphy, ceramics, textiles, and metalwork. If you’re looking for a cultural experience that will leave you in awe, this is it. Just an FYI, it’s so huge that you’ll be walking for hours and still not be able to see everything that’s housed here.

6. Go Diving In The Red Sea

If there’s just one activity that you’ve got time for while you’re in Jeddah then it’s got to be diving. The Bride of the Red Sea as Jeddah is fondly called by its residents is home to some super fab diving spots that are rich with marine life.
