The best shopping in Jeddah
There are a number of great malls and shopping opportunities in Jeddah and you won’t have to go far from the hotel to find some of the best. Head to Al Andalus and Al Salam Malls and then check out other centers in the area,
Al Andalus and Al Salam Malls
Right around the corner from the hotel, you can find some of the best shopping in the city. Right in the heart of King Abdul Aziz Square is Al Andalus Shopping Mall where you can pick up anything from designer goods to knick-knacks. This center has over 11 million visitors each year. Check out your favorite international stores such as Swatch, The Body Shop, Sephora, Samsonite, H&M and more, as well as local brands. Here you can also find your go-to fast food options if short on time, such as Starbucks® and Cinnabon®.
If you would like to explore more stores, just steps away you will find another huge mall. Fill your bags with presents at Al Salam Mall, a stylish center with more than 200 stores. Cosmetics, perfumes, fashion and electronics stores are spread out in one of the biggest malls in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
Want even more stores to swipe your card at? A little further north, you can find the Serafi Mega Mall and IKEA. This mega structure has hundreds of stores, as well as restaurants and a family Funland with its own ice rink and rollercoaster. If there isn’t an IKEA near you at home, then this is also a great opportunity to pick up some quality home décor goods too.
Souks and a touch of history
In addition to great malls right on your doorstep, there are plenty of souks to discover around the city. If you would like to experience a piece of history, then head to Bab Makkah. This is one of the only remaining ancient sites in Jeddah and once stood as a gate to the wall that surrounded the city for centuries. The name translates to Mecca Gate as it faces the direction of Mecca. The structure has a bustling souk behind it that is best visited in the evening.
