A Walk through Al Balad, Old Jeddah, Saudi Arabia

A Walk through Al Balad, Old Jeddah, Saudi Arabia | Historic Jeddah

27th Jul 2015

Jan Van Bekkum made a trip from the Netherlands over land to South Africa and made some splendid videos of Jeddah. 

This video explores the Old City (Al Balad) of Jeddah. This is the site of the original city of Jeddah, its souks and merchant houses. Built originally by fisherman over 2500 years ago and sadly neglected by successive Saudi Governments, many parts of the city have decayed. However some parts have been lovingly restored and can be visited.

Enjoy this walk through Al Balad .....
