Day at the famous Jeddah AlBalad area

Last year I had a course training from work for a week in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia and it was a perfect opportunity to visit the famous Jeddah Historical Area also known as Jeddah AlBalad. I visited this area many times before including one which was part of my Street life in Saudi Arabia Project, you can view the published blogs here and also I published a story from the series Saudi Life Story. So yeah I have lots of memories from this area and here’s even more photos which I hope you like. Enjoy!

العام الماضي كانت لدي دورة تدريبية لمدة أسبوع في مدينة جدة غرب المملكة وكانت الفرصة ممتازة لزيارة جدة البلد التاريخية، قمت بزيارة هذه الجزء من المدينة أكثر من مرة وكان من ضمنها جولات جزء من مشروع حياة الشارع في السعودية وتستطيعون رؤية نتائج التدوينات من هنا، أيضاً قمت بنشر قصة من هنا تستطيعون زيارتها من ضمن سلسلة قصص الحياة في السعودية، لذا لدي الكثير من الذكريات هنا وأعرض لكم المزيد من الصور أتمنى أن تعجبكم!
