Jeddah Gheer!!

27 03 2008

Yes, Jeddah is the most diversified city in the whole country. People are friendlier and women don’t have to cover their heads most of the times..

“Jeddah Gheer” means: Jeddah is different. The tourism officials generated this slogan to advertise a national campaign. The campaign was to encourage Saudis to discover their own country and invest their vacation money within the country. The reason behind that is because Saudi does not have a visitor’s Visa system so the country cannot have tourists visiting from outside the gulf region, unless they’re coming to Saudi for religious purposes or for business. Why? I don’t know! But all I know is they had to keep all those luxurious hotels and furnished apartment building’s “In Business” for the whole year around. By the way Jeddah gets really busy and crowded during the holy month Ramadan, the holiday Eid and holy month Hajj.

More about my city to come, live with this for now.
