Jeddah City Maps

If you`re in need of maps of Jeddah, Saudi Arabic then just have a look further down this page.

Jeddah is a city in western Saudi Arabia, on the Red Sea coast. It is the second largest city in Saudi Arabia after Riyadh, with a population of 3.4 million. It is also the fourth largest city in the Arab world, after Cairo, Baghdad, and Riyadh. The greater Jeddah metro area has a total of 4.5 million residents.

Naturally, the climate in Jeddah is generally very hot. Even daily lows in the winter are generally over 20 degrees and the highs in the upper 20s. In summer, there is no escape from the heat with highs in the upper 30s and into the 40s, and lows in the upper 20s. It`s also very muggy because of its location on the Red Sea. In short: get ready to sweat!

Jeddah is located in Makkah Province (ie. Mecca), and those who join the Haaj pilgrimage often use Jeddah as their point of entrance into the country. For others, Jeddah is difficult to visit because tourist visas are not granted for Saudi Arabia. The ways to visit are to either work there for a while, or to be sponsored by a local for a personal visit.
