Thursday, March 2

Get creative at Lego’s everchanging playbox

Don’t miss the chance to play with Lego at the Everchanging Playbox pop-up inside Jeddah Park mall. From building a giant lego KSA flag to a guided lego station, families can learn all about the timeline of Lego and check out a mini lego version of Salwa Palace.

Get rainbow messy at The Colorfly

If you are feeling creative or perhaps celebrating a family occasion this weekend, The Colorfly offers freestyle painting sessions for couples and families.

Indulge in delicious Thai food on the beach

Thai Gallery Jeddah

Located on Oía Beach in Jeddah, this Thai restaurant is a perfect spot for a picturesque and indulgent dinner. The restaurant originally started in Marbella and became popular for its stylish interiors, buzzing atmosphere, and exquisite Thai food. What to try? You can’t go wrong with their classic pad thai and prawn satay paired with a passion fruit mojito. For something sweet try the fried banana with honey.
