It’s a big one…

When you live in Jeddah, you’re never short on incredible things to do. Be it fun carnivals or themed nights at restaurants there is always something to do around the corner. Here at the best things to do in Jeddah this weekend.

Thursday April 18

Enjoy an indoor forest experience

Situated at Jeddah Park Mall, this indoor forest represents an extraordinary, tangible experience of walking through a verdant and lavish rainforest. Here, you can see a wide range of birds and amphibians. Without a doubt, the most cheerful experience is listening to these birds chirping and watching them fly from one branch to another, all through the pavilion. It’s also a great experience for visitors to have a comprehensive idea of what flora and fauna of the tropical rainforest would look like.

Tropical Land, Cenomi Jeddah Park, Aziziyah, Jeddah 233334, Sat to Thurs 10am to 11pm & Fri 3pm to 11pm. Book your tickets here. SAR70 per child & SAR80 per adult. @tropical.land.sa
