Jeddah's souq immediately south of Al Amir Fahd St and Al Balad is well worth seeking out. It's subdivided into sections, some populated by different immigrant groups, such as Yemenis selling Yemeni coffee and jambiyas (ceremonial daggers). If you're here immediately before, during or after the hajj, don't miss it.
