Things to do

Two excellent restaurants worth trying. 

Restaurant Yildizlar - excellent Lebanese cuisine, within walking distance of the InterContinental Hotel.   Phn: 653-1150

Restaurant Alalawi - excellent Morrocan cuisine with fantastic ambience.  Really worth a try in the centre of the old district of Jeddah.  Phone: 648-5450, 644-7423.  Only Rs15 in a taxi (USD 5.00) if taken outside the hotel.

Intercontinental Hotel
The hotel has an excellent sports centre including airconditioned squash courts, billiards, table tennis and a very snazzy pool - both for laps and meandering around the sunken bar.  Men only I'm afraid for the sports facilities.

The Beach.
The Intercontinental runs an FOC mini bus service at 1030 each morning, returning at 1700.  Cafe's are available plus scuba diving (watch the time between dive and fly) and jet skis.  The beaches are private and closed off to the public.
