    Assalamualaikum wr.wb.
    P’ Harbun…
    In next few days during school break and hajj days off, we plan to visit Jeddah City. Presently we are living in Jubail City, eastern province of KSA. It may take more than 1,500 km driving to be there. It’s even more than distance travelling from Cilegon Banten to Bali.
    Appreciate if you may give us recommendation places, attractions, activities that could be enjoyed during our visit.
    Indonesia restoran has been noted and derived from your blog as well that is Restoran Betawi.. please share if you have more indonesia restoran options, GPS coordinate will bear our hand to reach destination.
    We are family with three children plan to stay in city only in two nights as rest days have been allocated to visit Madinah and Makah.

    Let’s give them a try…. Buying the stuff and household is not in our initial plan actually.. however my appetite for exploring new places and that what makes travelling is fantastic.
    To my humble opinion.. travelling is the most precious investment I can make in our development especially to our kids. My kidos will learn to be flexible and adapt to new environments. Meeting new people will make our travel more much memorable too…
    Terima kasih P’ Harbun… Juga Abu Nova…

  3. Thank You
    Masjid Apung is my favourite place when waiting to boarding in King Abdul Aziz Airport
