Fuente del Rey Fahad - Jeddah

4.7Reseñas

Descripción

Ubicada en la costa oeste del reino de Arabia Saudita, en Jeddah, la fuente del rey Fahad se llama así porque fue donada a la ciudad de Jeddah por el rey Fahad. Construida entre 1980 y 1983 y abierta al público en 1985, la Fuente del Rey Fahad es la más alta de su tipo en el mundo, con una altura máxima de agua de 853 pies, más alta que la Torre Eiffel (sin la antena).

Diseño

Visible desde toda la ciudad de Jeddah, la Fuente del Rey Fahad puede expulsar un total de 16 toneladas de agua en el aire todos los días a una velocidad de 375 km/h. La fuente se ve mejor después del anochecer cuando está iluminada por más de 500 luces integradas en el diseño de la fuente. El agua cambia de color a medida que se eleva hacia el cielo contra el cielo nocturno y crea una vista fascinante que uno tiene que ver para creer.

Mejor tiempo para visitar

Si puede llegar justo antes de la puesta del sol, puede encontrar fácilmente un buen punto de vista porque la mayoría de los turistas llegan después de la puesta del sol. Además, podrá disfrutar de la vista del sol poniente, brillando sobre el mar mientras las pequeñas gotas de agua de la fuente acarician su piel y crean un efecto relajante y calmante.

Después, puede tomar un desvío cruzando la calle hacia la calle del Hotel Ritz Carlton, donde los puestos de comida, las cafeterías y los restaurantes sirven algunos de los mejores cafés, sándwiches y pasteles de la ciudad.

A must visit place in Jeddah. King Fahd's Fountain, also known as the Jeddah Fountain, is in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. It is the tallest fountain of its type in the world. It is named after King Fahd bin Abdulaziz, the ruler of Saudi Arabia from 1982 until 2005.

A Mesmerizing Experience at Jeddah Corniche: In the Presence of the Majestic Jeddah Fountain Review: During my recent visit to Jeddah, I had the pleasure of exploring the beautiful Jeddah Corniche, an iconic waterfront promenade that stretches along the Red Sea. One of the highlights of my visit was witnessing the grandeur of the Jeddah Fountain, a magnificent display of water and light that left me in awe. As I approached the corniche, I was immediately captivated by its vibrant atmosphere. The well-maintained walkways, lush greenery, and stunning views of the Red Sea created a serene ambiance that provided a much-needed escape from the bustling city life. The Jeddah Fountain, also known as King Fahd Fountain, stands tall and proud in front of the corniche. It is one of the tallest fountains in the world, reaching an impressive height of 312 meters. The moment I laid eyes on it, I couldn't help but be mesmerized by its sheer beauty and elegance. The fountain's synchronized water jets dance gracefully to various musical tunes, creating a spectacle that is truly breathtaking. As night fell, colorful lights illuminated the water jets, transforming them into a mesmerizing display of vibrant hues. It was a sight to behold and left me feeling enchanted. The corniche itself offers numerous recreational activities for visitors to enjoy. From leisurely strolls along the promenade to cycling or jogging on dedicated paths, there is something for everyone. Families can be seen picnicking on well-manicured lawns while children play in designated play areas. One aspect that impressed me during my visit was how clean and well-maintained everything was. The authorities have done an excellent job in ensuring that visitors have a pleasant experience by providing ample seating areas and clean public facilities. Moreover, there are several food stalls and restaurants along the corniche offering a variety of cuisines to cater to different tastes. Whether you're craving traditional Saudi Arabian dishes or international delicacies, you'll find plenty of options to satisfy your appetite. However, despite all its positive aspects, one drawback I noticed during my visit was occasional overcrowding during peak hours. This made it slightly challenging to find parking spaces or secure a spot near popular attractions such as the fountain. Nonetheless, with patience and proper planning, this can be easily overcome. In conclusion, my visit to Jeddah Corniche in front of Jeddah Fountain was an unforgettable experience filled with beauty and tranquility. The majestic fountain stole my heart with its enchanting display while the corniche itself provided a serene escape from city life. If you're ever in Jeddah, make sure not to miss this captivating destination!

The fountain is nice. Visiting this area in the evening or night is beautiful. The fountain is a bit far but the view and the red sea is beautiful.

Tallest fountain which looks very nice in the night time with the lights. Visited this place by 8 PM for the first time with family and enjoyed spending the time. Felt humidity was more than normality.
