Fontaine du roi Fahd - Djeddah

4.8Commentaires

La description

Située sur la côte ouest du royaume d'Arabie saoudite, à Djeddah, la fontaine du roi Fahad est ainsi nommée car elle a été donnée à la ville de Djeddah par le roi Fahad. Construite entre 1980 et 1983 et ouverte au public en 1985, la fontaine du roi Fahad est la plus haute du genre au monde, avec une hauteur d'eau maximale de 853 pieds, ce qui est plus haut que la tour Eiffel (sans l'antenne).

Concevoir

Visible de l'autre côté de la ville de Jeddah, la fontaine du roi Fahd peut éjecter un total de 16 tonnes d'eau dans l'air chaque jour à une vitesse de 375 km/h. La fontaine est la plus belle après la tombée de la nuit lorsqu'elle est éclairée par plus de 500 lumières intégrées au design de la fontaine. L'eau change de couleur alors qu'elle monte vers le ciel contre le ciel nocturne et offre un spectacle fascinant qu'il faut voir pour le croire.

Meilleur moment pour visiter

Si vous pouvez vous y rendre juste avant le coucher du soleil, vous pouvez facilement trouver un bon point de vue car la plupart des touristes s'y rendent après le coucher du soleil. De plus, vous pourrez profiter de la vue sur le soleil couchant, brillant sur la mer alors que de minuscules gouttelettes d'eau de la fontaine caressent votre peau et créent un effet relaxant et apaisant.

Ensuite, vous pouvez faire un détour de l'autre côté de la route jusqu'à la rue de l'hôtel Ritz Carlton où des stands de nourriture, des cafés et des restaurants servent certains des meilleurs cafés, sandwichs et pâtisseries de la ville.

A must-visit place in Jeddah. The fountain was donated to the city of Jeddah by King Fahd, hence its name. It was constructed between 1980 and 1983 and was launched in 1985. King Fahd's Fountain is listed in Guinness World Records as the highest water fountain in the world. Beautifully engineered the “corniche” was full of people family and friends chilling and hanging out while enjoying the view The ice cream tea snacks available there were good except for Tea.

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.
