A Inside Look at Jeddah

Posted by Kelly Wong on

Every day is a new challenge, a new learning experience. Everyone you encounter teaches you something new. Our friends at Jamjoom Optical recently introduced us their city, Jeddah in Saudi Arabia. 

Jeddah, the commercial capital of Saudi Arabia, is also one of the art capitals of the region. Along with dozens of galleries, museums and collections, Jeddah is also one of the largest open air museums in the world with sculptures featured throughout the city.
