Jeddah is the gateway to Mecca. And instead of that Jeddah is regarded as the most liberal and cosmopolitan city in Saudi Arabia.
Jeddah is also much more ethnical mixed than any other Saudi city, this is because of the gateway to Mecca and the oil boom that brought thousands of (non) Muslims to work here. All non-Muslims are resident expatriate workers.
