A huge chunk of land in Saudi Arabia is desert land which is severely hot during summers and cold during winters. There is a plateau on the central section of the country and mountainous region somewhere in the western sides. The coastal plain which is next to the Red Sea is another area worth living and this is where the city of Jeddah is located. The city of Jeddah faces the Red Sea on its western side, Al - Sarawat Mountains from the eastern side, and Sharm of Salman from the northern side. Although the city of Jeddah does not possess even a single river yet there is a small Sharm Ob’hur which connects the famous Red Sea to the next end of this city.

The city of Jeddah has been facing heavy air pollution during last couple of years due to the increase in number of factories and vehicles in and around the city.
