Where We Are Going Today: Signature juices: shaking it up in Jeddah

Signature juices are redefining health and people are loving it. In a world of monster shakes and sugary drinks, Signature is bringing freshness with a modern twist. Their juices are fresh, delicious and pleasing to the eye.

Signature also has coffee and fruit shakes although their shakes are not like others. They pour strawberry puree and, over it, a chilled thick strawberry shake to add to the richness of the drink.

Signature started out as a shop with the goal of making everyone a fan, slowly becoming a social media trend much like Overdose Cafe and Criollo Cookies. Its Instagram account has 156,000 followers.

The interior adds to the experience — it is much more fun to drink in the cozy and well-lit area of the shop.

Signature is located at King Abdul Aziz Road, Ash Shati district, Jeddah.


AlUla cultural and heritage site to reopen in October

AlUla cultural and heritage site to reopen in October

  • Historic destination in northwest of Kingdom will now be accessible to visitors all year round

JEDDAH: When you’re already a quarter-of-a-million years old, a few months out of action because of a coronavirus pandemic is no more than a blip in time.

It is therefore safe to say that when visitors return to AlUla, the culture and heritage destination in northwest Saudi Arabia, not a lot will have changed.

AlUla’s attractions, including the Kingdom’s first UNESCO world heritage site, will reopen in October — and they will now be accessible all year round.

Walks, treks and trails will be available, guided by the local Rawi (Arabic storyteller) or self-guided, for visitors who want to delve deeper into the stories and customs of the region.

A visit to AlUla is a transformative experience to all who have visited — its vast open spaces, its secrets of civilizations gone by and the pure wonder of its landmarks.

“We are developing immersive, light-touch experiences that harness the power and silence of the landscapes, experiences like guided stargazing in a desert night sky that has inspired science, religion, philosophy, art and literature for millennia,” said Phillip Jones of the Royal Commission for AlUla.

Adventure tourists can tear around in a desert buggy or take to the skies in a vintage light aircraft to see volcanic craters and the lava fields of Harrat Khaybar. 

For families, Hijrat Noura, or Princess Noura Farm, offers a chance to observe the local flora and fauna. Winter Park, developed for the Winter at Tantora festival, will also return.

“A visit to AlUla is a transformative experience to all who have visited — its vast open spaces, its secrets of civilizations gone by and the pure wonder of its landmarks,” Jones said.
