Aside from the Jubail Auction which gets frenzied with buyers as long as there are fish, a good way to spend a weekend morning in the vicinity is to [window] shop further at the stalls.
Moreover, eating! There are areas for dining which actually are mini-restaurants where you can give your freshly bought seafoods (much like the Seaside Macapagal in the Philippines, or the ‘Dampa’ concept) and have them cooked (usually two separate establishments).
They cook the seafoods according to your request. They can do sinigang, adobo (squid) and other kinds of Pinoy style cooking.
We had to take a couple of times. His friend (that man behind him on the bottom right photo) kept on tickling him. :)
Fish Auction, Jubail, KSA
The next photos are shots taken from the city of Jubail, KSA.
Jubail (Arabic: “الجبيل” Al Jubayl), is a city in the Eastern province on the Persian Gulf coast of Saudi Arabia. It comprises the Old Town of Al Jubail, which was a small fishing village until 1975, and the new industrial area.
In 1975, the Saudi government designated Jubail as the site for a new industrial city. Rapid expansion and industrialization ensued. The new industrial and residential areas were named Madīnat al Jubayl aṣ Ṣinā`īyah (Jubail Industrial City).*
Particularly, the next series are photos taken from the Nakheel Beach (few) and from the Fish Auction (Fish Market) which was in frenzy when we got there. It was my first time in this city.
