Tahlia Street (Arabic: شارع التحلية‎) (Also called : Prince Mohammed bin Abdulaziz St.), is an important fashion and shopping street in the mid-town of Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. It contains many upscale department shops, and boutiques, such as Prada, Gucci, Versace, Cartier, Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Dolce & Gabbana, Ralph Lauren and Giorgio Armani. As the Champs-Élysées St. is for Paris, Tahlia St. is believed to be the heart of Jeddah and Saudi Arabia's wealthiest district.

This commercial street is often the destination soccer-fans, who drive up and down waving club scarfs and sounding their car horns to celebrate victory.

An identically named street in Saudi Arabia's capital Riyadh, Prince Mohammed bin Abdulaziz St., has been nicknamed Tahlia Street by the residents as it coincidentally shares many similarities with the original Tahlia in Jeddah.
