For a particular city, is it possible to get a tree structure?

OSM doesn't have a clean hierarchy of settlements (largely because the real world doesn't). I'd suggest you spend some time exploring what OSM data there is in the area you're interested in, and how each object is tagged.

Hi Richard, Thank you for your comment. How do I start with something simple. For example get a list of coordinates for all the city districts in say, Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.
