It is called the City of Roses, as you can smell the fragrance of roses from neighboring orchards. Famous for its salubrious climate, scenic beauty and variety of fruits that attract tourists from the rest of the Arabian Peninsula, Taif also has a very old history.
To enjoy a beautiful short holiday, or to spend an unforgettable weekend, visit the ruins of the Taif historical wall where you will appreciate the ancient architecture of Al Hijaz. To travel through time, don’t forget to visit the Okaz Museum, the National Museum, and the Shubra Museum. But, for the most beautiful adventure, fly by cable car above towering mountains to feast your eyes on beautiful greenery around and below you.
For a longer vacation, you can drive by car to Makkah through Hada road and enjoy the unprecedented magnificent views on your way there. Within one hour, you can reach Jeddah to enjoy the magical nights by the sea or wander through the town in the evenings. If you would like to experience a mountain trip, take a drive to Baha, which is only 250 km from the city.
