Taif

Unofficially the country's summer capital, the city of Taif lies amid a richly fertile agricultural area and boasts a history reaching back to at least the 6th century CE. At 1,700 m (5,577 mi) above sea level, Taif enjoys a pleasant, dry climate, and its many green spaces ensure a family-friendly atmosphere. Things to do in Taif include watching the sunset from the nearby mountaintop nature preserve, visiting a famous rose plantation and farming villages, and exploring the city's ancient walls. In between adventures, stop by the local souk to pick up some figs, pomegranates, or grapes and join the locals for a picnic in a park. Take a peek at our international travel planner: Taif and its charms laid bare and easily scheduled.
