Taif. We heard a lot about this place. It’s a hill city 180 kms away from Jeddah.
Our trip was sudden and unplanned. So we missed most photographically interesting places. But that’s made us decide to make a more detailed trip next time.
Anyway here are some images of Taif…….
The meandering roads cut through the hills
Taif is a preferred destination for people living in around Jeddah. Relatively lower heat and the view of the hills provide a much needed respite from the traffic heavy life of Jeddah.
There is an old market place called Sook Okaz, a nature reserve and a hillside fruit farm – all of which we couldn’t visit. So we’ve left the good stuff for our next visit. Until then…..
