"Taif - The Garden of Hijaz" At Ta'if by June.b

At Ta'if Travel Guide: 9 reviews and 32 photos

Summer Capital

With it's cooler climate, Taif is the nearest place to seek refuge from metropolitan Jeddah's hot summer months.

It's about 2 hours trip from Jeddah and an hour from Makkah.

The winding road that leads to the city up on the mountain plateau is fascinating albeit dangerous. It's a zigzag road, exciting as you go up and exhilirating going down - a challenge for experienced motorists.

The city have a lot to offer nowadays, with more attractions like the 45-minute cabole car ride and the playground at the end of the cable ride.

Nice to come to this city on weekends.
