You will be picked up from your hotel in Taif. Start the tour with the most stunning Shubra Palace of old Taif with latticework windows and balconies including interior marble from Carrara. King Abdul Aziz used to stay here and the palace was later the residence of King Faisal. A unique amalgamation of Arabic and Romanian architecture that's worthwhile photography. (It's currently closed for renovation), however you can still visit from outside as it offers enough photographic angles and it's historical for this region. Then head to a very nice Al Rudaf Park which is suitable for family. Its a great place to relax and enjoy the beauty of nature! There are music fountains, grasses, small rock mountains, and play grounds for children. Proceed to old souq a former largest and best known open air market in the islamic world, nowadays hosts thousands of tourists from around the world. The tradition of poetry recital competitions, arts & crafts exhibitions remain in the souq today. Then go to Taif’s Heart Mall, the oldest and best shopping mall in Taif to explore ancient footprints of the market, flower orchids and spend wonderful time for shopping, playing and eating. Continue to visit Al Shafa mountain and Al Hada mountain, It’s considered as one of the most beautiful and important mountain roads in the region. It connects Taif city with the other regions on the west and north. It acquires enchanting and attractive views.
Taif is often dubbed the “City of Roses” and it isn’t hard to see why this title has been allocated to the place. Stretched along the roads and streets of Taif are many vendors displaying cork boxes full of fragrant homegrown roses, fruits and other fresh produce. Then travel to the Rashid Husain Al Qorashei Rose Farm and Factory located on a hill in Alhuda. Its a famous spot for seeing the traditional rose perfumes being made. Many options of perfumes, fragrances, but some of them are pricey. Then a nice drive up Al Shafa mountain is the highest mountain in the area of the town. Its also known as Jabal Dakkā. Enjoy walking and climbing up Shafa mountain. It’s a difficult walk or climb, but the views are fantastic and well worth the effort. The higher up in the mountains you feel the gentle cool air. Amazed about so many different plants and trees, herbs and fruit bushes growing everywhere. It’s rich on natural resources as honey, rose gardens, herbs and so much more. A cable car at extra ticket journey up to the Al-Hada Mountain starts down in Al-Kurr Village and takes visitors all the way up to the mountaintop, where an upscale restaurant and hotel are located.
