About At Taif
Ta’if is only one hour away from Mecca, but surprisingly the weather is totally different, when we left Mecca the temperature was 40 C compared to 23 C in Taif, this is why it is described as the summer capital of Saudi. It was a great escape after spending 2 days in crowded Mecca. We really enjoyed Taif, it has many to offer ,we have seen the rose plantation and visited the oldest rose water factory in town (Gadhi rose factory), we had the chance to see some historical houses in Taif but only from outside as all of them were locked and closed!!.
