Last Friday (August 19th, 2016), KAUST arranged an Explore Saudi Arabia trip to Taif, a mountainous region located in the Mecca Province, Saudi Arabia. We visited the Teleferic Cable Car, Taif fruit market, Al Shareef Museum and Souk Okaz (a traditional night market and cultural gathering).
It was a really interesting trip, especially for those who love and appreciate nature scenery and culture. Taif itself is a nice place, the weather was pleasant and mild, unlike other places in Saudi Arabia which are really hot and humid during this summer season.
