The Saudi Seasons is organizing for the first time “Taif Season” to introduce the city as a preferred Arab tourism destination. The event will host 70 different activities at 4 main areas namely: Souq Okaz, Flower village, Camel Festival and Sadat Al-Beed. The organizers opt to introduce visitors to the enjoyable Taif weather and its diversified art and culture.
The history of Okaz city is associated with “Souq Okaz”, an old traditional market addressed by visitors of the Arabian Peninsula in the old days. The area has been renewed and is capable now of hosting major events including the “Arab Street” with the participation of 11 Arab countries. The festival hosts the Arab Poetry Competition. People can also visit the historical market and the culture area in addition to enjoying the Arabic music.
