Taif or Ta’if is found east of the holy city of Mecca. It is around 3 hours drive away from Jeddah and is also called summer capital of Saudi Arabia due to its relatively cool climate and breathtaking scenery.
One of the highlights of our visit was the Telefric or cable car ride. It was a 21-minute adventure down the rocky slopes of the Hejaz mountains.
We also visited the highest peak in Al Shafa just in time to take family photos with the golden sunset as our background.
More than the peaceful ambiance and interesting places to see, we also got to experience Pinoy hospitality that trancends borders and nations. It was also a wonderful bonding time with our kids who practically grew up together here in K.S.A.
Thank you to Contreras family for planning this trip! Thank you to your friends who welcomed us in their homes and prepared our food! Thank you dear AGCF family friends for always being a blessing! May God continue to bless your generous hearts!
