You may stay at Al Taif which is around 2hrs 45mins drive from the crater. I highly recommend this place. Road is good. AlhamdulillahWritten 11 July 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- Part of Arabian Centres portfolio of shopping mall, Jouri Mall looks like just its sister malls elsewhere. It is built on an oval-shaped layout with shops lined up on the right and left wings. The food court is on one end of the mall.
Lots of upper end shops but no supermarket for groceries shopping.Written 2 January 2021
- One of the must see list here in taif..its about 30kms from down town . long walkway they call it aljadeh. And many stores in both sides.
You can see a theatre in both side ends..many traditional things.. And also show rooms some ministries..and future vision for TAIF CITY.Written 14 October 2016
- I read the reviews about Shubra palace and knew that it was closed but hoped to find out more information when we get there and we were disappointed.
The palace was built in 1905 on the orders of Sharif Ali Pasha. The palace is the most stunning vestige of old Taif, with latticework windows and balconies, and interior marble from Carrara as we saw on some websites and later from the windows since the palace was closed when we were there.
King Abdulaziz (The establisher of Kingdom of Saudi Arabia) used to stay here, and the palace was later the residence of King Faisal during his Summer holidays. Now it has been turned to a museum.
We were there hoping that we would get the chance to discover this wonderful palace but unfortunately, there was no sign about opening hours / time. There was a big sign that shows the city of Taif is going to host a festival on Summer and later we were informed that the palace opens only on Summer.
It’s a pity and shame that the municipality of Taif is not taking care of and paying more attention to this wonderful historical palace yet and I hope they do, one day.Written 12 January 2020

- Just have little confusion that Saiysad national park and Taif National park is same or not? There is Saiysad dam inside the park and you will not see water in all seasons. Just nice place for family hang aroundWritten 23 October 2021
- This was the first time I went here and it was nothing special. They do have quite a variety of animals yes, but besides that it was nothing like London Zoo lol. 1-2 hours is more than enough here. I don't really intend on going again unless I hear about ew animas/new restaurants etc.Written 6 September 2019
- It’s good place to visit with family, kids enjoy their time here as they have many swings and slide.Written 8 January 2021
- This is a park located in the Hada area near Taif, KSA.
It is a green area in desert mountains. Very soothing loaction.Written 19 January 2018
- The park is a nice place for families but also for couples. It’s clean and plenty space to sit. People are nice and it is a safe place. Close to the supermarket and plenty parking place when you come not too lateWritten 5 January 2020
- Al Hada is the first place you'll arrive if you are driving from Jeddah to Taif.
The place is surrounded by mountains covered in clouds most of the time. There's a cable car service connecting the lowlands to the peak. I am sure it is a joy for thrillseekers.
There's a fruit market on the way down where one can stock up on fruits and vegetables before returning to Jeddah. Unfortunately the only produce that I can confirm to be locally grown are corns, flower plants and cactus fruits. Others look the same as ones you can get in Jeddah, maybe even cheaper.
Not far further down the hill is where colonies of baboons live. Many cars actually stopped to take pictures or feed them.Written 9 January 2021
- Heart Mall I guess was one of the first malls to open in Taif. The architecture and tenants seemed to point to this fact. However its advantage is it is located in downtown Taif.
It has the only Panda supermarket in Taif and that's where we headed to for essential supplies. There were other outlets like Bodyshop, perfume and abaya shops as well as a food court.
Business was bustling despite COVID-19. Just a word of caution, the parking spaces by the street are paid while the basement parking is free.Written 9 January 2021
