I am considering doing a day trip from Makkah to Taif and was wondering if this is allowed as I know historically, foreigners could only visit Makkah and Madinah. How long does it take to get from Makkah to Taif and what is the best mode of transportation? What are some must-see attractions in Taif that I should include in my itinerary? Are there any good restaurants or cafes in the city that you would recommend for lunch or a snack? Are there any cultural or historical sites in Taif that I should make sure to visit? Are there any outdoor activities or nature spots in the area that are worth checking out? How much time should I plan to spend in Taif on my day trip?
