This winter, Jazan province is a hotspot for travelers seeking solace, hikes across picturesque landscapes, the chance to experience the region's world-famous coffee, and even investigating investment prospects in a booming leisure industry.
Prince Mohammed bin Nasser bin Abdulaziz, who is in head of the Tourism Development Council in the Jazan area, gave his approval to a plan to develop the province's tourism industry. Since then, the Farasan Islands Track and the Jazan City Track have been authorized as hiking trails for tourists.
Exploring Jazan, Saudi Arabia(@touchtheworld6) December 26, 2022
Yesterday started with a walk, mixed grill for lunch & a mountain hike to Adosareyah Castle.
The castle was gorgeous & sits on the highest peak with stunning views. Dates back to ottoman times & the curator showed me around. Then a bus pic.twitter.com/WOoLAdHenW
The Heritage Village is also a significant tourist destination, whereby the village's director Mohammed Ali told Arab News that it was popular because of its architectural design and cultural legacy. There are some old stone and mud structures that depict the manner of living in the past.
Furthermore, UNESCO has called the coffee grown in the mountainous governorates as one of the best products in the world. The 7,000-acre settlement, according to Ali, is the meeting place for the traditions and practices of the Tihama, coastal, and mountainous areas.
Many tourists from all around visit the village marketplace and purchase traditional goods such as popular traditional clothes, oud mixtures and incense for the body, all made by the womenfolk.
After touring the town, tourists can board a ferry to the Farasan Islands, a reserve famed for its unique biodiversity and different ecosystems that is a part of the UNESCO-sponsored "Man and the Biosphere Program." The fact that the voyage takes only an hour has thrilled the numerous tourists. They therefore enjoy the view of the island and the dolphins, as well as the chance to partake in their favorite activities such as diving, fishing, and trekking and sampling the exquisite seafood.
Due to the abundance of coastal beaches that are rich in fish, shellfish, and seashells, Jazan and Farasan are well known for their commerce in fish and pearls that are sold and transported to nations all over the world.
