Journeying in this part of Saudi Arabia is a great adventure, so why not jump in the car and explore some of the other villages, towns and cities in the vicinity of Bisha.
Every place contains a fascinating history and this area has plenty of its own stories to tell. The ruins in these parts provide a great snapshot to the past. If it starts raining cats and dogs, fear not, Western Province is home to a wide range of history museums, that'll keep you and your family busy.
No vacation is complete without a bit of R&R. Beach combing is one of the ways they relax here. Here and sunbathing is another.
For discerning travellers, one of the joys of being in new places lies in discovering new ways to enjoy food. Make sure you visit the region's cafés and restaurants. Mutabbaq (stuffed pancake) and mabshour (meatballs with rice and yoghurt) are two meals to sample.
The 23rd of September is the day when many people in Saudi Arabia mark Unification of the Kingdom, so keep an eye out for special events and festivities if you happen to be vacationing in Western Province at that time.
Even the best vacation can't last forever, so when it's time go home, you'll find the nearest major airport in Jeddah, 250 miles (402 kilometers) to the northwest.
