Because spring is here, let me share to you guys the full bloom in Yanbu. Yanbu is situated at the western side of Saudi Arabia in Al Madinah province. It is approximately 300 kilometers northwest of Jeddah. And also the second largest city by the Red Sea next to Jeddah. The name ‘Yanbu al Bahr’ means ‘Spring by the Sea’ in Arabic.
For the past consecutive years, Yanbu holds a yearly flower festival showcasing the world’s largest flower carpet and varieties of different flowers. Yes, you read it right! Yanbu is a holder of the Guinness Book of World Records as the ‘Largest carpet of flowers.’
I know this post is a little bit overdue because this year’s Yanbu Flower Festival was already finished. It started last March 3 and ended March 19. Although the festival was already finished, the park is still open for public to view the beautiful flower landscapes.
Here are some snaps of this year’s flower festival.
Looking forward to another beautiful Flower Festival next year.
