Where We Are Going Today: Boho Cafe

Boho Cafe is known for more than the quality of its coffee; its beautiful and stylish interior is equally impressive. The moment you walk in you will feel like you have stepped into another time and place.

The cafe is not only beautiful to look at and relax in; however, it also serves delicious food and drinks. As well as the standard coffee options there are a few signature concoctions of its own devising, including the hailachinno, which mixes cardamom sauce and coffee, and a coconut latte.

Boho also serves an amazing range of mouth-watering food, including its famous chiffon cake, which is made with a variety of fruits and simply melts in your mouth.

For those watching their waistlines, the cafe offers oatmeal bowls with a wide variety of toppings that makes the dishes picture perfect and a treat to eat.


AlUla cultural and heritage site to reopen in October

AlUla cultural and heritage site to reopen in October

  • Historic destination in northwest of Kingdom will now be accessible to visitors all year round

JEDDAH: When you’re already a quarter-of-a-million years old, a few months out of action because of a coronavirus pandemic is no more than a blip in time.

It is therefore safe to say that when visitors return to AlUla, the culture and heritage destination in northwest Saudi Arabia, not a lot will have changed.

AlUla’s attractions, including the Kingdom’s first UNESCO world heritage site, will reopen in October — and they will now be accessible all year round.

Walks, treks and trails will be available, guided by the local Rawi (Arabic storyteller) or self-guided, for visitors who want to delve deeper into the stories and customs of the region.

A visit to AlUla is a transformative experience to all who have visited — its vast open spaces, its secrets of civilizations gone by and the pure wonder of its landmarks.

“We are developing immersive, light-touch experiences that harness the power and silence of the landscapes, experiences like guided stargazing in a desert night sky that has inspired science, religion, philosophy, art and literature for millennia,” said Phillip Jones of the Royal Commission for AlUla.

Adventure tourists can tear around in a desert buggy or take to the skies in a vintage light aircraft to see volcanic craters and the lava fields of Harrat Khaybar. 

For families, Hijrat Noura, or Princess Noura Farm, offers a chance to observe the local flora and fauna. Winter Park, developed for the Winter at Tantora festival, will also return.

“A visit to AlUla is a transformative experience to all who have visited — its vast open spaces, its secrets of civilizations gone by and the pure wonder of its landmarks,” Jones said.
