The street does not have any artistic graffiti or drawings as the name suggests rather its the cafe, restaurants, the trees, flowers and the lights at the night. A good place for a walk although you might find it difficult to get a good parking spot nearby.

Tea in the avenue! Art Street a scenic, pleasant and calming place to unwind, read, relax, and reflect while sipping delicious tea or coffee. The better time to visit is around 2.30 pm when it’s quiet and not heaving with people; only the melodious chirping of the birds to accompany you.

A really really good place. It has good restaurants with the street view. But you should better come during the months when the purple trees bloom.

It's not much of a big deal, to be honest. I was disappointed because I was expecting more from what i saw in the reviews and photos. The place is beautiful, no doubt, since it has a lot of beautiful flowers, but it seems to be over rated. It is a park basically, and a walking area, with cafes around. None of them are open in the morning, which again is a shame. Such beautiful weather in Abha, and a park with cafes like that is NOT open in the morning. What's the whole point of it then?
