"Beautiful Jazan, Everyone's Winter Resort" is the slogan for an event happening at the heritage village on the southern corniche.
Moussa bin Ali Namis, the village director, explained that the development work involved enhancing green spaces and cultivating the plants that Jazan is famous for, constructing shops, and creating special pathways for visitors and individuals with special needs.
