Organised by the Abu Dhabi Tourism and Culture Authority (TCA Abu Dhabi), the visit of the SCTA team along with Mohamed Abdullah Omari, the executive director of the General Authority for Tourism and Antiquities in Makkah and several officials from the Jeddah Municipality, was conducted to promote the Western Region and to identify the rapid growth of tourism in the area, said a statement from Tilal Liwa Hotel.
Ayman Ashor, the general manager, Tilal Liwa Hotel, said the management had arranged a tour of the property and showed the visiting delegation its facilities and services.
