A carpet of 800 thousand unique flowers is decorating Saudi Arabia’s city of Abha in a bid to attract Arab tourists.

The flowers assembled in different shapes and sizes are spread over 26 thousand square meters.

The carpet introduces the city’s tourism slogan for 2017 , “Abha the capital of Arab tourism,” an official working on the project told Al Arabiya.net.

The city also created a dancing fountain that is 15 meters in diameter, and will shoot water up to 12 meters into the air.

Abha is the capital of Saudi Arabia's Asir province known for its mild climate, which makes it a popular tourist destination for Saudis.
