The city is located on the Southern tip of the Suez Canal and is considered one of Egypt’s largest ports. The port city is situated not far many scenic and important locations. The famous canal is one of the greatest engineering feats of modern record. At its narrowest point, it is about 300 meters wide at the bottom and wide enough to allow ships having a maximum draft of 16 meters. The canal can accommodate ships as large as 150,000 dead weight tons fully loaded. For tourists, the Canal Zone makes an interesting visit. At sunrise or sunset, it is a fulfilling experience to watch the ships passing through the historic canal.
