Port Said is a port city in northeastern Egypt at the mouth of the Suez Canal in the Mediterranean Sea.
The basis of Port Said’s economy is fishing and the chemical, food and snuff-box industries. In addition to being a refueling station for ships crossing the canal, it is from Port Said that a large part of Egyptian production is exported, such as cotton and rice. But Port Said is also a free zone and a summer resort for many Egyptians.
There are many old houses with large balconies on each floor. On the eastern shore of the canal is Port-Fouad, which can be reached by ferry. About forty kilometers to the south, the El Qantara bridge allows the passage from one bank to the other.
