We’re so blessed to live in a country that is so rich in culture, history, and heritage. Egypt is one of the countries that is so dear to my heart. I have been living in this country for more than a decade, and I visited almost all the beautiful cities around, but there’s no city that is as beautiful as Port Said! Scroll down to know more about its remarkable monuments.
Right after Cairo, and Alexandria, Port Said is considered to be the third most important city in Egypt. This coastal city is located on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea right at the northern entrance of the Suez Canal. One of the most important monuments there is the Old Lighthouse of Port Said, it was built back in 1869 to guide ships that are passing through the Suez Canal.
If you’re planning to visit Port Said soon, then you need to read carefully. First; you can feast on the most delicious seafood you’ll ever have in your life at ‘Alam El Behar, then pamper your sweet tooth at Lord Pâtisserie, and enjoy your delicious coffee at the top hangout around town, Central Perk. You can also go on a Hantoor ride (horse-drawn carriage) to enjoy the city’s scenery, and you must go on the ferry to experience the smoothest ride of your life from Port Said to Port Fouad. You can thank me later.
This charming small city has so much to offer, with a population of 603,787, it’s remarkably easy to get around the city pretty fast, you can get to all your destinations within minutes.
