Egypt - Suez Canal (PDF Chapter)
This is the Suez Canal chapter from Lonely Planet’s Egypt guidebook.
Although this region is often bypassed by travellers, anyone with an interest in Egypt’s mod-ern history will enjoy the crumbs of former finery on display and there’s a slower pace to life here that will be appreciated by those with time up their sleeve.

- commute from Africa to Asia in 15 minutes flat: jump on the ferry from Port Said to Port Fu-ad to sample life on the canal
- take a break from Egypt’s usual hectic pace among the colonial-era villas of Ismailia
- restaurants & accommodation
