It offers great views of the Mediterranean, perfect for watching ships passing in and out of the canal. However, Port Said is not just about location; it is a charming modern city with a distinct style of architecture, a cosmopolitan character and good value Port Said hotels. Plus, the weather in Port Said is great all year round!
