Ain Sokhna is located about 110 km east of Cairo; you can drive there in less than 90 minutes along the Katameya Road. If you don’t have your own car or are not up for renting one, getting there by bus is easy enough. From Almaza Station in Cairo (tel. 419-8533), East Delta buses leave for Suez every 30 minutes from 6:30am through 7pm. After the 80-minute, LE 7.25 trip, hop a micro-bus and pay about LE 5 for a 20-minute ride to Ain Sokhna
Most visitors to Suez and the Suez Canal will be onboard of a cruise ship. It is an amazing event to cross the desert onboard a ship and see nothing but sand. Ships travel in convoy and have to wait half way for the convoy arriving from the opposite direction.
