Port Said: A Trading Hub and Tourist Spot on the Mediterranean Sea in Egypt
As the name suggests, “Port” means a harbor to which and from which goods are imported and exported and visitors use it to travel from or to a place or a city or a country.
The question now is, who is this port named after? Port Said city is named after the Egyptian Khedive (ruler), Muhammad Said who decided to establish it as a trading center.
What is the first thing that comes to mind when Port Said is thought of as your tourist destination? Once Port Said is mentioned, a number of things come to mind: the sea breeze, fresh fish, brand apparel as well as food items and patriotism.
Located on the northern end of the Suez Canal, when you travel to Port Said, do not miss a walk on its beautiful beach and enjoy the tantalizing peaceful sea breeze.
Whatever burdens or negativity you have been recently experiencing, take it from me, a walk by the sea during the sunset is all that you need to get away from it all.
Add a hint of tranquility to your day during your visit to Port Said with a solitary walk on the beach or a good company of your loved ones. Truly, the sea view in Port Said is charming.

My mouth is watering just talking about the host of ways of serving fish in Port Said restaurants.

Being a trading spot, Port Said is regarded by traders and sellers as a provider of a wide range of goods that are sold at a low price (mostly half-price); and this gives them the opportunity to buy those products at a relatively low price and sell them at a high price based on the quality of clothes material and brand.
For chocoholics, international fine chocolate brands are sold in Port Said at an affordable price. Chocolate is selling like hot cakes in Port Said. Buy some quality chocolate there and get them sold at the same price in the market and make profits.
