(31.25° N 32.29° E Arabic بور سعيد, transliterated Būr
is a northeastern Egyptian city near the Suez Canal, with an
approx. population of 500,000.
economic base of Port Said is fishing and industries, like
chemicals, processed food, and cigarettes. Port Said is also an
important harbour both for exports of Egyptian products like
cotton and rice, but also a fuelling station for ships that pass
through the Suez Canal. Port Said also thrives on being a
duty-free port, as well as a summer resort for Egyptians.
Said is in many ways Egypt's most beautiful city. There are
numerous old houses with grand balconies on all floors, giving the
city a distinct charm. Port Said's twin city is Port Fouad, which
lies on the eastern side of the canal. The two cities coexist, to
the extent that there hardly is any town centre in Port Fouad. The
cities are connected by free ferries running all through the day.
Said was designated to receive the gift of what is now known as
the Statue of Liberty, then called "The Light Of Asia."
When the current government decided that it was too costly of a
project, "The Light of Asia" was shipped to New York
City where it became an American landmark.
