Port Said is a city that lies in the north-east part of Egypt and extends about 30 kilometres (19 miles) along the coast of Mediterranean Sea, north of Suez Canal, with approximate population of 603,800 and a total area of 1,351.1 km2 (521.7 ml2). Port Said was established in 1859 during the creation of Suez Canal.
The city has been ranked the 2nd among the Egyptian cities according to Human Development Index 2009 and 2010. Its economic base is fishing and industries like processed food, cigarettes and chemicals. Port Said is also a major harbour for exports of Egyptian products, such as rice and cotton, but also a fueling station for ships passing through the Suez Canal. It thrives on being a duty-free port and a tourist resort especially during summer months. Port Said is home to the Lighthouse of Port Said (the first in the world built from reinforced concrete).
The city has numerous old houses with grand balconies, giving it a distinctive look. Port Fuad is Port Said's twin city. It lies on the eastern bank of the canal. The two coexist, to the extent that there's hardly any town centre in Port Fuad. They are connected by free ferries that are running all through the day, and together form a metropolitan area with more than a million residents which extends both on the African and Asian sides of Suez Canal. The world's only other metropolitan area that also spans two continents is Istanbul.
