The Suez Canal is the world's greatest shortcut. Opened in 1869, it allowed ships to travel between Europe and Asia without having to navigate around Africa or traipse overland between the Mediterranean and the Red Sea. This gateway leads to the ports of Egypt and the Red Sea.
The port of Safaga, Egypt, has become a popular Egyptian seaside resort specializing in water sports and diving holidays. But Safaga's real lure is being the gateway to Egypt's mighty and mysterious past, the great Temple of Karnak, the vast necropolis known as "The Valley of the Kings," the ruins of Luxor Temple, and Ramses II's great temple at Abu Simbel in Aswan.
On the tip of the Sinai Peninsula lies Sharm El Sheik, snorkellers and divers will revel amidst reefs swirling with tropical fish; almost as bright are the stalls of Bedouin handicrafts back on dry land.

Israel's largest sea port, Ashdod is your gateway to Jerusalem, a world-renowned city of great religious significance for the Jewish, Christian and Muslim faiths. Ancient sites are scattered throughout the holy city, with the golden Dome of the Rock peeking out above its skyline.
