Preferably, endeavour to avoid spending the night in Suez.


For inexpensive favourites such as ta’amiyya (Egyptian variant of falafel) and shawarma (meat sliced off a spit and stuffed in a bread roll with chopped tomatoes and garnish), take a wander around the Sharia Talaat Harb area.

Drinking & Nightlife

The centre of town, along Sharia Al Geish, has plenty of traditional ahwa and shisha cafes.

Down near the port are a couple of small, dimly lit and sleazy bars. Unless you fancy some bawdy port action, we recommend giving them a wide berth.
