The Suez Canal (Arabic: q+n+a+tm a+l+s+w+y+s+, translit: Qana al-Suways), is a large artificial maritime canal in Egypt west of the Sinai Peninsula. It is 163 km (101 miles) long and 300 m (984 ft) wide at its narrowest point, and runs between Port Said (Bur Sa'id) on the Mediterranean Sea, and Suez (al-Suways) on the Red Sea.

Location is derived from the great work of WikiMapia

Kwangtung Voyage #39 Tuesday 21st June 1994: Suez Canal Northbound In 1994, I spent three months working on a container ship sailing between Europe and ports in the Indian Ocean. I recently discovered my slide photos from the trip, and have scanned some of them into my computer. One of the interesting sights in the canal (apart from my first sighting of a camel) was this reminder of the tensions between Egypt and Israel: During my four hours on the bridge, we passed what appeared to be a driving school for tanks. As a good piece of irony, there was a memorial to the Second World War directly behind. But next to that was a group of mobile rocket launchers, all aimed east. And finally, beside them was a mosque.

A section of Suez Canal passing through the city of Ismailiya in Egypt. Each fifteen minutes one ship passed through the section, while we watched them from a restaurant garden. It's amazing the amount of money this canal generates!
