Transport in Sinai

n  Coaches:

Regular coashes connect the Red Sea Resort cities along the coast of South Sinai and Cairo. They run along the coast fairly frequently and quite reasonably priced, but unfortunately we have NO information on times or fares L

Between the Red Sea Resort cities and Suez there are frequent microbuses along the coastal route. Enquire locally.
