Bur Sa‘id's sister city is on the other side of the canal, which you can cross by free ferry. You can see large vessels and pretty homes from the slightly malodorous and rundown ferry. Port Fouad was built for the employees of the Suez Canal administration. With its English colonial-style houses and front gardens, it is a stark contrast to Bur Sa‘id's bustling port-city/bazaar atmosphere.
