DISTANCES FROM MARSA ALAM TO OTHER CITIES
Marsa Alam lies towards the southern end of Egypt’s Red Sea Riviera which makes it closer to the ancient sites of Upper Egypt than Cairo or Alexandria. Here I have posted a map of Egypt showing Marsa Alam’s location as well as a table showing the distance of some major Egyptian cities and resorts from the town of Marsa Alam by road and by air and further down a map showing the distance of some major world cities by air from Marsa Alam. Please note that Marsa Alam airport lies approximately 60km north of the town.
Did you know that Marsa Alam is nearer to Mecca in Saudi Arabia than to Cairo ?
Did you know that Marsa Alam is nearer to Jerusalem than to Alexandria ?
