What is the distance between Marsa alam (not the airport) and Port Ghalib? How long a drive is it? I was scheduled to attend a conference in Port Ghalib, but hotels are booked for a part of my scheduled stay, probably because of the official opening and Beyonce's appearance in Port Ghalib Nov 6. I am told that the nearest hotels to my Pt Ghalib Conference are in Marsa Alam. If it is too far a daily commute - twice a day, I am reconsidering whether I will attend. I am in the Bahamas, and am very excited about the chance to visit Egypt!
