Suez is a city in Egypt.

Hitchhiking out

East to Sinai, Israel

From right next to the train station at the outskirts of town, a road goes north several kilometers to the tunnel running under the Suez Canal. Cars will not stop for hitchhikers on the road just before the tunnel, believing it is forbidden to take foreigners across. However, if you walk to the police roadblock in front of the tunnel entrance, they may be willing to put you in a vehicle bound for your destination in Sinai.

West to Cairo

Instead of hitchhiking, it's much easier to take a train to Cairo, which costs only 5 Egyptian pounds.

Update September 2018: According to a local, there is only one train a day going rob Cairo and it leaves at around 6 in the morning. It costs between 7 and 10 pounds. (They weren’t quite sure the actual price.)
