Sinai is the only region in Egypt that is located in the continent of Asia versus Africa. The the Sinai Peninsula serves as a land bridge between the two continents. Over the past several years Sinai has become an extremely popular tourist destination due to the magnificent natural habitat and views, the astonishing coral reefs, and the rich biblical history.
