City of Rafah in Egypt


Twenty-seven miles from El-Arish is the border town of Rafah. Notable is the changing geography, where rainfall begins to be notably heavier, and so vegetation begins to be far more lush. There are several Bedouin markets about, and apparently local leaders are attempting to introduce the area to tourism. The town marks the Egyptian border with the Gaza Strip.
