Galala city is located on the highest mount plateau in the Red Sea area between Ain Sokhna and Zafarana, 650 meters above sea level. The new city centers on a balanced approach towards development and preservation of the surrounding pristine environment. The master plan focuses on developing a sustainable, dynamic, and mixed use area based on a framework of: land use, public land transportation and road systems, and public spaces that integrate the existing ecological conditions. The city will offer residential areas, including the highly prized modestly priced housing, a major university, King Abdullah Bin Abdul Aziz, commercial, cultural, religious, medical, educational, and touristic villages. All these activities are tightly interconnected with network of pathways, roads and open green spaces. A new road is currently being built connecting Ain Sokhna to Zaafarana through the Galala plateau.
