A little more about the Dead Sea
A visit to Jordan would simply be incomplete without a stop at the lowest point on earth.
Not only is it a great novelty to float effortlessly in the saline water but the thick brown mud on the seabed will exfoliate and soften your skin in the most natural way possible.
The Dead Sea valley is typically Mediterranean with mild winters and hot summers and is a natural greenhouse rich in minerals. In ancient times it was one of the most fertile places in the Middle East and some of the world's oldest civilisations sprang up here.
