Located at the lowest point on Earth, the Dead Sea is amongst the most interesting places to visit in Jordan. Dead is actually a lake straddling the borders of Jordan and Israel.

The sea’s hyper-saline is the phenomenon that makes people float on its water without any equipment, and its mineral-rich mud is used for therapeutic treatments. There are also plenty of beach resorts around the coastal road for a comfortable stay.
