I had no clue about the Dead Sea until I started planning my trip to Jordan.
I got to the Dead Sea and learned that it is the lowest point on Earth and a source of natural salts! What I found fascinating is that nothing can survive in the Dead Sea due to the high salt content and minerals—which also means the water is therapeutic. I smeared myself with tons of mud before I went into the sea.
The most magical part was the buoyancy, which allowed us to recline and read the newspaper. You can't sink even if you try.
Tip: Don't stay more than 15-20 minutes in the water.
