I highly doubt that anyone reading this post has the Dead Sea on his top 5 destination list. Well, I’m pretty sorry for that fact, as the Dead Sea is one of the coolest places you’ll experience. We’re here to change your mind! Many people think that the Dead Sea is a hole in the middle of nowhere, but in reality, it is just a one hour bus journey away from Jerusalem. You can easily spend a day at the Dead Sea by travelling a short trip from Jerusalem.
Once you are at the Dead Sea, you have many things to enjoy. The Dead Sea Spa is one of the most popular places to visit. It is located approximately 100 yards from the sea. You can walk from the spa to the shoreline. The shoreline is soft sand, however, you can’t walk here barefooted because of the salt mixed in the sand, which will bite or irritate the skin of your feet. Therefore, you must wear sandals before starting the walk. The water of the Dead Sea is the saltiest water on the planet, allowing you to easily float on the water without effort. After completing your swim, you can go back to the spa and smear the famous mud of the Dead Sea all over your body. Afterwards, taking a nice hot shower will leave you feeling completely refreshed. After all this, a meal at one of the incredible Dead Sea restaurants is a must.
Did you know that the Dead Sea is the lowest place on earth? I bet you didn’t. The air in this region contains 95% more oxygen than anywhere else and is considered to be one of the healthiest places in the world. If you want to go shopping, the best idea would be to buy mineral beauty products made from the mineral contents of the Dead Sea. The common minerals that the Sea contains are boron, zinc, magnesium, potassium, calcium and much more.
Spending a day at the Dead Sea can really turn your tour to the Holy Land from great to spectacular. So, what are you waiting for? Book your trip today!
