The Dead Sea is one of the world’s most fascinating destinations, and the eastern coast of Jordan is a great base for exploring its wonders. The sea itself is the focal point of the area, being the lowest point in the world and having what is considered the second saltiest body of water. Queen Alia International Airport
is the gateway to the region, and a taxi or bus ride from there is all it takes to reach the Dead Sea.
Travelers to the Dead Sea are generally drawn to it for its unique characteristics as well as its therapeutic benefits. This certainly isn’t a place for a swim, but floating on the water without an inflatable makes for quite a unique experience. The mud along the shore is rich in minerals and is often rubbed on the skin to soak up its medicinal and therapeutic properties.
Outside of the Dead Sea are some impressive sites and attractions that deserve a spot on the itinerary. Mount Nebo
is bedecked with the remains of an excavated church and a monument commemorating Moses. The baptism site of Jesus, Lot’s cave, and Madaba, the City of Mosaics, are also popular draws for travelers here.
