Travel Superlatives and the Lowest Bar in the World

Lowest Bar in the World

I’m usually pretty dubious when a location makes a broad pronouncement like it’s the “Most photographed,” or “Oldest park bench in Tasmania.” But in this case, it could actually be true. Found at a popular beach on the Dead Sea is the Kalia Beach Bar, the self-described Lowest Bar in the World. Clever marketing ploy or fact? Regardless, at 418 meters below sea level, even if it’s not the lowest it’s darn close.

What’s the best travel superlative you’ve found on your travels?

    I don’t have the exact figures, but I think the Dead Sea Spa hotel in Jordan would dispute that. And I believe that, since my visit, they built another one lower down.

    Where I am from in Canada, the Bay of Fundy, we boast that we have the highest tides in the world. For years I knew this and then one day thought about it – who cares!

    For years Sani Mountain Lodge in Lesotho claimed to be the highest pub in Africa. Now a pub at the Afriski resort further north in Lesotho claims the title. Either way, Lesotho is an awesome country of mountains, with its its lowest point being 1400 metres (4593 ft), I think the highest “lowest point” of any country.
