A must-do experience for anyone visiting Jordan is a swim in the Dead Sea. The Dead Sea is unique because it is eight times saltier than the ocean, thanks to the unique geography of the area. This high salt content means that life is absent from the sea, but it also means people can float without any effort.
This wasn’t my first time in the Dead Sea, last year I enjoyed the curative waters from the Israeli side, although this time I was ensconced in a comfortable Jordanian resort which offered a lot more privacy and relaxation.
Regardless of where you try it, it’s something you’ll never forget.
Here’s a brief look at what it’s like to float along in the Dead Sea.
