The Dead Sea was amazing.
It is situated 400m below sea level as the signs point out.
I'm not a great swimmer and to float this easily was very strange.
The mineral properties are supposed to be healing -so I gave it a go!
You have very soft skin when you rinse this off!
The hotels are not too bad either. Here's our room's view of the pool, and the Israeli coast.
From here we travelled on to Petra.
