1. Dead Sea

The Dead Sea has drawn visitors for millennia, and served as one of the world’s first health resorts, thanks to finding favor with King Herod and King David. The body of water sits at Israel’s border with Jordan and Palestine, and its hypersaline nature makes for a uniquely fun swimming experience–bathers will notice a feeling akin to floating. The Dead Sea also has immense restorative powers, and has been used as a source for cosmetics and other health products for years.
