2. The Dead Sea
One of the world’s most astonishing aspects when it comes to science is the dead sea. As the title already helps us understand the Dead Sea is stretched out on the lowest point that can be found on the Earth’s surface without any digging. The sea water here has more salt content than any other water body in the world which makes it practically uninhabitable for the fish. Another thing that is astonishing about this is the fact that you cannot drown in the Dead Sea no matter how hard you try to do so. There are no fish living or dead here no plants to help you wind your way around the deep sea. But it is still said that going deep sea diving here is a worthwhile experience.
3. Wadi Rum
The valley of water or Wadi Rum as the locals call it consists of centuries old river beds and huge areas of dry sandy desert combined together. This valley is located in the south of Jordan.

Going here will definitely make you feel like you have entered the real life version of the Arabian Nights and you’ll just start looking around for a jinni to pop up in front of you.
