The Dead Sea
The Dead Sea’s name is ironic today; the area is positively alive, given the number of Dead Sea meeting facilities, five star hotels and spas which have sprung up on its banks.
The Dead Sea is so called because its waters are the saltiest in the world; only bacteria can live in them. The concentration of the water is so dense that you can float on the lake without effort. The Dead Sea waters contain rich chloride salts of magnesium, potassium, calcium and bromide, making it a magnet for health seekers.
This is the lowest point on the surface of the Earth. The lower atmospheric pressure, UV ray exposure and higher oxygen levels in the area have made it known as a health resort since the days of Cleopatra.
The ancient site of the Cities of the Plain, Sodom and Gomorrah, the Dead Sea today has a serene, otherworldly charm. Nearby Madaba is a historic town of mosaics; Jerash is a Rome away from Rome, an immaculately preserved Roman encampment. While there, you could even take part in a RACE, a Roman Army and Chariot Experience.
The capital, Amman, like Jordan itself, offers the best of old and new. Amman is a blend of ancient and modern, where you can visit cultural centres or the many cafes which offer traditional Jordanian hospitality. A wide range of local and international cuisines can be sampled in this cosmopolitan city’s restaurants.
The Dead Sea is an ideal location for conventions and events, where cutting-edge facilities exist amidst a rich history. Work can be done in an atmosphere of peace, using state-of-the art facilities in natural surroundings, which makes for a winning combination.
