Aqaba: A port as far back as the time of the Edomites. It was also a major city on the paved Roman road that ran from Syria via Petra to the Sinai and Egypt. Lying between a ring of mountains that change between red, violet, pink and purple with the setting sun, and bordering an azure blue sea, Aqaba is the perfect place to relax, whether on the sandy beaches fringed by palm trees or snorkeling and scuba diving. The dry, year round sunshine makes it the ideal holiday destination. A dazzling undersea universe of coral, fish and other marine life is just meters off the sandy beaches. At night the streets are full of strollers browsing in the souqs or enjoying dinner in one of the many traditional restaurants.
Dead Sea: The Dead Sea is surrounded by mountains and valleys walked by ancient prophets and imperial armies throughout the ages. At 400 metres below sea level, the sea is devoid of life due to the extremely high content of salts and minerals. It is these natural elements which give the waters their curative powers, recognized since the days of Herod the Great more than 2,000 years ago. The high atmospheric pressure and oxygen rich air make this the most relaxing and healthy place in the world.
