A spectacular natural wonder the Dead Sea is perfect for medical tourism. The leading attraction at the Dead Sea is the warm, soothing, super salty water itself – some ten times saltier than seawater, and rich in chloride salts of magnesium, sodium, potassium, bromine, and several others. The unusually warm, incredibly buoyant, and mineral-rich waters have attracted visitors since ancient times, including King Herod the Great and the beautiful Egyptian Queen, Cleopatra. All of whom have luxuriated in the Dead sea.
The Dead Sea was crucial during the Roman and ancient Greek eras of rule. Despite its importance for trade, the sea remained blocked from 1453 until the Treaty of Paris reopened it in 1856.
It is still a major economic hub today and a fantastic resource for nearby fisherman. A vacation to the Dead Sea is also highly well-liked by both locals and tourists because it offers swimming, diving, and snorkeling opportunities.
