Jordan is an interesting place. The main bastions of civilization are by western standards not that impressive, but what this country lacks in infrastructure it surely makes up for in truly amazing natural landscapes.
Perhaps the most recognizable natural asset in Jordan is one that is shared with Israel in the Dead Sea. With extremely high levels of salt, it is said nothing lives in the Dead Sea, but that does not mean there is nothing to see. The sea is extremely buoyant, forcing everything that enters it to the surface.
