THE DEAD SEA
Everyone talks about the Dead Sea, but no one tells you about the fields of date palms you pass on your way there

What you do hear is how slimy you'll get (true), how much of a rip off the packet of Dead Sea mud is (negotiable), and how NO local would EVER go to the touristy wasteland that is the Dead Sea.
Q: What is it like to float in the Dead Sea? A: It's like this.
