They preserve a lifestyle that has been there in the Arabian deserts since many years ago.
The Dead Sea : This is the lowest point on the surface of the earth. It flows between Israel and Jordan and is called the Dead Sea as the mineral content is 33% almost six times salty as an ocean. It is impossible to swim or sink in this water. Also, it is called the Dead Sea as no aquatic creature can survive in it. This means it does not have fish or any plants around the water. All you can see is white salt crystals and is believed that these crystal salts have curative powers.

Dear Ashish, Thank you for the wonderful trip you had organized for us in Austria in the month of January. I have seen Europe number of times in summer but never seen Austria in the winters. My personal favorite was a small place called AACHENSEE. Though I will recommend the nightlife of Vienna as well.
Dear Ashish, Thank you for organizing a wonderful trip to Egypt for our family. All arrangements, transfers, guides were all fine. The Oberoi Cruise was exceptionally good and I'm enclosing the photograph of my favorite place in Egypt - Alexandria. Here I recommend you should put all your passengers for minimum 2 nights. Thanks once again.
