Israel travel guide

Sacred & Religious Sites · Historic Sites · Ruins
Land of Creation
Surprisingly diverse for such a narrow strip of land pressed against the Mediterranean, modern Israel only dates back to 1948, though the history of this "Holy Land" spans many millennia. The big three monotheistic religions--Christianity, Judaism, and Islam--maintain extremely strong ties to this part of the world, so you can expect to see plenty of historic churches, mosques, and synagogues during your holiday in Israel. Beyond the undeniable cultural appeal, Israel also offers impressive natural features, including the Dead Sea and Makhtesh Ramon, one of the world's biggest craters. As you tour Israel, you'll find yourself following in the footsteps of figures that helped shape the world thousands of years ago.

Dead Sea Region travel guide

National Parks · Bodies of Water · Beaches
Dead Sea Region occupies the lowest area in the world, located 428 m (1404 ft) below sea level. The area surrounding the hypersalinated waters contains a wealth of eclectic scenery, including rugged canyons, deserts, and many oases of lush green vegetation. Dead Sea Region trips wouldn't be complete without an adventure in the water itself, in which swimming feels a lot more like floating because of the high saline levels. A number of spas and resorts cater to visitors looking for modern amenities, while ruins of ancient sites appeal to those interested in adding a bit of history and culture to their holiday in Dead Sea Region.
