It might not be a New7Wonder, but the Dead Sea is still one of OUR wonders!

Floating in the Dead SeaSo, the Dead Sea wasn’t named Friday night as one of the New 7 Wonders of the World…

After a long voting campaign that saw a huge number of candidates whittled down to 28 top sites around a year ago, the Dead Sea had long been one of the favorites to be included as one of the New 7 Wonders. But despite losing out to a top 7 slot, it’s awesome to see it included anyway; we always knew how amazing the place was, now hopefully a few more people know too!

One major downer from losing out is not the loss of the anticipated rise in tourism to the area, but the fact that this was a great opportunity to bring new awareness to the plight facing the Dead Sea. For those of you who don’t know, the level of the Dead Sea is sinking by approximately a meter every year. Hopefully that can still be addressed…

Anyway, well done the Dead Sea for getting so close (the Final 14)!

And if you haven’t already visited the Dead Sea, we’d really, really recommend it – it’s one of Israel’s true wonders!
