Dead Sea is a Finalist in the New 7 Wonders of Nature Campaign

The Israeli Tourism Ministry is calling upon fans of the Dead Sea from around the world to act as ambassadors for the lowest place on earth and vote and help promote voting for the site in their communities for the finals of the New7Wonders of Nature online global campaign.

The Dead Sea is competing as an international site on behalf of Israel, Jordan and the Palestinian Authority against 27 other natural sites around the world. It consistently ranks among the top half of finalists as seen in each week tally. More than 1 billion people are expected to vote in the campaign, either online or via text message, for the seven winning sites. 

The Tourism Ministry is promoting the Dead Sea voting via its 14 offices overseas, its website in 11 languages and a multi-faceted international marketing campaign that includes social media.

The Dead Sea is competing with the Amazon River, the Galapagos Islands, the Grand Canyon, the Great Barrier Reef and the Maldives to name a few for the top 7 spots. These sites have advanced to the finals by beating 440 other natural sites in the earlier stages of the campaign. Based on the results of the previous New7Wonders campaign, tourism to the Dead Sea and the entire Middle East would be expected to increase significantly if the Dead Sea is among the seven winning sites, to be announced on 11.11.11.

“The Dead Sea is one of Israel’s natural and tourism treasures and a win would encourage tourism to Israel in general and the Dead Sea region in particular, while creating new jobs and leveraging touris
m activities in the area,” said Tourism Minister Stas Misezhnikov.

Israel’s Tourism Ministry cites seven reasons to vote for the Dead Sea as one of the New 7 Wonders of Nature:

  1. It is the lowest place on earth
  2. It is the saltiest lake in the world
  3. It is the largest natural spa in the world
  4. Its clear bromide-rich air leaves you feeling relaxed and calm
  5. Its unique black mineral-rich mud is good for natural and healthy skin care
  6. The year-round sunshine is UVB filtered and healthy
  7. It is a desert experience, rich in history, archaeology and natural beauty.

The New7Wonders of Nature campaign is the initiative of the New7Wonders Foundation headed by Bernard Weber. Some 100 million votes from around the world were cast in the 2007 manmade New7Wonders of the World campaign. The Dead Sea is on Facebook or visit the website, http://votedeadsea.com.
