The largest human floating image at the lowest spot on earth

The Guinness World Record for the ‘The Largest Floating Human Image in the world’ was set recently at the Dead Sea, Jordan.  

About 261 staff from the Crowne Plaza Dead Sea Resort & Spa, Holiday Inn Resort Dead Sea, Marriott Hotel Jordan Valley Resort & Spa, Movenpick Resort & Spa Dead Sea, Kempenski Hotel Ishtar Dead Sea, Winter Valley Warwick Resort & Spa, Dead Sea Spa Hotel, Hilton Dead Sea Resort & Spa, and the King Hussein Bin Talal Convention Center collaborated to set this record. The employees - a mix of Jordanians and expats wearing uniformed colored shirts - locked hands to form the peace sign.

The Dead Sea Jordan, the lowest spot on earth is recognized worldwide for its award-winning wellness and medical spas, International hotel brands, a state-of-the art Convention Center and is also the source of the Dead Sea cosmetic and therapeutic mud and salts. 

Bethany beyond Jordan which is the baptism site of Jesus Christ is also in the Dead Sea area. Biblically, the Dead Sea was also the place of refuge for King David. It was one of the world’s first health resorts (for Herod the Great), and it has been the supplier of a wide variety of products, from balms for Egyptian mummification to potash for fertilizers.

The Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan is a modern, vibrant nation and one of the most politically stable nations in the Middle East. From the haunting, primeval starkness of Wadi Rum, to the teeming centre of urban Amman, and the majestic ruins of bygone civilizations to the timeless splendour of the Dead Sea, Jordan is a unique destination. 

It is a 6.5 hour flight from Delhi and a 5.5 hour flight from Mumbai and is connected to India by its national carrier Royal Jordanian Airlines and other carriers.
