The Daying Dead Sea is a man-made pool beneath a very large dome in Sichuan, China. The pool was constructed at the same latitude as the Middle Eastern dead sea. Its water is treated so matches its natural counterpart. With forty-three different minerals and microelements and twenty-two percent salinity, bathers float freely on the surface much like they do in the Middle East.
On July 11th, over 8000 people from all parts of China flocked to the pool for relief from this summer’s punishing heat. As far as we can tell, the pool’s motto is “There’s always room for one more.” Enjoy.
