The Dead Sea is among the top 10 finalists in the international New 7 Wonders of Nature campaign, which will conclude on Friday 11.11.11 at 11:11 Zurich time (13:11 Israel time), the contest organizers announced on Sunday.

Joining the shared Israeli-Palestinian-Jordanian contestant in the leading group is the Grand Canyon (United States), the Great Barrier Reef (Australia), Halong Bay (Vietnam), Jeita Grotto (Lebanon), Jeju Island (Korea), Komodo Island (Indonesia), Puerto Princess Underground River (the Philippines), Sundarbans (Bangladesh and India) and Mount Vesuvius (Italy). Thus far, the government has spent millions of shekels propelling a PR battle to secure a winning spot in the contest, which the Tourism Ministry says will bring a significant boost in visitors to the Dead Sea area and to Israel in general.
