The region has seen innumerable invasions right since the times of the Romans and attracts tourists from all over the world for its heritage. The country is rich in historical sites and has many things to offer including the desert and the seas. One of the must visit sites is the sea of Galilee. While some areas of Israel have recorded the highest temperatures ever in the continent of Asia, parts of Israel also receive snowfall each year.
This country has been teaching the world about drip irrigation, water conservation, environmentally friendly ways of generating electricity and above all making sea water potable. Yes, in this desert you’ll even find floriculture at a massive scale.
