This summer, more than a million visitors have descended on southwestern China's so-called Dead Sea, a swimming resort in Sichuan province that really packs 'em in. Much like the real Dead Sea, this man-made lake has much more salt than the ocean thanks to the 43 different minerals used to create it, the Daily Mail reports.

The indoor water park is one of the largest in China and can accommodate 10,000 swimmers at a time.

The site also boasts a spa, golf course and, naturally, cheerleaders.

Guess that's one way to beat the heat.
