by Rohit Bhattacharya

We always complain about how expensive it is to even go abroad, let alone

buy anything there. The States, the UK and a couple of other places have
come to symbolise the world for us. While it's true that our currency is
pretty weak, there's no denying that there are places you can go to and
things you can see with our own desi rupaiya that will make you feel like a
total king. Check out these places where you can get the best of those
hallowed monies.

1. Bolivia : 1 INR = 0.11 Boliviano


Hotels in Bolivia are insanely cheap, so if you plan on heading there for a
bit of sightseeing, don't delay. Hit up Rurrenabaque, a small town with a
jungle and river close by. A great place to drink, eat and stay for pocket
friendly prices, despite the currency difference.
They've even got hot springs!

3. Zimbabwe : 1 INR = 5.85 ZWD

Around The Web

1.00 INR is equal to 5.85 Zimbabwe dollars, making this a pretty cheap
getaway, in terms of immediate gratication. The stay might not be cheap,
but that is offset by the fact that food and generally everything else is
unimaginably low priced. This is due to their 1000% ination rate in recent

The Ruble, which is the currency to this landlocked country, actually clocks
in at 0.0058INR. That is quite a blessing, as you can soak in the culture in

they're still in the Soviet era. There's lakes and forests and all kinds of
other attractions, so just give up on your preconceived notions of Eastern

6. Pakistan : 1 INR = 1.58 Pakistani Rupee

Combine that currency difference with the fact that it is supported by the

things like snickers dark, which cost a bomb here. Real estate is also very
affordable here.
