6 Destinations Around The World Which Are Still Cheap Even When US Dollar Is Strong!

“If travelling was free, you would never see me again”, how often have you heard people saying this? Quite Often right! We cannot promise you free travels but if there is one thing which we can make you feel good about, it has to be certain places around the world where the US Dollar makes certain things affordable that were almost un-affordable sometime back. In these places, the exchange rate would be your greatest savior:

1. New Zealand: (1 USD= 1.47 NZD)

Until a couple of years ago, the NZ dollar and the US dollar were almost at parity. But, today one would never deny that it is the perfect time to take a New Zealand tour which is a paradise for the nature lovers. Considered to be an “insta-worthy” place, New Zealand is a mix of adventure sports which you can indulge into and at the same time find your own corner and peace for a calm and peaceful getaway. If you are a foodie, well! You might never want to leave New Zealand.

2. Argentina: (1 USD= 38.18 ARS)

It’s a matter of fact that out of all the countries, Argentina is one such country which offers most savings for dollar carriers. Some of the additional benefits for the American travellers is that the Argentine government has removed the 160$ “reciprocity fee” for all the US Citizens and the foreigners would be getting a refund for 21% value added tax on the hotel stays. The quaint and bustling cities of Argentina are surely going to swipe you off your feet.

3. Norway:  (1USD=8.57NOK)

Norway is said to be one of the most expensive countries (in terms of cost of living) that you can ever come across. Nonetheless, Norway has become relatively cheaper from the previous days. Once you have explored Oslo and all that it has to offer, there is no greater joy and lifetime accomplishment of watching the famous Norwegian fjords

4. Colombia: (1USD=3193.95COP)

The change in exchange rate has made Colombia one of the most accessible and easy going country out of all the other countries in South America. The country has been going through a renaissance of sorts in food, art and technology. The remote regions of Colombia offer some amazing eco-tourism spots which can be called as those lesser heard spots which no one generally talks about.

5. Indonesia: (1USD=14578.65IDR)

Today, Indonesia gives you a better value for money in terms of Dollar currency than it used to give you couple of years ago. The most obvious yet the best places where you can spend the rupiah include the beautiful place that Bali is and Yogyakarta. Bali Tour Packages takes you to places where you can expect to find rich amount of bio-diverse coral reefs from across the world.

6. Mexico: (1USD=20.36MXN)

Mexico is still recovering from the devastating earthquakes which occurred last year but with all it’s might, Mexico is a country which happens to be a delight for the lovers of street food and with all the cultural wonders it puts up in front of its tourists.

World’s Tallest Statue Set To Be Inaugurated In India

The towering figure of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel who was a popular political and social leader is set to be unveiled on October 31. The 597 feet tall statue of India’s freedom hero is going to stand above the Narmada river in the state of Gujarat. A total of 1850 metric tons of bronze has been spent in making the statue.

The announcement of this ambitious project was done way back in 2010 by the current prime minister Narendra Modi who was then the current chief minister of Gujarat. This new record holder would be taking over China’s Spring Temple Buddha which has held the status of tallest statue in the world since 2002.

Located 125 miles southeast of Ahmedabad, the total cost of this project has been 430 million dollar in total and 2500 laborers have worked hard for the final completion of the project. There were Chinese migrant workers as well who were assisting with the project.

The statue is expected to become a tourist destination and the viewing gallery near the chest of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel would give visitors a magnanimous view not only of the nearby lake but also of the Shool Paneshwar Wildlife Sanctuary which is a wildlife sanctuary yet to be explored by many Indians as well as locals of the state.

The Prime Minister’s project includes a museum, research and entertainment centre and a three star hotel which has been built in a nearby complex. Previously the tallest Indian statue was the Statue of Equality standing tall at 216 feet and honoring the Hindu Philosopher Ramanujan.

This global landmark might turn out as a famous tourist attraction!
