Taking a trip to a foreign country might be the next entry on your bucket list, well, you are not alone just like you many others plan but don’t implement it because of the stumbling block called MONEY. For us Indians traveling abroad is an expensive gig. We usually think that having a holiday in abroad is going to cost us a hefty amount. But, this is far from the truth, the only reason you think like this is because of the lower value of Indian Rupee (that you believe).
What if you are told that Indian rupee is not that low as you think, it is, in fact, higher than the currency of several beautiful countries. There are several exotic countries and places where you can enjoy like a king with Indian currency in your pocket. You can live your international-vacay dream without sweating loads of money.
Pack your bags, get your passport ready and get on a ride to those countries where you can have rejuvenating holidays without burning a hole in your pocket.
