10 Countries Where One Indian Rupee Could Get You A Lot More Than An Eclair!

I always seem to be broke these days, even if it’s nowhere close to the end of the month. I can’t even remember where I spent all that cash. Somehow, money just doesn’t have value these days.

Or does it?

In these 10 countries, the value of the Indian rupee is still higher than their own currency. I suppose that means we could be a lot richer there.

Check them out!

1. Sri Lanka

8. Paraguay

A landlocked country, Paraguay’s subtropical forests, savannahs, Mennonite colonies in the marshy wilderness of the Chaco, and unusual history can make it an intriguing place to visit.

A Nordic island nation, Iceland is unique in its dramatic landscape complete with volcanoes, geysers, hot springs and lava fields, as well its rich cultural life, handicrafts and cuisine.
