What are some things $100 USD can get you in the world’s poorest country?
Ed ecco le risposte:
I have been to North Korea and $100 can get you quite some food in the “privileged supermarket” reserved for the political elites. I was able to buy soft drinks made in North Korea for like $2.
However, if you are not part of the political elite, showing that you have $100 will land you into a gulag because owning foreign currency is illegal.
Shanked and $100 stolen followed by a scuffle between thief and others who want it
I’ve been to the Philippines two times and $100 can get you quite a lot.
My first time in the Philippines it got my friend and I a cottage next to the sea, free meals (or sometimes a little more for 30 cents), scuba gear and red horse so cheap that I nearly got addicted to the stuff. We probably only spent 50 dollars max during our time on that island. Helps that my friend was Filipino so he knew vacation spots that the locals go to.
Second time I went to Puerto Princesa and took a $12 five hour bus ride to El Nido. Over the course of a week and a half I think I must have spent $300 max and that’s with loads of alcohol and food involved.
One of the most beautiful countries I’ve ever been to and with some of the nicest people to boot. I’m definitely hoping to visit again someday and would highly recommend it to anyone who can go.
Well in a decently growing second world/ third world economy, I got a professionally tailored suit, a sherwaani (the ethnic version of that suit), and a professional haircut, so there is that.
Soooooo much good beer in the chezch republic and Hungary. It’s around 39 cents American for a really good beer.
