Destinations Where The Dollar Goes Further

Destinations Where The Dollar Goes Further, Is your passport collecting dust? Want to go on a trip but worried about stretching your dollars? Well, what if I told you there are a number of exciting destinations beyond our borders where the greenback is as good as gold?
Mark Orwoll, International Editor at Travel + Leisure magazine, says, depending on where you go, the US dollar can offer a ton of bang for every converted buck.
The local currency in this Central American paradise is pegged two-to-one to the U.S. dollar and the conversion won’t disappoint. A full culinary experience in a mid-price restaurant costs less than 20 dollars per person. And you can find lodging here for as little as $50 a night.
Head on further south and the U.S. dollar will be met with similar VIP treatment in Argentina. It’s capital Buenos Aires is known as the Paris of South America and luxury-seeking travels can find 4-star hotels for less than $75 a night.
Another country where the dollar goes farther is Taiwan. While hotel prices across Asia have jumped by an average 4 percent year-over-year, rooms in Taipei, the capital of Taiwan, have fallen 10 percent. The Regent Taipei, one of the top hotels in the city, goes for roughly $250 per night. And you can book a 4-star hotel for as little as $100-$125.
While the economy is going through a rough patch, tourism remains strong in Greece. In Athens, hotel rates have dropped 15 percent since last year. For example, at the Westin Athens Astir Palace Beach Resort, the Taste of Athens Package costs less than $200 a night. It comes with daily breakfast, free tickets to ancient sites, and free shuttle service to and from the hotel.
