Money Matters…

Shopping nuns…

The money that is used in India is called the Indian rupee.

Some of the current exchange rates are as follows:

1 US $ =             54 rupees

1 UK pound =   88 rupees

1 Euro =             71 rupees

1 Chinese yuan  8 rupees

To give you an example of how far your money will go in India here are the cost of some common items:

Soft drink       ~  20 rupees

Choc bar         ~ 10 rupees

Soap                 ~ 14 rupees

Face cleanser ~ 60 rupees 

Banana             ~ 3 rupees

You will find that your money goes a long way! Kids love going to the markets because you can buy a toy or trinket for only 10 rupees…   

N.B. Please check the internet or your bank closer to your trip to check the exact exchange rate.     

I'd love to hear from you...
