Where will your dirhams go fur­ther this sum­mer?

Strong dirham means boost for va­ca­tion time

7 Days in Dubai - - FRONT PAGE -

The great sum­mer es­cape is loom­ing and UAE res­i­dents may be in for a boon when it comes to ex­change rates.

A strong dol­lar, to which the dirham is pegged, means your cash could go con­sid­er­ably fur­ther - if you choose the right des­ti­na­tion.

Cur­rency ex­change firm Trav­elex has listed the top desti­na­tions where dirham-earn­ing UAE res­i­dents can cur­rently get more “bang for their buck”. Top­ping the chart is Namibia and South Africa.

Hol­i­day­mak­ers head­ing there can ex­pect to get 20 per cent more Namib­ian dol­lars and South African rand than they would have re­ceived last May.

Brazil, Mex­ico and Tan­za­nia make up the top five and Malaysia, New Zealand, Poland, Thailand and the Philip­pines com­plete the top ten, so check out the best and get plan­ning that trip.
