Every traveler wants to know where they can get the biggest bang for their buck, especially when it comes to food. Whether you’re considering a permanent move abroad, and want to know where you can live like a king, or are simply curious to know if you’ll have enough money to fill your belly on your week-long trip to Scandinavia, here’s your answer.
This chart, created by numbeo.com, shows how many days of food $100 will buy you in countries across the world. The chart-makers count one day of food as 2,400 calories, including carbs, protein, dairy, fruits, and vegetables. The results are pretty wide-ranging and staggering.
With the exception of Mexico, a North American can generally stock up on nine to 12 days worth of groceries for $100. Europe’s results are all over the board, however. $100 will buy you five to nine days of food in Switzerland, Sweden, and Norway, while in Eastern European countries such as Serbia and Moldova, $100 is enough to eat for over three weeks. India joins Eastern Europe at the far end of the spectrum, but if you really want your dollar to go a long way, you’ll go to Kharkiv, Ukraine. There, you could eat for 33 days for just $100.
