    9 Countries where dollar is strong, AR is on the list

    Hanoi is great, like the old French neighborhood. But I find the people in the south much more pleasant. For thousands of years, they (north and south) are two different countries. I like sun, happy people and metropolitan feel in Saigon, you can find a place to eat at 3am after Salsa dancing...

    9 Countries where dollar is strong, AR is on the list

    https://www.smartertravel.com/countries-dollar-goes-furthest/ Vietnam is still way cheaper than Argentina and it's easy to get things done too in Vietnam. But they do not have Teatro Colón or Tango or lomo.

    Will I get charged a tax if I bring a PlayStation 4 through EZE?

    It's important to bring your receipts, so you can argue if there is a charge. Last time I brought a giant TV box with me, there is no way to hide. The custom guy looked at the receipt and only charged me the part that is above $300 (3 years ago) and I paid it with my credit card, easy. I did...

    They cant handle it, with broken airlines that's on strike all the time and business owners eager to rip off tourists.

    number of tourists to Argentina

    Yes, the ticket is always expensive, never there is a break. It's cheaper to fly to any part of Europe from US cities than to Argentina. You pay more to visit a poor man's Europe than real Europe :)

    number of tourists to Argentina

    Your observation is correct. The number is steady. The airlines do not see a big increase in business, that's perhaps United killed one of the routes after merging with Continental. 5 million a year, is not a small number, but not significant either . One of the reasons is that it's too far for...

    number of tourists to Argentina

    Number of tourists that visiting Argentina has been steady up over the recent year, from 5.5m in 2010 to 6.6m in 2017. That's not bad. If you are in hotel business or have a few airbnb units in Argentina, this number is quite small for a country of this size, compared to visitor number of...

    Did Trump save Venezuela?

    This might be off the topic a little bit, Obama administration was so weak, they allowed Chinese navy to chase US warships around in South China Sea, and saw China rack up 500 billion trade deficit a year not knowing what to do. A lawyer who has no business sense. Trump totally reversed that...

    Did Trump save Venezuela?

    Maduro needs to leave. If not were for the US military options, he would have opened fire on his people. US is an oil exporter now, not interested in their stinking oil. Plus, how can US oil companies just take the oil from Venezuela ? They did no take it in Iraq, Chinese oil companies are in...
