The Japanese currency’s decline has created a golden opportunity for international travellers. This economic rollercoaster might be causing some jitters in Japan, but for tourists, it translates to amazing savings.

According to a recent survey by Post Office, a well-known UK travel resource, Tokyo snagged the coveted number four spot on their 2024 list of most affordable long-haul destinations! The survey compared costs across 40 popular vacation spots, taking into account everyday expenses like sunscreen and dining experiences.

The Post Office survey focused on expenses that travellers typically encounter, including:

  • Daily essentials like sunscreen and insect repellent
  • A three-course dinner for two

The results were impressive! So, imagine enjoying a glass of delicious Japanese wine for just around £3.63 (S$6.23). Then a romantic three-course dinner for two won’t set you back much more, averaging around £40.12 (S$68.87). These prices are fantastic on their own, but depending on your home currency, the exchange rates could make them even more enticing!
