According to these figures not:

 

Strongest purchasing power on arrival. Here´s the price of a basket of goods inc beers, water & meals, which costs £72.14 in the UK (Brighton), compiled by the Post Office at today´s exchange rates (it can vary by city too - this was priced at tourist resorts):

Hungary (£37.4

I agree.  Since we moved here basic food items have gone up in price a lot.  However, most amenities are still much cheaper than in the UK so it does balance it out a bit

 

Quoting turkaturk

According to my purse I would say that the figures are right.

My vacation in Turkey this year cost me MUCH more than any other year.  Gas was expensive, food was expensive, even souveniers where even more expensive.  Still it was somewhat cheaper per day than vacations I have taken elsewhere recently.

This Texan almost fell out of the car when the nice man brought me the bill after filling up the tank.  I asked him if the decimal was in the wrong place.  He laughed...I cried!  Cry  At least I got a free car wash!
