Arabs, British, Dutch, Chinese and Portuguese all left their mark in the sub-continent. There is something for everyone ranging from culture, wildlife, sun and sand to indigenous medicines
(PRWEB UK) 11 February 2016
The popularity of the sub-continent for tourism surged last year as a record number of tourists arrived in Kerala, Sri Lanka and Maldives. The Hindu, on 29th December, reported an increase of 4.5% of tourist visits to Kerala with British being the No. 1 European market. Similarly, according to Lanka Business Online, Sri Lanka and Maldives reported 18.1% and a 10.3% increases respectively.
“Arabs, British, Dutch, Chinese and Portuguese all left their mark in the sub-continent. There is something for everyone ranging from culture, wildlife, sun and sand to indigenous medicines,” stated Trevor Samuel, Senior Manager at Thomas Exchange Global. “It’s a place to turn back the clock.”
The South Asian sub-continent is considered a very economical and popular tourist destination. However, Indian Rupees and Sri Lankan Rupees are not freely available in London at competitive prices.
“There are very few places to instantly buy Rupees in London and usual waiting time range from 1-3 days,” said Samuel. “Thomas Exchange Global is the one stop shop with the best exchange rates to buy local currencies to India and Sri Lanka over the counter on same day.”
In addition to currencies for the sub-continent, many other Asian currencies such as the Thai Bath, Indonesian Rupiah, Vietnam Dong, Malaysian Ringgit and 100 other foreign bank notes are available for instant purchase at any of Thomas Exchange Global’s locations.
