Sri Lanka among top 5 currency-friendly destinations for Indian travelers

In Budget 2023-24, the government announced a tax collection at source (TCS) of 20 per cent on foreign tour packages. 
A couple of days ago, a lot of controversy erupted over credit card payments being brought under the ambit of liberalised remittance scheme (LRS), which meant that credit card payments made abroad would also attract a TCS of 5 per cent without any threshold. 
We have, however, seen a partial rollback with international debit and credit card spends of up to Rs 7 lakh now being made exempt from TCS. 
However, foreign trips still remain expensive, especially with the rupee falling against the dollar. 
For travellers from India, exploring places where the Indian rupee holds a stronger position can make for an even more delightful vacation. 
Here, we present five destinations where the Indian rupee’s strength will allow you to experience more without breaking the bank.
