South Africa now cheapest place in the world to buy a beer

With a crumbling economy and a currency in free-fall, South Africa has now become one of the cheapest destinations in the world to buy a beer.

According to the Deutsche Bank’s annual Sin Index Cape Town and Johannesburg are now among the cheapest spots in the world to have a drink. Compare to the most expensive places like Melbourne, London or Singapore, where a night out (5 bottles beer) can cost you anything between R966.74 – R1039.79, in South Africa it will only set you back around R250.

This is obviously great news for locals and tourists, but if you want to travel to any destination on the planet, expect to be the broke-ass South African when it’s time for you to buy a round.
