Welcome to Nigeria, the supposed "giant of Africa". By population standards, we are truly giants. Even when we discuss abundance of natural resources, Nigeria is always on the forefront. Our dear country is that good. However, we do have a problem. Relative to perhaps the most widely known currency, the United States Dollar (USD), our own currency, the Nigerian Naira is very weak. At the time of the publication of this article, the currency exchange puts the Nigerian Naira at 1USD= 388.00NGN. Of course this figure is subject to constant and in fact rapid change but it is obvious that the Naira, at the moment, is a weak currency.
In most countries of the world, the Naira is near valueless but here's the good news: our currency might be weak but it is not the weakest. In fact, the Naira sets itself higher than a good number of other currencies. We can say that our situation is less worse than other countries. This article would give you the names of some of these currencies and the country in which they are spent.
In ascending order, I give you 10 countries where the Nigerian Naira would make you live large. Here is the countdown:
Cambodia is a 181,000 kilometers square country which shares its borders with Vietnam in the east, Laos in the South, Thailand in the northwest region and the Gulf of Thailand in the west. Cambodia is located in far away Southeast Asia.
Cambodia has a estimated population of about 15 million people and the most widespread religion in the country is Theravada Buddhism. If you have a soft spot for Buddhism, you might want to go to Cambodia.
When compared to the currency we spend here in Nigeria, the Cambodian Riel to the Nigerian Naira is fixed at this exchange: 1 NGN= 10.57 KHR
1000 NGN = 10,570 KHR

Paraguay is one of the two South American countries mentioned in this article. It is also one of the few landlocked countries on the South American continent. Although Spanish is spoken in Paraguay, Guarani is the nation's most widely spoken language.
