$1 may not seem a lot, but you can actually buy some interesting things with the amount. While most of the things are food-related, it doesn’t hurt to know the true value of a dollar in different parts of the world.
In most countries, especially Asia, $1 can get you a heavy meal. In fact, some of the best foods you can find in Asia are not that expensive. You just have to know where to find it. Going towards Europe, a dollar is commonly associated with coffee and dessert.
