The research showed that while £10 may buy you 3.3 pints of beer here in the UK, in Vietnam, the same amount could buy you 21. Not only that, here in the UK, £10 could stretch as far as 11 bottles of water, while in the sweltering heat of Dubai, £10 will get you a mere 3.5 bottles.

Unsurprisingly, sun cream remained one item that boasted premium prices throughout the world, with Austria representing the worst value for money at 0.5 bottles per £10. For those looking to visit South East Asia, a better deal awaits with Thailand (3.7 bottles per £10) and Vietnam (2 bottles per £10) signifying some of the better deals available in today’s market.
