The Big Mac index was introduced in 1986 as a humorous illustration of the country’s Purchasing power parity and it has been published by The Economist since then.
In eDreams, we’ve found that the average price of a Big Mac burger is around 3.70€. But we all know that a simple Big Mac (not the meal) doesn’t fill you up and that there are tastier dishes around the world!
We want to prove to you that you can get different kinds of healthy meals in Asia for the same amount of a Big Mac in Europe.
