New currencies: JOD, TWD and UYU
Since last week we have three new currencies available in Eurochange: The Jordanian Dinar, the Taiwan Dollar and the Uruguayan Peso. They all can be changed into Euros or you will be able to buy them with the best rates.
Ruins of the city of Petra in Jordan
Jordanian Dinar (JOD)
The Jordanian Dinar is the official currency of Jordan. Jordan has become one of the most demanded Arab destinations for its mix of culture and history and for being one of the most open and modern Middle Eastern countries.
Among its tourist charms is the capital, Amman, with its Citadel, its Roman Theater and the ruins of the Temple of Hercules and, more current, the souks, mosques and museums. Outside of Amman the ruins of Petra are the most visited place with about 1 million visits a year. The Dead Sea and the Wadi Rum desert are other places that the traveler should visit.

View of Taipei in Taiwan
Taiwan Dollar (TWD)
The Taiwan Dollar is the currency you will need to travel to Taiwan. Taiwan is a destination in Southeast Asia that is often ruled out as a holiday destination because its neighbors to China, Japan, Vietnam or Thailand are often the preferred options. But it is a country that surprises visitors who, more and more, are encouraged to visit it.
In the capital you will find essential places such as the National Palace Museum or the Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall without overlooking the Taipei 101, the tallest building and emblem of the city. Outside the capital the charms do not disappear. Large cities are mixed with Natural Parks such as the Taroko and with beaches where you can dive, surf and other water sports or just lie in the sun and enjoy the sunset.

Beach in Punta Diablo, Uruguay
Uruguayan Peso (UYU)
The Uruguayan Peso is the official currency and, therefore, you will need to change your Euros to Uruguayan Peso if you are traveling to this country. As in the case of Taiwan, it is possible that Uruguay is a less demanded destination because it is located between Argentina and Brazil, two large tourist receivers. However, it’s a good option to visit, not so crowded and with very good options for the traveler.
In Montevideo you can enjoy one of the largest cities in Latin America full of life and history. With emblematic buildings and vestiges of the settlers, surrounded by beaches and very close to the Río de la Plata that borders Argentina. And, if you are looking for nature and beaches, you can get lost in the Santa Teresa or Cabo Polonio National Parks.
