I just lost my job. I'm about to jump on a plain with minimal preparation and planning. I'm having trouble making up my mind on where to go though. Should I travel to Hawaii, Japan, Thailand or Italy?

    Italy or Hawaii seem doable. Japan will be hard if you're not able to speak a word of Japanese, and Thailand seems like a good way to get drugged and robbed, or harvested for organs in a dark alley.

      If you have no plan, I mean. It sounds like a fun place if you do the necessary preparation.

      Do you think the language barrier will make getting around too difficult? I'm probably most interested in going to Japan but I'm too adhd to plan anything and regardless of where I go I'm gonna wing it.

        If you stick with touristy areas, getting around Japan isn't that difficult. Plenty of signs that are in English, and google maps works well for the most part.

          Do you think weather will be too uncomfortable this time of year?

            It's in that awkward stage where it can get fairly cold or warm depending on the time of day. But otherwise it should be fine.

        Like the other anon said, Japan is easy in the tourist areas. Transportation signs are in English and Google maps works great. Many things like food are also near 3rd world cheap thanks to the strength of the USD.

      Now back to reality - Thailand is the only one of these (except Haiwaii I guess if you’re American) where OP’s idea is viable

          Cheapest and surrounded by even cheaper countries that dont have strict visa rules, easy to stay without formal job, money, or credentials. Meanwhile Europe and Japan are strict on visas/residence and expensive. Hawaii is expensive but obviously if you’re American, no concern about visa there.

      Depends on what you actually want to do, there's some huge differences between the countries you listed. But regardless, remove Hawaii from your list and don't trust this homosexual regarding Thailand, just avoid motorbike taxis and be respectful to the locals even though their language is funny

        I went to Japan a month ago. Landed at KIX. I traveled around Osaka, Kyoto, and Nara. I was really pumped up for the trip, but until then, it had been underwhelming. The food and transport were expensive. There wasn't much to do other than shopping and visiting shrines, the latter of which I had completely no interest in.

        I wanted to head over to the countryside as I had been quite impressed by the hills and mountains such as Mt Atago and Mt Inari in Kyoto, which I had hiked up.

        The accommodations for the places with beautiful natural scenery were, however, even more expensive or non-existent. I initially wanted to find a Couchsurfing host in a nice house in the suburbs to stay in. However, most Japanese seemed to be too busy with work. I had no success after numerous requests sent (>50).

        I still had 4 more days to go. I had very little money left (about 7000 yen). I didn't know what to do other than be on survival mode, staying in my capsule hotel room and eating conbini food.

        The trip had been, for the most part, extremely miserable for me. Nothing compared to my times traveling solo in Vietnam and Indonesia

          Thank you, I can understand how you had that experience. What do you feel was better about Vietnam? I would be pretty interested in hearing that as well as I've heard it's pretty easy to get a visa for Vietnam.

          How long ? If a month or less just go where the weather is good, I'd say Thailand right now.
          If longer then Thailand too but take a flight to Japan 2-3 months later.
          There are millions of tourists there with 80iq and not speaking Japanese so I don't get why anyone said you need a plan and know the language wtf.

          If you go to the main famous cities then avoid tourist traps or you'll be miserable like
          . I'd suggest landing in Fukuoka and stay in Kyushu, it's the same except cheaper, less chinks and fat Americans and better food.
          If you need the country to entertain you and don't have any imagination beyond shopping and shrines then just stay in Tokyo do teamlabs and Ghibli museum with the redditors.

          If you have like 2 weeks then Italy or Hawaii are best, just go to where you feel.

            Thank you for the insight. I'm thinking I'm gonna take a month and land in Japan first and go from there to Thailand and then come back to Japan. Should I be worried about the only things to do in Japan being shopping and eating/drinking. I'm more interested in Thailand so I can go out into nature and clear my head, not for sex tourism, though I am paranoid I'm gonna get drunk some shit will happen.

            You should spend that money on schooling you unemployed loser.

            Yeah I noticed that after I posted and was waiting for someone to call me out.

      The plane ticket is cheapest though. A plane ticket to Hawaii would be around 600$. A plane ticket to Japan would be around 1000$ and a plane ticket to Thailand could cost me 1500$. Would the cost of other things in Hawaii make the cost of the entire trip comparable to Japan or Thailand?

    Hawaii has a very high cost of living. Are you looking to go there to start a new life, or do you have enough savings to justify traveling and you want to go there to relax and take your mind off of things?

    Also I don't think I have to worry about money too much since I'll be able to collect unemployment and I have a sizeable savings. I'm not happy about getting fired but the job was exploiting me anyways and I would like to take this chance to travel while I'm in my mid 20's before I get older and take the next big step in my career and get locked down. I do feel anxious about not focusing on my career though. Does anyone think it's viable to do job interviews while I'm traveling abroad?
