Where to go for my first international trip?

I'm a college student who was just awarded a scholarship for study abroad. The problem is I'm not entirely sure where to go! I've traveled all around the US and what I like the most are places with a good night life, historical areas and events and small businesses and restaurants owned by the average joe. I'm split between Madrid, Seoul and Osaka Japan. What do you guys recommend? Any other tips and suggested are appreciated!

    The Netherlands
    Everyone speaks English, nice cozy country, people are friendly enough, good nightlife, easy to go for a citytrip somewhere else during the weekend.

      Netherlands can get boring easily, I traveled half the country and every city looked the same, but it is good for a weekend.

      I'd suggest Peru, you can find multiple biomes in just one travel, there are plenty of archeological sites and places to hike and explore.

        Excellent advice.

        Amsterdam was my first and Lima my 3rd.

        Amsterdam is a great tutorial mode for travel as yeah everyone speaks english, huge backpacking scene but very safe and western.

        Peru has everything you want in it. If you're indecisive about desert, jungle, cooming, beach, world wonders or food Peru has 10/10 in all of those. It's just also going to be more of a shit show than going some cushy western country like NL

          Yeah, but if OP is sedentary and fat, Peru wouldn't be a good idea because he will need to do a lot of exercises otherwise he may die due the altitude.
          Peru is also not a good place to coom, locals are very ugly and not very open as the rest of latin America, you may find some ppl at hostels but you can't coom in a room wish 8 shared beds.

          Ah, and another good thing about Peru: You won't find stinky pajeets and chinks hosted there, unlike Amsterdam. If you share a hostel with poos you wasted your opportunity to make friends to explore the city.

            I'm in shape and often hike. Only problem is Peru is not offered in my school. Only South American places are Brazil, Argentina and Uruguay. All of the EU, Australia and some of Asia/SEA are available

    If you're not particularly interested in Asian culture, I highly recommend Madrid or Barcelona. The language is easy enough to be conversationally fluent in a semester if you make an effort and aren't moronic. Young people will generally have good English, and the nightlife and food scenes are top-notch.

      What the frick are you talking about? Madrid and Barcelona have a great nightlife (Barcelona especially). Euro women in study abroad programs are especially easy because Erasmus is a party semester with easy classes and people have nothing to do other than hang out and get drunk. Spain also has a reputation as a European party destination. Every woman who's chosen it is has gotten the memo.

      Less time studying = more time spent fellating you.

      Femcel detected. I bet you love Seoul because those stupid kdramas have you convinced Korean men are sooo much more romantic than Western guys. But they hate feminists more than anyone, make no mistake. They're smart enough to hide it until they've gotten in your pants. American boys are at least honest about how they feel. Men are the same everywhere.

    Unless I was Korean or Japanese, in which case I might want to visit Seoul or Osaka just to see what it was like, I would go to Madrid. Madrid will have a lot more to offer and would serve as a good base to explore most of Europe and the Mediterranean if you really wanted to. You could conceivably see an entire continent.

    The amount of developmentally stunted tards in here...

    Madrid has good proximity to other countries easy to access, but the nightlife in Europe is kind of dull because it's mainly go out with your family or close friend group, and you won't have anyone

    Seoul is the winner in nightlife, you can easily socialize and meet people, mostly other foreigns because Koreans stick to themselves, but the party never ends there and it's great

    Osaka has lively nightlife but it's not as great as Seoul, however it's very culturally interesting, more than the rest and can offer some unique experiences that cater to foreigners and enhanced with Japanese knowledge, while the others don't really care for foreigners at all, you are also a plan ride away from any other country both here and Seoul, more isolating

    So these are the choices. But based off of my own experiences and research you might consider these options

    Prague
    Almaty
    Warsaw
    Berlin
    Dublin
    Shanghai
    Istanbul
    Bangkok
    Rio de Janeiro

    >babys first trip abroad
    Spain or Italy. You cannot frick it up by choosing either of these two spots.
    >Spain
    Madrid as a capital city is meh, I genuinely don't find it that interesting, but you can head to Barcelona from there for a more party atmosphere and you can also head down to Sevilla and Andalucia for some real kino stops. If it's a semester abroad, you can also take flights in europe for as cheap as like $40. My cousin is actually doing this now studying in Salamanca, him and his friends split an airbnb and go to a new country every single weekend.
    >Italy
    You cannot go wrong with the basic b***h trip of Rome > Florence > Venice, it's filled with the wonders of the old world and really whets the appetite for international travel. Food is highly accessible, the amount of things to see and do are unrivaled, and many of the greatest wonders of the world can only be found here.
    >Seoul
    It's a megacity and that's about it. Fun drinking culture, many young people speak english to a decent degree, lots of great clubs. It's nice but it doesn't really offer a lot besides city living on steroids. The perk is the train will take you anywhere in the country but the downside is that most megacities are the same and lack variety. Also, no google maps in the country so first time travelers can get kinda screwed with directions when in the country itself.
    >Osaka
    It's great, but the nightlife won't be as hot as the rest of the options. Japan is also the least tourist friendly of all these places, especially when it comes to the train system (zero english at kiosks and stops/terminals). Despite this, if you can manage it will be the best trip possible in terms of cultural depth.

        While not kino financial advice, you may really want to look into getting several thousands ($4-8k) in student loans to exclusively finance tourism while you do your semester or year abroad. The fact is that you'll be able to make that buck have a lot more bang when you're already in Spain and can move from country to country every single weekend as opposed to later when you have time restrictions from work and the excessive cost of flights and accomodations compared to what you'll have now.

        Being able to consistently pay $250-400 a weekend to visit a new spot in europe consistently is far more valuable than having to spend $2,000 for a week coming there from america. If you decide you dont like the travel aspect you can always just return the unused money, but if you decide you really want to make the most of it then it's better to have that money on hand so you can fully take advantage of the unironically best opportunity you'll ever have in your life to travel this freely.
