    Japan or Korea?

    Taking a vacation soon to either Japan or Korea but can't decide which one. Any suggestions or experienced travelers?

    What's the difference.















    LOL can you imagine a post like that. Go to Japan, they're the technologically cooler one.

    Go to Japan. More to do and friendlier people. Better food too!

    Depending on how long you're there, you can also just take a weekend trip to southern Korea. Pusan is only 2 hours from Narita by plane.

    Korea, but only if you're a political geek like me and wanna see North Korea while you're at it. Else Japan.

    North Korea would be intersting to visit, and I'm a big fan of South Korean culture, but I think Japan would be a better place for vacation.

    South Korea has Lotte World and Caribbean Bay though.. they both look quite fun!

    My dad was stationed in Japan and South Korea and he said he prefers the Japanese food and scenery to South Korea so I'd go Japan.

    I'd say Japan, but South Korea might be cheaper.

    If you go to Japan, be forewarned that, contrary to popular belief, their technology and the internet in general is pretty much stuck in the stone age. Outside of Tokyo, banks apparently don't know what either Visa or MasterCard are and, as such, there's no such thing as an ATM or Point of Sale that will work with your card. It's pretty much cash only in the entire country. The only places it's not like that are in Tokyo and Kyoto. Both cities are stupidly expensive as well.

    I'm absolutely serious.

    Neither, stay at home save money, but if you have to, I would suggest Korea, Not because i like one anymore than the other, Japanese people seem to have gone through a lot already due to some natural disasters, and probably need a break from visitors, coming just to ask stupid questions and stare at everything, just my guess.

    So you didn't even bother scrolling down to see what he said. Which means you didn't notice the extra long post section, and you called him a douchebag... classy.

    You don't know how long I've been waiting to bust that image out in an appropriate situation.

    I really don't like this post "Japanese people need a break from all you Gaijin" is what I pretty much just read... all those Gaijin = profit for their country, which they really need.

    One week to both

    Japan is probably the best place to go on vacation.

    I would take South Korea. I could be mistaking but i think they are a bit more international than Japan

    Well it is just a guess, i am not from there, but I know they probably get a lot of slack jawed tourist, and probably the majority of the people that live there probably hate it, but i could be wrong, you live in or from Japan?
