This probably sounds like a silly question, but has anyone here been to both these places and if so which did you prefer?
We toured Japan by train for 2 weeks last year and really loved it.
This year I'd like to go back to Japan and see some of the places we missed, and more of some places that we didn't get enough time to see properly last time.
My husband, although he enjoyed Japan, would rather go somewhere different like Vietnam or Cambodia or both.
While I'd be quite interested to see these places, I'm not keen on dirt, beggars, touts, thieves etc, which I've heard can be problems in SE`Asia.
Japan was refreshing in that it was so clean, safe and friendly and yet still had lots of interesting sights.
