My husband and I recently got married and traveled to Europe for 25 days and loved our experience! We are ready for our next adventure and cannot decide between Thailand or Japan. We are 27 years old and are big foodies and love shopping/ sightseeing. We plan to travel between Dec 10- January. Staying for at least 2 weeks or 2.5 weeks. Can anyone offer any insight on the weather in either location?
I heard Japan is extremely cold and I am concern that it will limit sightseeing for us. But then again I see some lovely photos in Japan with buildings covered in snow so it seems like a wonderful experience.
Thailand seems to have great weather during November and December. I also thought about making a small trip to Cambodia or some other South East Asia area. We were thinking of staying in Phuket and Bangkok.
We would love some traveler advice on where to spend our winter break. My husband will be going back to school for his MBA soon and we have to follow a tight school schedule meaning only winter break, 1 week for spring break, and summer break for traveling :(. We definitely want to enjoy as much of the world as we can.
