Hi. I am planing a holiday early next year and would like to know your opinions. I have two choices. First choice is Japan. If I chose Japan I will be spending time in Osaka (5 days), Hiroshima (2 days), and Tokyo (7 days). I will travel by train between cities. Second choice is America. I will be spending time in Los Angeles (as little as possible), San Francisco (5 days), Las Vegas (4 days), Chicago (5 days), and New York (7 days) if I chose America. I am planing on hiring a car and driving from LA to San Francisco then on to Las Vegas. Then I will either catch a bus or fly to Chicago then a bus to New York. Train is also an option. Funds are limited. I will have about $7500 Australian total to spend on the holiday. Accommodation will be the cheapest possible. Now for opinions? Are these solid plans or am I dreaming keeping in mind my budget. What do you think about the time I plan to spend in each city. Is it long enough to see what the city has to offer. What other places would you recommend I see in each country.
