One user posted this on a discussion forum, “Japan again. I went to Japan three times by myself this year, each for a month, to visit my mom. I don’t think I can visit that often in 2024. Maybe twice in 2024. But I’m taking my son and his wife with me for the first visit. That’ll be fun.” Japan has many places to visit but Tokyo is the most popular. 

6. Portugal

A user expressed their love for Portugal and shared some local tips: “Portugal is the best! If you're in the Alfama neighborhood, go to Bifanas do Afonso for the famous sandwich. It's basically just a window in the wall, and you'll have to wait in a quick-moving line, but they're super cheap and quintessential. We also love the Igreja e Convento da Graca, which was less recommended and had an amazing view from the roof.”

7. Rome, Italy
