11. Tokyo, Japan
What Tokyo lacks in affordability it more than makes up for in crazy, inspired nightlife. This city is unlike any other, offering a complete urban experience with public parks and classic small shops enjoyed during the day and then some of the wildest clubs you have ever seen rocking all night long. Flying to Tokyo is long and often expensive, although sometimes air fare deals can be found. Hotels in Tokyo are also notoriously expensive, so if you are on a tight budget this may not be the best destination.
Although Tokyo may seem really crowded, its people are surprisingly kind and considerate. You’ll see how clean the sidewalks are, and how people won’t push and shove in the metro. Everything is organized. But don’t be tricked by this – as polite as Japanese people may be, there’s a wild side in them – lots of dancing, drinking, and partying all night long. For many foreigners the Roppongi district in Tokyo is the center of night life and, while this is probably the most welcoming area for tourists you’ll find plenty of other nightlife spots around the city.
One of the unique characteristics of Japan is its “love motels”, hotels for people go to have a great time for one cheap hour. As you can check in in an anonymous way, you won’t feel exposed and you’ll be able to have an enjoyable hour if you meet a new friend.
