There is no relatives and friends.
You can't understand the local language.
The culture and environment make you feel unaccustomed
Unless there was a travel warning or a war, yes I would go and make the most of it. If I wanted only places I feel familiar with, I'd stay home.
I went to Malaysia backpacking with no language and not knowing anyone except my wife who I was traveling with. I wasn't too difficult but I wish we would have spent more than two weeks there, which would have given us more time to adjust.
I guess, it depends on a time which I'd have to stay there. Generally, I think - yes. I'd be a great occasion to meet some new people, their culture and learn a language. Besides, it'd impress great memories in my life:)
