Yes, i think that you would learn more through a month of travel than a month in the classroom. It helps you apperciate different cultures and different ways of live - which in this ever globalising would is increasingly important. Not sure that travel should be made compulsary though, i don't think every one welcomes new experiences and places with open arms. If you don't have an open mind when you visit a place you are unlikely to learn from it.
