The Radar: Free Flights to Japan, Most Dangerous Destinations, Belizean Music

  • Japan Tourism is giving away 10,000 free roundtrip tickets in an attempt to boost visitation to the country which has seen a decline in tourism since the devastating earthquake and tsunami that hit back in March. The agency will award roundtrip tickets to travelers who fill out an application detailing their travel plans and what they want to get out of the trip. Winners would be required to write a review of their travel experiences and post it online. [ABC News]
  • Avoid war zones, drug trafficking, and muggings by steering clear of the world’s most dangerous destinations. [BootsnAll]
  • Sounds of drums, guitars, and harps can be heard throughout Belizean music, which ranges from energetic dances to soulful, steady melodies.  [Matador Network]

    I WOULD LIKE TO BE UP-DATED WHEN JAPAN IS GOING TO START GIVING AWAY FREE AIR ROUND-TRIP TICKETS NEXT YEAR. IT IS GOING TO BE AN OPPORTUNITY FOR ME EVEN THOUGH I HAVE BEEN TO SOME EUROPEAN COUNTRIES.
