City Breaks

Yup.. quite rightly so I am singing Elvis Presley πŸ™‚

Going to the US and not pay a visit to Las Vegas? That’s a no no!

Arrived in Vegas just after 9pm @ McCarran International Airport

As walking outside the airport, I took a taxi. Just after 9pm and there were about 40 degrees! Christ!

Took about 15 mins to arrive at the hotel

Believe it or not, traffic was quite busy. The ride with the taxi was aprox $30. Guess it was a nightly rate? :/

Arrived at the hotel, took about 20 mins to check in. Queues were massive!

The hotel itself is massive. From reception to lobby area, restaurants, hallway, games area, rooms.etc

For more information about the hotel I stayed at –Β click here

The location was central, didn’t have to use any kind of public transport. Everything was explored by foot.

Vegas is all about entertainment! Daytime you relax,sleep, rest etc. Whilst nighttime you party. Like a party animal! πŸ™‚

Out of the hotel and you can see a bit of Europe. From Paris to Venice, a bit of Greece and the list can go on.

As walking on the Vegas strip, you can see it all:

And why not Vegas have its own Statue of Liberty?

In each hotel you go or building in general, there are slot machines, fruit machines, you name it! Well, it’s Vegas at the end of the day πŸ™‚

Don’t get me wrong, you will still be able to see normal shops for food, souvenirs, etc.

Was quite happy to see 2 shops with my favourite things to enjoy whilst on holiday πŸ˜€

Let’s not forget about the high street shops..

But what really tickled me are the below slippers – I mean, what the *$%@ ? Made me giggle! And yes, that is grass!

Nighttime, we get to see a different Vegas.Β At night it’s all about lights and the wow effect this place can give you..

 

7 things to do in Vegas

Bellagio Fountains

These are on very half hour between 3 pm and 8 pm and every 15 minutes from then until midnight.

A lake in the middle of the desert explodes with 1,214 spritzers shooting water up toΒ 460 feetΒ in the air

And the show is for free – just outside The Bellagio Hotel

 

Cirque Du Soleil – for tickets and available shows click here

Visit Bellagio and MGM Casinos – the most faimous ones

Free entrance (make sure your wallet is prepared!)

 

Experience The Grand Canyon

By helicopter, airplane or coach

I recommend two companies here which I had the chance to collaborate with:

Papillon Group – www.papillon.com and Maverick – www.flymaverick.com

Both companies advised above have different tour packages you can chose from, depending on your preferences πŸ™‚

 

Get married in Vegas

You can say YES in Vegas to your loved one. You will receive a one year marriage certificate.

Plenty of time to change your mind πŸ™‚

 

Freemont Street Experience

Enjoy some live entertainment, zip line tours and be amazed! And all this for free!

 

The High Roller

More like a London Eye observation wheel but in Vegas πŸ™‚

The cost for a single ride during daytime is $25 and during nighttime $35.

You can also go for the express pass for $60. This will allow you to skip the line and have access at any time.

Each ride lasts 30 mins and will offer you a great view of Las Vegas

 

I have enjoyed it so much and can definetely say I will go back!

It’s only a matter of time πŸ™‚

C’ya soon Vegas!
