If you like your nights framed in luminous neon, Las Vegas beckons! Court the favours of Lady Luck amidst the glitz of The Strip which includes The Stratosphere (tallest free-standing observation tower in the US), a man-made beach at Mandalay Bay, the Bellagio Fountains, the Eiffel Tower at Paris Hotel, the pyramid and sphinx at The Luxor and The Venetian's Grand Canal with gondola rides. The Mirage Hotel displays a man-made volcano ejecting fireballs into the sky to the sounds of The Grateful Dead. See kitschy replicas of New York icons like the Statue of Liberty, the Empire State Building and the Brooklyn Bridge. Don’t miss the historic Hoover Damn on Lake Mead, the largest reservoir in the US which has helped provide power to Nevada, Arizona and California for nearly 100 years. Have your head turned at the acrobatic marvel that is Cirque du Soleil, and take a breather at the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area. Behold the darker side of the city at The Mob Museum and dive into the history of the neon lights framing Sin City at the Neon Museum.
Useful Tips for Tourists Flying to Las Vegas
Where to shop
It is no wonder that the world’s glitz capital spoils shoppers for choice. Shopping areas of epic, mind-boggling proportions include Bonanza, Cosmopolitan, Crystals and CityCenter, Forum Shops (with a faux Roman vibe) and Gamblers General Store. Dedicated smokers can pick up hand-rolled daily in-house cigars that use Cuban-seed tobacco imported from Ecuador and the Dominican Republic.
What to eat
When at Las Vegas, eat. The city that draws millionaires from all over the world has some of the best restaurants in existence. From seafood to desserts to ramen, there is nothing you cannot find. If you are splurging, try Restaurant Guy Savoy (premier French cuisine) or Picasso (a restaurant with original work by the Spanish master on the walls). For budget-conscious wallets, there’s empanadas at El Dorado Cantina, Garlic Churrasco at Via Brasil, croissant french toast at Farm 24-7 and buldogis at Angry Kimchi – all under ten dollars.
