It is easy to keep oneself entertained just strolling along the Strip ~ look at gondoliers on the canals at the Venetian, saunter across the Brooklyn Bridge at New York, grasp the pyramids at the Luxor, stop over at the enclosed botanical gardens at the Bellagio, check out the antique neon on Fremont Street or strike a pose by the Las Vegas sign. That said, no one can do entertainment better than Vegas and you will find some of the best acts in the world here.
It is a great idea to book tickets with your accommodation as it can work outcheaper. Vegas is famous for its shows, whether that’s Cirque du Soleil or big-name music performers like Britney.
As the foremost lasting Cirque du Soleil production in Las Vegas, it positively doesn’t disappoint! This show focuses on acrobatics: powerful, peppy and astonishing, together with some spontaneous Chaplin comedy.
If you are up for a fun show, Mystere should be your top choice.
The Grand Canyon
Papillon, a select charter company with around 48 aircraft in their fleet. They run the airport terminal in Boulder City and it’s a superlative experience. Papillon is the oldest and major sightseeing company in the world, presenting over 40 exclusive adventure jaunts and focusing on the Grand Canyon experience overall.
The mob and Vegas are knotted together and a delightful and very detailed museum narrates the history of the two at the very interesting Mob museum.
Now, this casino boneyard lets you explore, featuring tons of signs, a park and guided tours of their collection.
Sketchy bars, casinos, inexpensive drinks and more of a New Orleans Bourbon Street vibe. It’s a great zone for entertainment, people-watching, inexpensive slots and a more laid-back atmosphere.
One of my favourite spots, Shark Reef Aquarium is a mustsee. Shark Reef tunnel, which is intended to look like a recessed antique shipwreck, permits you to come face to face with all types of sharks, sawfish, giant rays, vanishing green sea turtles and sporadic golden crocodiles. Tickets cost 20 dollars for the tunnel, located in Mandalay Bay Resort.
Eat, eat and eat
Las Vegas has some of the best food in the world. The restaurants include Lago at the Bellagio for Italian, Bacchanal at Caesars Palace for the best buffet in town, Jean George’s steakhouse at Aria Resort and Casino for the most superlative Tomahawk ever, Otto at the Grand Canal shops area at the Venetian for the best Pizza Margherita in town and The Other Room inside the Forum shops at Caesar Palace for just chilling out with some great cocktails and the best tacos of my life!
Top of the world
LINQ, a shopping and entertainment quarter between the Flamingo and The Quad. At 550 feet tall it’s the creation’s highest Ferris wheel, captivating 30 minutes to do a complete rotation.
Best Way to Reach: Fly Emirates and don’t forget to carry your priority pass so you can rest in the lounges, especially on the way back home for a break in Dubai.
Best Place to Stay: Planet Hollywood, great location and great facilities. Also houses the Miracle Mile shops.
Travelling Around: It’s easy to get around the Strip on foot, but distances are more than they look, so grab a bus pass, a private taxi or just Uber around!
