There is no denying that Prince Harry’s recent royal antics in Las Vegas made the city a must visit once in your lifetime. I bet many are planning to discard being Vegas virgins in the coming months.
Call it whatever you wish – The Sin City, The Entertainment Capital of The World, The City of Lights, Nevada’s biggest city has something for everyone regardless of age. If you are planning your holiday for the first time, I share with you some tips:
1. Holidays to Las Vegas is an opportunity to gamble. If you are curious how the casino and machines work its magic like you see in the movies, go ahead and try. But gamble responsibly an stick to your limit.
2. Live like royalty with inexpensive, yet splendid hotel rooms. Mandalay Bay and Venetian hotel are currently running great accommodation deals.
3. And dine like a king. Las Vegas, as my sister-in-law describes it, is a place to eat cheap. Every international and asian cuisine you can imagine is served in its most authentic presentation. Fancy the all-day dining? Buffet starts for as low as $20.
4. Let Vegas entertain you on your sit. Watch world-class stage productions – from magicians and hypnotists to burlesque – shows in astounding scale are bountiful all over the city.
5. Take a break from all glitz and do a day trip.Drive to The Hoover Dam, the engineering and architectural wonder of the Thirties. Alternatively, you can visit the Grand Canyon or the much nearer Red Rock Canyon.
6. Indulge in some serious retail therapy. Most casinos have vast shopping malls. In fact, this is probably the only city with six Louis Vuitton shops within a few blocks away from each other.
7. ‘After dark’ activities include clubbing. Caesars Palace’s Pure club has proved a hot ticket of late, luring in some of Hollywood’s brightest and blondest young celebrities. Or book a limo ride. Take a trip all over Las Vegas streets, enjoy the flashing lights. Breathe the glitz and glamour of the city while you sit back on the plush leather seat with pink champagne on hand.
