Travelpeeps, back on track – here we go for the next couple of weeks with a festival of places we have visited…
Lets start with the entertainment city no 1 in the world.
All the parties were born in Vegas – so its time to discover the mother of all partyplaces.
Our Las Vegas trip started in an unforgettable way.
We were planning this Las Vegas trip for more than 6 months ahead.
Our first trip to the United States, to the West coast started with the landing in Vegas after a pretty long flight of about 11 hours. So our first impression after landing is usually the airport and regarding Vegas we can admit:
Vegas airport is huge and clean.
Be aware that when you come from any Middle- or Northern European part with a normal climate, the heat of Vegas can be really a thing.
Vegas is just hot, not only literally.
All is well organized and you can get to the center with a shuttle bus, which costs you around 8 dollars, or a private taxi, which would be around 20 dollars in that case.
It takes around 20 minutes from the airport to the center, depending where your hotel is located and how the traffic is.
Vegas is famous of its huge amazing hotels that each of them has a theme, any kind of theme, which is an exact copy of for example Paris, Rome, Egypt, Venice and many more.
Choosing a hotel in Vegas can be tricky, since all of them are just fantastic. Of course it depends on ones personal taste.
For us we chose Venetian hotel, which just looked so pretty with the canals and outstanding hall way decorated with art and gold.
The elevators were huge and you could hear Vivaldi playing in the elevators as well. The hotel fulfilled all our expectation and it was a perfect start of our Las Vegas trip.
The rooms are big, as most of the rooms in any hotel in Vegas.
Venetian hotel in Vegas offers great shopping as well and not forgetting the casinos.
Nevertheless they are located a bit further from the reception, which makes the check in and check out a bit more comfortable without endless klinging and noise of the money from the casino machines ?
As I already mentioned – Vegas is hot, so you must be prepared for this and not collapse on the street, even though it is great to notice that every store has AC which makes life a bit easier in 40 degree celsius.
Things to do in Vegas
This is a topic of its own of course, since what could you actually expect!
Yes! Our Las Vegas trip included many new experiences.
So far we saw here partying, weddings, gambling, drinking, getting lost, dancing and again getting married.
This city is just a unique world on its own.
Hard to compare, it has a vibrating and pulsing beat – loud, colorful, fancy, trashy, fast, hot – just let yourself go in this extreme place which brings all your senses to overflow.
No doubt that you need to discover everything during the day (as long as you dont spend splendid times at one of the countless amazing hotel pools), but Vegas shows its real face with a beginning of dawn and during the night.
The light is even brighter then, because everything is blinking, shining and carving for your attention.
For many moments I was just standing there and enjoying these endless deep and intense impressions.
No doubt – this place was made for one purpose (next to making money maybe) – to PERFECTLY entertain you.
And as every child know – that what the US guys truly can do the best and with Vegas they made their masterpiece.
Las Vegas trip is certainly something that you could include in your next travelling list.
Tips for your Las Vegas Trip
And for last some facts, tips and impression from Las Vegas trip.
Restaurants are pretty luxurious there, but you can also find some cheap burgers there. For those that search for something healthy or are on a diet must forget it, since you cannot really find anything so healthy and non fat there.
Everything just tastes different – Best time going out is evening hours.
Not so hot anymore and most of the action starts in the evening. During the daytime it is still possible even tho the heat can strike your brain pretty hard, but for the hardcore persons very much welcome. Not for those with hangovers tho.
Las Vegas is not so big.
The strip is pretty long, but that is the main street where all the hotels are located. Probably also the most interesting part of the city. Nevertheless you can find some clubs and bars a bit outside of the center, could also be an option if you are willing to stay a bit longer.
You definitely have top visit most of the hotels in Vegas!
The design of each hotel is maximum what can be done! Everything and even more!
Bellagio fountain with music is a must!
Best Hotels in Vegas
- The mirage.
Fantastic golden fasade. Huge hotel, luxurious, more traditional look.
Definitely the king of the hotels in Vegas. Has amazing stores for shopping and wonderful inner garden. Worth for a visit for everyone.
- Caesar’s Palace.
Outer look just splendid. Roman empire. When you enter the hotel, it is of course full of gamblers. A bit noisy compared to Venetian, since there the atmosphere felt to be a bit more calm and sophisticated.
We stayed there our 4th night on the way back to Europe. Rooms in a great condition. Very modern, beautiful hotel.
- New York New York.
Hotel for New York lovers. No more comments needed
- The Venetian Resort
Our Hotel of choice and an awesome place – big, fancy, always this little extra thing everywhere and very high standard & modernish.
