Las Vegas, a grand metropolis of the gambling world is a mirage in the desert and with hotel casinos that are crowded day and night.
There’s the Luxor Hotel that was built at a cost of 400 million dollars and contains 2,526 rooms and an atrium that can accommodate nine jumbo jets. This is in stark contrast to the Excalibur Hotel that evokes King Arthur and his Round Table.
Even the New York skyline is on full view and features Greenwich Village, the Brooklyn Bridge and the Statue of Liberty and a screeching roller coaster ride above the residential quarters of New York!
The exclusive Romanesque Caesar’s Palace contains some of the finest and most elegant shops in the United States that epitomize the height of luxury, whereas the Mirage Hotel is set in a rocky landscape with waterfalls and lagoons and after sunset huge volcanoes erupt with a great rumbling and spew flames 30 metres into the air.
No visit to Las Vegas is complete without a helicopter flight, as it gives a full perspective of the fantastic ocean of flashing neon lights below and usually makes for the Stratosphere Tower and circles around it at breathtaking angles.
Las Vegas, there’s a lot more to it than this, including Treasure Island and regular battles between pirates and the English fleet. This city is like a huge multi-billion dollar film set where illusion and entertainment know no bounds.
