Wonderful Vacation in Las Vegas

Las Vegas vacation is over! It happened twice and I am glad that I was there for the second time! It has been my dream to visit this famous entertainment city in the United States and I am happy and contented when it did finally came true.

Las Vegas has been the dream destination of many guests and tourists from around the world. Being nicknamed as the Entertainment Capital of the World, there are really a lot of things that will entertain you there. From concerts to musical shows, events, bars, discos, games, museums, rides, circus show, and more.  Just name it and you can have everything in Las Vegas.

Las Vegas Strip during my second visit last 2012.
 If you are visiting Las Vegas, you will feel like you are touring around the world. For example, if you are in Caesars Palace, you will feel like visiting Rome. Luxor Las Vegas will make you feel like you are in ancient Thebes, now Luxor in Egypt due to its architecture. Another great hotel resort is MGM Grand where you can experience a lot including the famous Cirque du Soleil.

I had a wonderful time when I was in Las Vegas. I did not only had a bonding with my siblings but also enjoyed the many entertainments I experience there. I also met once again my good friends and had fun with them.

More on that, I love watching the free shows in Las Vegas including the Dancing Fountain in Bellagio, the Pirates of the Caribbean in Treasure Island or TI and the Volcano at the Mirage.

Some of my favorite hotels where I always go for a walk or window shopping are MGM Grand, Aria, New York New York, Monte Carlo, Planet Hollywood, the Venetian, Paris and more.

I wish to go back there again in the future. I am missing Las Vegas and my siblings there.

Foot Massage at Chinatown, Las Vegas

Yes, I always love to reminisce previous travels. One of it is Las   Vegas! I always have fun in this city. Besides some of my siblings are living there. One day, I and my sister decided to go to Chinatown. As far as I can remember, we went there to buy a simcard for my Iphone which we really did. After doing it, we proceeded to the Chinatown Outlet where you can  have a foot spa. I guess we paid around $80 for a 30 minutes spa. I am not really into it but its fine to have an experience about it.

The Musical Fountain of Bellagio

The Fountains of Bellagio in Las Vegas.
Are you visiting Las Vegas? If you do, don't miss the famous free show in front of Bellagio. The so-called Fountains of Bellagio is a choreographed water feature with performances set to light and music.

I always love watching this spectacular show when I visit Las Vegas. I am always amazed everytime I watch it.

There are a lot of shows and entertainments to see and enjoy in this city. You also witness live performers on the street. If you cross this bridge between Caesars Palace and Bellagio, you can see a lot of singers performing live on their own. I guess some got their relic guitars at Musicians friend. I give some tips sometimes especially when I see that the singer performing has really great voice.

Visiting Las Vegas is truly an enjoyable one considering all the entertainments you can experience there. I believed I am one of the lucky ones who was able to visit the "World's Gaming and Entertainment Capital." Not only once but for the second time already. I love Las Vegas!

The Fashion Show Mall in Las Vegas

Have you been to Las Vegas? If you love shoppping, I believed you this  is the perfect place for you to go in Vegas. It is located in Las Vegas Strip in Paradise, Nevada. It is also one of the largest enclosed malls worldwide with over 250 stores.

I remember going there with some friends. One friend who was visiting frrom Iowa, wanted to go to Zara store inside Fashion Show Mall. We've been going around the store and this friend from Iowa were trying to try some clothes but she can't find her right size. I guess she is just to small and no adult sire could fit her.

The highlights  of this mall  is its, elevated stage, a fashion runaway and The Cloud. You can find branded and signature stores inside this mall. I guess it is up for you to find out if you visit  Vegas in the future. For sure, you will have fun shopping there!

The Cloud in Fashion Show Mall in Las Vegas Strip. I love this place!

I Love The Fountains of Bellagio

This is one of the shows  I love in Las Vegas, the Fountains of Bellagio. It is located in front of the Bellagio Hotel and you can watch it for free. It is visible from the street and you can watch it in any neighboring structures. The shows takes place every 30 minutes in the afternoons and early evenings. Starting 8:00 P.M. to midnight, it starts every 15 minutes.

Don't miss watching it when you are in Las Vegas.

The Stratosphere Tower in Las Vegas

Are you visiting Las Vegas? I just did and just came back home in Europe two weeks ago. During my first visit in this city last 2008, I did not have the chance to go up there.  During my second visit, I finally went  up there. I was so happy and contented.

Stratosphere is a tower, a hotel and entertainment place located in Las Vegas Boulevard.  This tower is the tallest observation tower and the tallest structure in Las Vegas.  It is also the 9th tallest free standing structure in the United States. Its  current height is 1,149 ft  or 350 m.

Its attractions include The Big Shot, Insanity the Ride, and the SkyJump Las Vegas.

On top of the tower, you can have a fantastic 360 degrees view   of Las Vegas. I truly enjoyed my visit there! Cheers!

Things I love in Las Vegas

Las Vegas is the dream destination of millions of tourists worldwide. Do you think I am lucky enough to spend a two months vacation in the "World's Entertainment Capital"? I believed I am and I truly had a fabulous time in Las Vegas.

The amazing Fountains of Bellagio.

I love watching the Fountains of Bellagio when I was there. This is always a spectacular show for me. The choreographed water feature with performances set to light and music are truly fantastic. The show takes place every 30 minutes in the afternoons and early evenings, and every 15 minutes from 8 pm to midnight. The best thing I love, it is a free show. I hope to see it again this year.

I love gallivanting in Caesars Palace. This is one of my fave hotels where I always go roaming around. If I get hungry, there are restaurants inside. I never get bored because I can go window shopping in its Forum Shops. And yes, I love taking pictures in all of its corners.

Fremont Street Experience was great! This is one of places you need to experience when you are in Las Vegas. It is a pedestrian mall and attraction downtown in this city. If I am not mistaken, its LED display canopy is the biggest around the world. There are free shows like live bands every night in this street. I love it there!
The Fremont Street Experience with its LED canopy. I was there!
Visit to the different world class hotels. There are a lot of interesting themed hotels in Las Vegas. For example, if you want to experience Luxor in Egypt, go visit Luxor Hotel or maybe The Venetian hotel to feel the atmosphere of Venice, Italy. Paris Hotel will  give you the experience of  being in Paris, France.

The Eiffel Tower in Paris Hotel in Las Vegas.
These are only some of the things I love during my two months vacation in Las Vegas last 2008. That time,  I boarded one of the Delta Air Lines Flights from Munich to MCCarran International Airport and vice versa.

If you are visiting Las Vegas in the future, be sure to plan it ahead. You can always find affordable accommodation that best suit your needs and budget. American Airlines also offers cheap flights there in all seasons of the year. Like what I mentioned, plan your vacation ahead and I know for sure you can  save time and money when doing it.

Fremont Street Experience

Have you been to Las Vegas? Were you able to have fun in Fremont Street Experience. This downtown side of Las Vegas is a must-to-visit when you are there. The FSE is a pedestrian mall and attraction. I remember during our visit when there were bands playing there and bikers' show and you can watch it for free. The sound system was great. I am wondering if they use a
thunderbolt audio interface in FSE.

I was amazed by the LED display "canopy" that runs along the Fremont Street Experience. This is so far the biggest LED canopy I had ever seen with 220 speakers powered by 550,000 watts of amplification. Can you imagine the sounds it is making! It was really cool visiting this side of Vegas. I truly enjoyed my visit there.

If you want to experience something unique in Las Vegas, don't miss to visit Fremont Street Experience. Here I am during my two months vacation in Las Vegas last 2008.

Watching Elton John's Red Piano Concert in Vegas

Watching one of the most famous performers and entertainers in the world is an exciting experience. It is almost four years now since I watched the famous Red Piano Concert of Elton John. It is held inside the Colosseum in Caesars Palace Hotel in Las Vegas Strip, Nevada. Don't ask me guys if Elton John was using a martin guitar in his concert. All I know was, he did performed very well during that concert. I had fun and I truly enjoyed it.

Here is an image taken when we watched that concert last June 2008. I wish to see it again.

Bonding with Sis in Vegas

Time truly pass-by so quickly now. Just last week, I was in Spain and now I am back in Germany. Where is the next?

It was over three years now since I had a bonding with my dearest sister and relatives in Las Vegas. It was a long two months vacation I had there. Now, I am just happy to see the travel photos I took from Vegas. Believe me, I have a thousand photos or two including California.

Last Thursday, I also had the chance to chat and speak with my sister via yahoo messenger. Some of the topics we talked about include medical uniforms, house in the Philippines, travels and about Christmas. She mentioned further that she brought with her some medical uniforms from the Philippines when she had her vacation last May of this year. She is hoping that we will see each other again next year in Las Vegas. I am hoping and praying for it.

Heard about Caesars Palace in Vegas? Here is an image taken during my vacation there last 2008. You feel like being in Rome when you are in Caesars Palace Hotel.

My Top 5 Favorite Hotels in Las Vegas

It is nice to always remember the past vacations we had. One of the most exciting and longest vacation I spent was in Las Vegas. Could you imagine all the fun you will have when visiting the so-called, "Entertainment Capital of the World" and for two months period? Isn't it a real great time? Some people say that if you want to visit different places around the world, go to Las Vegas! I believed I agree with it now.

Special thanks to my sister and her hubby for sponsoring my vacation especially the plane tickets they booked for me at Delta Air Lines Flights online. It was so far the cheapest one they can find in the internet. I truly had a wonderful and fun holiday in this fabulous city of Las Vegas.

Let me introduce to you my Top 5 Fave Hotels in this city.

Caesars Palace- Not really 100% Rome but at least you feel like you are in Rome, Italy because the theme of this luxury hotel is based on Roman Empire. It has five towers, the Augustus, Centurion, Roman, Palace, and Forum and has total of 3,349 rooms.

the lobby of Caesars Palace hotel in Las Vegas strip during my vacation last 2008.

I love gallivanting in this hotel from time to time. This was also my favorite shopping venue with its Forum Shops. This is where I spent most of my shopping escapades when I was in Vegas. I also loved dining here. The highlight of my visit in this hotel was when I witnessed the show of Elton John called, The Red Piano. It was wonderful.

Bally's- This is also one of my favorite hang-outs in Las Vegas. My cousin who is a singer used to perform in a band in this hotel. Everytime their band plays in Bally's, I was also there. I guessed, I only missed their play once.

the adjacent hotels, Paris and Bally's.

One of the signature features of the hotel is the neon lighting wrapped around the covered moving sidewalk that brings guests from Las Vegas Boulevard to the entrance of the casino. It is also noted for its large shopping area. I bought some souvenirs in one of their shops in Ballys. It is also famous for its Jubilee show.

Paris Las Vegas- At the time I spent my vacation in Las Vegas, I haven't been to Paris, France yet. In fact my vacation in Las Vegas is one of my inspirations why I really wanted to travel. Now it is one of my passions.

You can see the replicas of the Eiffel Tower and a two-thirds size Arc de Triomphe, a replica of La Fontaine des Mers, and a 1,200-seat theatre called Le Théâtre des Arts in this luxury hotel. Paris Las Vegas is linked by a promenade to its sister property, the Bally's Las Vegas.

Bellagio- When I think of this hotel, I also think of the amazing Fountains of Bellagio, a large dancing water fountain synchronized to music. It was a very fantastic show and free of charge. Bellagio is home to Cirque du Soleil's aquatic production "O".

dancing water fountain in front of Bellagio. I love this show!

One thing that I love to visit in Bellagio is its Conservatory and Botanical Gardens. I was amazed by the beauty of its flower collections inside. There are five seasonal themes that the Conservatory undergoes: Chinese New Year, Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter. I experienced the spring display last 2008.

Luxor Las Vegas- I might not be able to visit Luxor in Egypt yet but I am happy to see and to experience Luxor in Las Vegas. I just felt like being in Luxor, Egypt too. I was amazed by the architecture of this luxury hotel. It is highly modernized and has contemporary design.

the interior of Luxor with a Sphinx inside.

Luxor Las Vegas has a lot of facilities and attractions. Among the few are, four swimming pools and whirlpool, 29 retail stores, shows like Carrot Top, "Criss Angel - Believe", "Fantasy" and "Menopause the Musical.

I wish to visit Las Vegas again in the future. I want to board with any American Airlines flights in my next visit there. I just want to have an experience flying with this airline company. This time, I will won't only visit Las Vegas but also other cities in the U.S. like New York, Chicago or Phoenix. Someone promised me to witness and to attend their wedding next year.

I also hope in my next visit I can already spend some overnights in any of these hotels.

Was in Bellagio Las Vegas

I had been to some places in Italy but never been to the municipality of Bellagio. But I am very happy because I had the chance to visit Bellagio in Las Vegas. It is a luxury hotel in Las Vegas Strip, Paradise in Nevada. I love especially watching the Water Dancing Show here, also known as the Fountains of Bellagio.

I am happy to know that Bellagio Las Vegas was inspired by the Lake Como resort of Bellagio in Italy. Here is Bellagio Las Vegas during my 2008 vacation there.

I love watching the Fountains of Bellagio!

I was in Planet Hollywood, Las Vegas

One night I went walking alone in the strip of Las Vegas. I decided to go inside Planet Hollywood Hotel and Casino. It is not so far from Ballys Hotel and Casino where my cousin performed almost every night that time. I enjoyed going around inside their shopping mall. I remember visiting Doha, Qatar as I went inside this hotel. It l was really amazing..I had a great night while walking and shopping around! If you are planning for las vegas vacations, there are a lot of luxury hotels and other hotels to choose from . I guess I am lucky to have a family member there.
