USA – Las Vegas; The City that never sleeps (4)

Hi!! Sorry for the late posting. Been busy with work and traveling again (biz and not personal).

Anyway, glad that you are still following me on this series of mine in USA – Las Vegas.

Where was I? Oh yes. I am still walking down The Strip.

These were my very brief stops at the Las Vegas Hotel Casinos along the way.

Practically to many to really go in and explore unless I am there for more days else, with just less than 8 hrs, I rather explore the whole street and see what’s to offer and maybe… maybe the next time when I am in Las Vegas, I will definitely stay longer and explore more of Las Vegas.

Hey.. wait on.. I have not finish yet on this series. Stay tune for my next posting. =P

USA – Las Vegas; The City that never sleeps (2)

Hi there!! Thanks for still following me on my e-trip in Las Vegas. Hope you  enjoyed my earlier series to Grand Canyon.

The posting before was a view at night with all the neon lights but the in the day time, it is totally another sight to behold.

I stayed in one of those cheap drive-in wedding motel (although it is not that cheap) as I just needed a place for shower and a short nap as my trip here was just 2 days and a night.

Right after checking out the motel, I walked along the street where I stayed and saw lots of little chapels where you could just jam in and get yourself married. Yup, just like what  you see in the movies. These was one of them although I  did not enter any of them.

After that, I thought to myself, why not take the bus up to the end of the Strip using the 24hr pass which I bought a few hours earlier ago.

So, at the last stop that I got down on the strip before backtracking back by foot was the Luxor Hotel and Casino.

Walking down the Strip (Las Vegas Boulevard), I passed Excalibur Hotel and Casino.Very colourful….

Had to take this shot. =)

Looking back at a distance, I felt I was in Egypt with the pyramid in the background and Great Sphinx of Giza or was I??

Took a quick walk inside the Luxor Hotel & Casino. Hmmm… what this? Anyone’s guess?

Out and back on the Strip, I was passing New York New York Hotel & Casino. Yes, They have roller coaster line there too.

Facing the front of NY NY Hotel & Casino was MGM Grand Hotel and Casino. Nothing special about this.

Walking down, I saw a row of nice buildings structure like you are in NY.

Hi!! Hope you enjoyed my earlier series on my day trip to Grand Canyon. If you have missed it, you can drop in and have read; USA – Spectacular view of Grand Canyon

Well this is the continuation from my Grand Canyon trip back to Las Vegas. By the time I reached LV, it was already close to 8pm plus.

The tour bus dropped me back at my motel and I headed straight to Fermont  street as I wanted to catch the Light and Sound show which illuminates the 1,400 feet long Space Frame. This space is 90 feet in height along Fremont Street from Main Street to Fourth Street and has created a spectacular foyer for the existing resorts.

Well you can’t tell anyone that you been to Las Vegas unless you have been to the Strip or Las Vegas strip which is the Las Vegas Boulevard. In fact Las Vegas bills itself as The Entertainment Capital of the World, and is famous for its mega casino–hotels and associated entertainments.

Since 24 hour  pass to all RTC Residential Routes, Strip & Downtown Express (SDX) and Deuce on the Strip. Now it’s USD8 (cant remember how much was it back then). Got into one, paid and took the ride till nearly the end of the Strip. Got down at the NY/NY Hotel & Casino.

It was still busy and so brightly lighted up at 10 pm. Could feel the heat from all the neon lights even the weather was a quite cool.

As usual I would stroll down the strip in direction I came from; back tracking.

What a sight! Even they had the ‘Statue of Liberty’  in Las Vegas.

Eiffel Tower !! Do you think I can get to the top of this in Las Vegas?’This is the Paris Hotel & Casino.

Maybe not but I got under it instead. =)
