What to do when in Las Vegas !!

Viva Las Vegas!

Vegas looks the way you'd imagine the way heaven looks at night - Chuck Palahniuk

If you ever visit US, Las Vegas should be on your list.. This is one place you can't afford to miss. The city is alive throughout the night - a magnificent marvel right in the middle of a desert.

Just like the most of us, we were also lured to Vegas from the numerous movies that we have seen be it Dustin Hoffman in Rainman' or a group of students giving the casinos a run for their money in '21' or Bradley Cooper & Co running crazy in The Hangover series. We were in the US for only 2 weeks but had no doubts about squeezing Vegas in our itinerary for only weekend we had.

Accommodation -

There are numerous options in Vegas for accommodation - Luxury to midsized Hotels or even Airbnb which has quite a lot of options. The best place for accommodation would be on the Las Vegas Strip irrespective of the Hotel as you can avail public transport - Use Deuce Bus which has a 24 hour pass for $6-8. The premium options would be The Bellagio, Caesars Palace, Paris or MGM Grand. One can also avail relatively less expensive options like Excalibur, Cosmopolitan or Circus. Before booking, please check sites like groupon or priceline for the best deals.

Note: There is an additional Resort fee that is charged by every hotel and varies. At the Bellagio it is around $44 per night.

Transportation -

When you land at Las Vegas, you can opt for Shuttles from the Airport to your hotel (with an option for return transportation as well). You will have to pay upfront at the counters outside the airport and call them when you want them to pick you up from your hotel for the return flight. The other option would be book Uber or Lyft.

On the strip you can avail Deuce Bus service for Casino/Hotel Hopping for around $6-8. Or just walk if you are into that sort of thing. There is another Bus service which takes you directly to Airport (Route 108).

What to do inside the hotels -

Each hotel is known for something unique but one thing that is common is Casinos. You can enter any hotel and start playing at any table but there is a minimum bet limit. The graveyard shift 4am-12pm is when usually the minimum bets are very low. So if you want to play small, that's the time.

Apart from Casinos, there are lots of options to do shopping - all the luxury brands are available. There are multiple restaurants in each of these hotels which you can try.

We chose Bellagio for our 2 night stay at Vegas. The fountains at Bellagio are known to be one of most watched spectacle in Vegas is one of the reasons which made us choose it in the first place. The check-in process is cumbersome with a huge queue. In every room, specially the ones facing the fountains, one can view the fountains and switch on the TV where one of channels has the music playing which is in sync with the fountains.

Although we received a credit line for $100 for food at the famous Bellagio buffet yet we decided to get it customized to get a $100 credit line across any restaurant in Bellagio and it was a pretty good decision. One thing to be careful about is the Mini-bar usage. All the mini-bar items are placed on pressure-sensitive plates; even if one item is dislodged from its place, the hotel charges the room for that item.

The Venetian is another attraction on the Vegas Strip which has Venice based theme. One should try the Gondola ride - you have two of them one is inside the hotel and the other one is outside the hotel. Madame Tussauds is another attraction at The Venetian.

Paris, Las Vegas has a replica of The Eiffel Tower which is visible from the fountain view rooms at Bellagio (see the title photo). One can book a ride up the Eiffel Tower and have a eye view on the entire Las Vegas Strip which is just breathtaking.

For those seeking adventure, there are rides in Stratosphere and New York hotels (there is a Statue of Liberty replica just outside the hotel).

Where to eat -

All the hotels have many restaurants where you can indulge. Apart from that there are multiple restaurants across the entire Vegas Strip and beyond. One can use tripadvisor app to search for restaurants based on the preference of cuisine. We had searched for Indian cuisine in Vegas - many options within 20 mins from the Strip.

Just near Paris, Hotel you have a group of interlinking outlets including Starbucks, Subway and even Ben & Jenny's ice cream parlor.

You will have to shell out money to get a bottle of water. It would be better to get bottles of water at Walgreens, GNC or any other retail outlet on the strip. Other option to get free alcohol drinks is to gamble at the casino - everyone is provided with unlimited drinks.

What else you can do on the Vegas strip and beyond -

While every hotel has something unique to offer, there are a lot of high-profile events that happen in Vegas. Even the Mayweather-Mcgregor boxing bout was also hosted at Vegas. Every now and then there are many celebrities - Singers, magicians, musicians or stand-up comedians who come down to this paradise amidst the desert of Nevada to mesmerize the crowd.

One can purchase the tickets to these events online or even check out the deals on Groupon. The other option would be to check out the kiosks outside the hotels to get an awesome last minute deal as well.

Take the Deuce bus to Fremont Street to experience the old Vegas. It is alive even in the wee hours of the morning. A photo at the Las Vegas Boulevard - 'Welcome to Las Vegas' board is something worth doing - preferably in early morning during sunrise.

A helicopter ride above the Las Vegas strip is an awesome experience one should not miss. One can do the ride during the day or even at night - Night flight would be something you can never forget.

Two of the most sought after attractions outside the Las Vegas strip are trips to the Hoover Dam and the Grand Canyon. A trip to the Hoover Dam would be for 2-3 hours while that to the Grand Canyon would last for around 5-6 hours. For both these attractions, helicopter rides are also available.

What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas -

This is strictly for adults. There are many Gentlemen's & Ladies clubs (Rhino's, Sapphire, etc. ) Which are open throughout the day. You can call them for a free limousine pick up from your hotel but remember you will have to tip the driver. There is an admission charge to enter the Club and alcohol would be extra. The trip back to hotel would have to arranged on your own.

Finally, the sad journey back -

The Checkout..

The 3 days spent at Vegas were not enough and the city kept tempting us asking us not to leave.. But sadly we had to but not without a promise to ourselves that we will be back to this paradise in the middle of nowhere.

There are electronic slot machines at the Las Vegas airport as well to make sure you end up losing a few more bucks just before you board the flight.

In love with Vegas

Common perception about Vegas is that it's a destination for gamblers and people out for fun. My wife & I went here in the peak of winter with temperatures dropping to 3 degrees Celsius at night. We wandered along the strip fully bundled up till 2 in the morning. The glamour and opulence of the hotels on the strip was a perfect setting for a romantic walk. Unfortunately we could spend only 1 night in this fantastic city.

A great place for winding up and entertaining

There is no need to introduce Las Vegas, the heaven on earth. Chose the right time of the year to be there. Great food and drink options, variety of shows everywhere and many Casinos to check your gambling skills and luck. Just walking by the famous Las Vegas strip itself is so pleasing and refreshing. My trip was shorter and I wished there were few more days there to enjoy all the goodies!

Vegas- A solo traveller's paradise

The best place I have travelled to solo is Las Vegas What was originally supposed to be a 3 days trip ended up being almost a week long. Staying on the strip is the best option as it saves you time and money (cab/traffic). There were amazing deals on a lot. Of good hotels on the strip. Reasonable and cheap. Things to do in Vegas:. 1. Gamble:. Vegas is a gambler's haven. Even if you are inexperienced, you should still definitely try and give gambling a shot. The options vary from a dollar slot machines to high stakes poker. Let loose and may the Gambling gods be with you. 2. Party:. World class clubs and a beautiful crowd. Artists like Skrillex, Calvin Harris, Steve Aoki, Marian Carey play regularly here. Best places to party at would be Hakkasan at MGM or XS. The pool parties are a must do too . 3. Watch a show:. Vegas is famous for its Cirque du Soleil shows. There is something for all of us. Comedy shows to acrobatic shows to adult shows, every body can go get a taste of it. 4. Buffet:. The hotels in Vegas offer a lot of buffets. Buffets in Vegas are amazing. Most of the hotels offer them on all days for lunch and dinner and on some days there are Champagne brunches too. 5. Downtown/ Fremont street:. Also known as Old Las Vegas, this place is a treat. Nestled away from the bustling Vegas strip this place gives you amazing vibes. Old and charming, Fremont street has the world's largest projection screen as its roof and a lot of gigs and concerts happen there on a regular. A lot of smaller casinos and bars make for a great evening.
