Las Vegas! I stayed here for 11 days/10 nights, a little long but worth it due to the before Christmas hotel sale, a few days after one of my profession’s meetings in December. I was able to explore almost everything, saw 4 Cirque du Soleil shows, at a discount of course, and took full advantage of the 24-hour buffet passes (tried 5 or 6 different world class buffets). To differentiate the Cirque show themes, Criss Angel is about a crude magician, not like Cirque at all, Zarkana is an Italian opera, O is a water show, Mystere is mostly acrobatics, and KA is based on an Asian tale. Of the buffets, my favorite was the Wicked Spoon for its small portions, leaving room for more food. La Village in Paris, the Bellagio Buffet, and Bacchanal in Caesar’s were pretty good too. There are way too many photos and background stories to tag. Unlike Macau, in which everything is more grand, Vegas has plenty more family, and adult activities. Warning: you should probably eat first before reading more… A word of caution, outside the strip, Las Vegas is a poor town and a bit sketchy. Even walking far out from Circus Circus to Stratosphere was pretty shady on foot. Either take the public bus or drive if that trip needs to be made. The same can be said of visiting Fremont street. The entire length of the strip from Mandalay Bay to Stratosphere is around 4 miles (I walked this in 1.5 hours).
