Trip to the Sin City -Vegas

This long weekend we decided to visit the ultimate Sin city Vegas (the name is actually apt for the city ,I realized after visiting it) Casino at every corner, drinks in every hand , people ogling at nude photographs ..open promotion of Sexual pleasures (for both Girls and boys)were the things you would notice as soon as you enter Vegas.
I will have to agree though its a beautiful sin city . Its like Death By Chocolate in literal terms. It might make you commit something which you would not normally do ..but in such a way as you would not realize what you are doing :)

We started our Journey to Las Vegas from Redwood City on Wednesday afternoon, it was a long 10 hours drive. due to heavy traffic  (Thanksgiving Weekend)  we reached our destination at around 1 am .Although we were dead tired and sleepy but as soon as you enter the city , all the glamor and glitter (city was literally glittering in golden lights) will make you sit up and notice. We did the same! awed and wooed  the night life of Vegas. It was like you have entered some different planet where people do not sleep at 1 am. I was enamored by the lighting they did. The way we light up house on Diwali ,make sure that each and every corner is full of light ,it was like they celebrate Diwali and on a grander scale in Vegas every night! Not a single shop or corner was devoid of strings of yellow /red and white bulbs , giving the city a look of newly wed bride decorated in gold !


We had our reservations at the Stratosphere Hotel , which has the tallest tower in the city .As it was already quite late and we were dead tired we went straight up to our beds !

This is Vegas from 107th floor of our Hotel~


 As everyone else visiting THE STRIP (most happening place in Vegas) was priority 1 on our agendas.
Many of the largest hotel, casino and resort properties in the world are located on the Las Vegas Strip. Nineteen of the world's 25 largest hotels are on the Strip.



Each hotel is designed as per theme , themes of famous places like Venice/Paris /new york  etc. We would enter one hotel and exclaim wow its so beautiful, probably its the best in Vegas .. only to be greeted by something more extraordinary.




Venetian was the hotel based on Venice (as the name probably suggests) .As soon as you enter the hotel , it was like you are in different place. There was a canal maintained and there were boats ferrying people from one side to the other, person rowing the boat was singing the traditional songs . On both sides of the canal there were restaurants and shops . It was actually like you are in Venice.



If that has not impressed you enough , you can have dinner at Eiffel tower :)


We visited the famous Bellagio Hotel and saw the famous fountain show. It was really magical . Before I saw the fountain live , I had seen it on Television and I was thinking .'Yeah fine its good!' .But when you actually see it , water dancing as per music , its mesmerizing . Its awesome!




There is glamor all around you and how can a visit to Vegas be over without seeing any shows! We were lucky to be able to see a fab free show "Sirens of TI" at the Treasure island. The show was about live pirates sea battle ! It was about how  the beautiful Sirens of TI®  lure a band of renegade pirates into their cove with powerful and captivating melodies.The clash between the mesmerizing temptresses and their rebel prey transforms this 17th century story into a 21st century revelry of song and dance, seduction and danger.

And last but not the least , I could get good Indian food there :) at a food court in Revieria . Food was awesome and it perfectly made my holiday!

And how could a trip to Vegas end without visiting the Grand Canyon! But the experience and the journey was like a revelation to me , so it deserves a post of its own!
