Next on the travel USA and Canada series, I will be sharing my experiences in Las Vegas. Las Vegas often known simply as Vegas is a resort city famed for its vibrant nightlife, centred around 24 hour casinos and other entertainment options. Its main street and focal point is the Strip, which is just over 4 miles (6.8 km) long. To be honest, Vegas is my least favourite city among all the places I have visited in the US. No offence but I feel Vegas is too commercialized for me. The purpose of my visit was mainly because of the Grand Canyon and Death Valley National Parks – it is easier to reach these two national parks from Vegas. Nonetheless, it was nice to visit for 1-2 days just to see and experience what kind of a city it is. On the plus side though, there are many shows and good restaurants in Vegas.
I took a stroll around the Strip and enjoyed some free shows and architecture.
The Fountains of Bellagio
The Fountains of Bellagio is a vast, choreographed water feature with performance set to light and music. This performance takes place in front of the Bellagio hotel and are visible from numerous vantage points on the Strip, both from the street and neighbouring structures. The show takes place every 30 minutes in the afternoons and early evenings, and every 15 minutes from 8 pm to midnight (Source: Wikipedia). You can read more about the Fountains of Bellagio here.
Nice architecture, man-made waterfalls and fountains
