Tim and I flew Virgin Airways from LA to Vegas and booked our stay at the Luxor Hotel (Pyramid Hotel). Although it is an old hotel; it is well maintained and it’s not far away from the centre of Vegas Boulevard.
The night we landed, Tim and I got dressed and walked to MGM hotel to witness the one and only DAVID COPPERFIELD. We really had a great time. Luxor had Chris Angel as their performer and exhibited human bodies and Titanic items but we didn’t manage to do any since we were flying to Arizona the next day.
We managed to visit numerous hotels at the Boulevard and of course we spent most of our time in the Bellagio where Ocean’s Eleven was filmed. I went all fanatic telling Tim ‘that’s where the team stood to watch the fountain’ and ‘that’s the stairs Julia Roberts walked down while George Clooney and Andy Garcia waited’. Anyway moving on lol we later took a taxi and visited the old Vegas where we paid $16 each for dinner buffet and bought souvenirs for friends and families and saw butt naked Cowboys and butt naked Native Americans.
The highlight of the trip was a homeless guy who had a bucket in front of him with a small sign sayin’ “Tip Me to Activate Me” and some random dude tipped him and he just danced like a maniac and started shaking his bum. It was funny to watch.
It was pass midnight and we decided to watch Taken 3 at a dodgy theatre. The place was empty and barely any of lights were on. The guy at the counter looked extremely high, although the whole thing seemed dodgy and weird; we still bought our tickets and watched the movie. Nearing the end of the movie, we started hearing noises and doors locking so when the movie was over and we were leaving, we noticed the lights were off and the emergency lights were on and the main entrance was locked and smelled funny. Don’t worry nothing happened, we just managed to get out from the emergency exit which was challenging to find.
VEGAS IS JUST AWESOME AND TRULY IS THE SIN CITY
Whatever happens in Vegas SHOULD stay in Vegas…So this is what I can legitimately blog about our trip LOL
