Pengalaman ke Las Vegas, Nevada For The First Time : Part 2

Hello April!

How time flies. Now I am back in Alaska where the snow is almost knee high in Spring. All the road trips in the desert officially end. Both Botak and I agree that we no longer has the same feelings on Alaska like we used to. We hope this year will be the last that we have to come back (except for Christmas). Usually people will started to feel depress when its winter. But I already into depression even in Spring.

 

Mungkin sejak lepas beranak, ketahanan tubuh badan tak sama macam dulu. Sejuk dia kali ni menyakitkan. Itu saja aku boleh bagi tahu. Alaska memanglah cantik, tapi seperti mana aku katakan di dalam LIVE video aku di Facebook, Alaska ni kalau datang untuk melancong 3 – 4 minggu ok lah. But to stay more than 3 months – it’s hard. Especially with limited income.

Back to my visit to Las Vegas (Part 2). Like I said on my previous post HERE, Las Vegas is more like a Hotel Hopping Tour for people who don’t gamble and drink. We managed to visit 5 more hotels on day time. Las Vegas to me is like a DisneyWorld for adults. Themed world – checked. Themed souvenir shop – checked. Games and rides – Checked. Costumed characters – checked. If I were here when I was still single and young, it will be photoshoot MADNESS. Believe it or not, 3 trips to Las Vegas plus few other places like Grand Canyon, Hoover Dam, Lake Havasu City, Oatman Arizona, Route 66, etc etc – I only took less than 1000 pictures on my phone for the whole 1 month trip in the desert.

Aku ulang sekali lagi, untuk menjelajah seluruh The Strip Las Vegas, aku suggest naik monorail dia. Every stop will be either right inside or in front of the hotel building. Kalau korang ada sewa kereta pun, parking di Vegas sangat mahal. So lebih baik lah letak je kereta tu dekat hotel parking sahaja dari keluar masuk keluar masuk hotel lain.

Oh did I tell you that Las Vegas also have Ferris Wheel like London Eye? Tapi dekat sini mereka panggil High Roller. $35 for 30 minutes ride. Errr… we skipped it. Haha.

This wheel located right outside Harrah’s Hotel where we stayed.

Jangan risau, train dia tak ramai orang. Ada orang pun tak nak duduk atas seat yang disediakan. LOL.

First hotel kami visit was MGM Grand. Kalau sesiapa follow aku di Facebook, Semua hotel yang aku tulis dekat post ni aku ada buat LIVE Video on Facebook masa 3rd visit.

MGM GRAND

Dalam banyak banyak hotel mahal, Deko lobby MGM ni paling cokia aku rasa.

Dia punya shops dekat dalam pun bosan je aku rasa. Malas nak ambik gambar dekat MGM Grand ni.

Next to MGM Grand is New York New York. Jalan kaki saja lintas ok. Tak perlu naik train.

NEW YORK, NEW YORK

Dalam banyak banyak hotel, aku suka bangunan hotel New York New York ni. Very the New York sangat. Aku belum sampai New York. However, this hotel able to summarize what’s New York in a nutshell gitu. Complete with Roller Coaster ride. Roller Coaster tu memang boleh naik ok. Bukan building decoration semata.

All the famous building like Chrysler, Empire State, Woolworth, Wall Street are in one place, complete with Statue of Liberty.

Tak lupa juga bangunan New York City Hall.

Ada satu corner tu. looks like Times Square pada waktu malam.

Dekat dalam hotel tu semua restaurant yang very American and New York originated macam New York Pizza dan Bagel. Tak ada pulak gambarnya dalam folder 1st visit aku ni. Malas la nak check lagi 2 folder. Hahaha.

A little view of Casino inside New York New York Hotel.

Across New York New York Hotel is Excalibur. Pun just jalan kaki sahaja. No need train rides.

EXCALIBUR

The only hotel that reminds me of real Disney World.

On the inside, it looks like a palace during Medieval era.

Kedai dalam hotel ni pun banyak jual barang macam Games of Throne theme gitu. Ada satu kedai tu nama dia “Dragon Lair”. Aku tak ada ambik gambar tapi ada dalam LIVE video dekat Facebook.

LUXOR HOTEL

Next is Luxor Hotel. Yang mana aku ada buat LIVE update on Facebook secara detail juga. Masa ni aku tak tahu pun yang akan duduk sini on our 3rd visit to Las Vegas. So beria ia la datang sini ambik gambar masa 1st time datang Las Vegas.

Belakang aku tu Monorail rail tau. Memang senang gila tour The Strip pakai Monorail ni. Lepas kami pusing pusing Luxor Hotel, we took the monorail to Paris Hotel. Dari Paris hotel, kami jalan kaki saja balik ke Harrah’s Hotel. Boleh dikatakan Harrah’s is centrally located dan paling murah tak silap aku on The Strip Las Vegas ni.

inside Luxor

For your information, Luxor has 2 types of hotel building. One is inside pyramid itself (above picture) and another building is normal straight building tower. What’s interesting about room in Pyramid is, their lift. Lift nya naik secara condong. Tapi bila berdiri dalam lift tak terasa sangat sebab tak ada cermin untuk lihat keluar. Tapi memang takkan rasa naik menegak.

Jadi lah kan… nak pegi Egypt tengok real The Great Pyramid entah bila. Nasib baik ada Las Vegas, dapat jugak tengok kepala Firaun dekat sini. LOL.

PARIS HOTEL

For those who never been to Paris, this is a chance for you to take picture with Replica Eiffel Tower minus the crowd and pick pocket/ street thieves. Dengar cerita kawan kawan, banyak pick pocket di area Eiffel Tower Paris yang sebenar. betul ke?

Eiffel Tower di Las Vegas ni walau replica, still ada lift ride untuk ke puncak sebenarnya, macam real Eiffel Tower.

Siap ada Arc de Triomphe lagi. Boleh la merasa sikit Paris. Entah bila nak jejak real Kota Paris pun tak tahu…

Inside the hotel and casino.

Paris Hotel was the last hotel we checked out for that day. Masa tu dah pukul 4PM. Kaki penat. Konon nak rehat sekejap balik hotel room and then continue at night with Bellagio and its water fountain. Hhhhmmm… sampai sudah krem satu badan, tak dapat. Aku mengaku lah ok.. sejak lepas beranak ni, (umur pun dah meningkat), kami laki bini memang dah tak kuat menapak macam dulu. I mean, masih boleh menapak, but we unable to do it more than 6 hours straight. Aku tak sure sebab sebelah malam kami tidur terganggu sejak ada anak (Athena tends to wake up at 12 midnight or 2AM for milk, and sometimes she don’t go back to sleep couple of hours after that) atau memang kami dah tak segagah dulu.

I know my visit to Las Vegas for the first time sounded very boring kan. But  actually it is not that bad on my 2nd visit, 2 weeks later. I will blog about it soon. Insyaallah.
