New York Hotel

The second day of my trip i was already 5 cm shorter because we walked so much on the first day in a temperature over 90 fahrenheit. This day needed to be a little more relaxed otherwise, i wouldn't make it until the 1st of May! We got up a little later than the day before, had breakfast and walked the other way of the Strip then the day before. We started at the Luxor. That was a good start. We could reach the hotel by a corridor from The Excallibur to The Luxor and it was also air conditioned! Who wouldn't like that in the heat of Vegas? The Luxor is a beautiful hotel in Egyptian Style. The hotel is actually the shape of a pyramide and there's a sfynx in front of it. Inside the hotel you see some Egyptian villages. I know this sounds strange, but hey, you're reading a Las Vegas blog.

Inside the Luxor Hotel
Everything is strange in Vegas. Wait until you hear what happens in the next hotel. A train brought us from The Luxor to The Mandalay Bay. This is really a luxury hotel. I mean, the Luxor is very nice but The Mandalay Bay is very very fancy. At first, there didn't seem to be something very spectacular in this hotel but it's located in Vegas so there had to be something. And there was something. This hotel has it's own reef with sharks and turtles! And this isn't a small reef. We spent an hour here to see al those different fish and we had some drinks in this hotel after the shark visit. I hoped we could have lunch in one of the restaurants in this hotel because there is a wine rack that is so huge that the waiters have to fasten themselves on a rope, and then have to climb it, to get your bottle of wine.

I would love to see that since i'm a winelover but i could only see the rack from a distance because it was too early, the place was still closed. We decided to take a look at The Hotel, which is very fancy but there's not a lot to see since it's the only hotel on the Strip without a casino and then went back to our hotel to change. We had to dine early that day because we had to be at a show again that night. We had a great dinner at a french restaurant Mon Ami Gabi in the Paris hotel, with a great view on the fountains of the Bellagio hotel. After dinner we went to Ceasars Palace to see the last but one show of sir Elton John in Las Vegas. What a show was that! It was really over the top, the theme was definately Vegas. I suppose some people thought it was a little bit too much. Let me put it this way: It was a show for a mature audience. But of course it was great to be at a show like this in Vegas! Thank you Elton!

Yes that's true, but in The Hotel, next to the Mandalay Bay, there's no casino. There famous because of there restaurant on the roof!
You're right about the nightclubs. It's because of the group we were with that we didn't go clubbing. Next time i'll go with friends!

Mandalay Bay does have a casino in it. They have slots, table games, even poker tournaments. There's also shops and different restaurants. Next time, try to check out the pools and nightclubs. Lots of time and hard work goes into making the clubs look amazing. Even if you aren't into them it's still work it too see them.
