Las Vegas-The Entertainment Capital of the World

Slot Machines, Las Vegas
The moment you are out of the aircraft at McCarran Airport in Las Vegas you are greeted with the sight of rows of  slot machines with brightly colored screens ,one arm in the sky, inviting you to try your luck. I think it is all about creating the state of the mind and letting you realise that you are on holiday at the "Entertainment Capital of the World" . Las Vegas is a top destination among the places to travel and has several tourist places in and around it.
Hotel Paris,Las Vegas
Paris Las Vegas is a hotel and casino located on the Las Vegas Strip in Paradise, NevadaUSA, that is owned and operated by Caesars Entertainment Corp.. As its name suggests, its theme is the city of Paris in France; it includes a half scale replica of the Eiffel Tower, a sign in the shape of the Montgolfier balloon, a two-thirds size Arc de Triomphe and a replica of La Fontaine des Mers.The front of the hotel is modeled on the Paris Opera House and the Louvre. The Eiffer Tower was initially planned to be a full size replica but the airport authorities did not allow it.Also the back legs of the Eiffel Tower are actually inside the main gambling area.

 The  massive front area of the Paris has the Casino Games /Bars/Live Entertainment etc and the rooms  at the back of the 24 Acre area. The gaming area at the Paris looks the same all 24 hours of the day with Stars twinkling in the artificial sky and the Moon also moving around.There is hectic activity going on all 24 hours. Tourists/vacationers  decide not to sleep at all once they are in Vegas. They do not want to miss a second of the fun and also I believe that lack of sleep makes people reckless and optimistic. Of the many games available , the Roulette and  the Slot machines were the most popular.When you bet on one number in roulette the return is 36 times. Both these games do not require any strategizing /observation/skill and are relaxing, enjoyable and pure fun.

In addition to Pairs there are several more Hotels in Las Vegas on the strip each competeting with the other for drawing the crowds by having different themes, architecture, decorations like fountains  and statues etc. The popular  Hotel Casinos  are Bellagio, Venetian, Planet Hollywood, MGM Grand, Pallazzo, Ceasar's Palace many more in the 7 KM long STRIP of Las Vegas. Each one of them has its own original theme and characteristic attraction.

LasVegas started off as a center for  Adult Entertainment  and accordingly in the eveining there are various shows held at different Casinos . We went to the Jubilee at Bally's the first night . It was a stunning show with 90 performers -including 50 topless dancers-going through 7 acts ,one of which was the Titanic . The second night we went to the Le Reve which was at the Wynn and was about a dream sequence enacted by about 100 performers in a pool of water with some suspended in the air and others under the water. It was equally stunning especially the agility and strength of the performers.

 Las Vegas has some excellent  Indian restaurants and the first day we tried the Namaste which serves both North Indian and South Indian cuisine. On the second day we tried the Tamba which was also excellent.Tamba means copper and there was a lot of copper in the form of plates,cutlery, decorations etc.
