Las Vegas is truly one of the world’s most exciting cities. From simply a place to gamble legally, it has evolved into a significant, diverse, and attractive destination for people from all over the world. Everyone should experience the glitz and glamour at least once. For at least the following reasons, Las Vegas should be on everyone’s “bucket list:”
1. Over-the-top kitsch and exaggeration at its best are the city’s trademarks.
2. “The Strip” offers an opportunity to visit “Egypt,” “Venice,” “Paris,” “New York City,” and “Southeast Asia” in a single day.
3. The shows, both inside and outside, are all spectacular.
4. The “faux” architecture is absolutely stunning.
