A new city to explore today! Finally a day where we are not waking up as early as 4 something, but at 5 something instead to take turns for shower. We went down to the hotel lobby to meet find out our new tour guide for our trip to Vegas. Again, after all the fuss, we found our bus and off we go!
On our way, our scenery changes from the city, the urban areas and then to a desert view. The weather turns hotter and drier as well.
We reached Las Vegas in the afternoon and checked into our hotel for the next 2 days - Circus Circus. One of the happier days as we don't need to pack up our luggage and change hotel everyday like the past 4 nights.
At about 4.30pm, we started our journey by taking an Uber ride to our first destination - Fremont Street. Fremont Street is the Old Vegas as this was where Las Vegas was founded. When we arrived, it was still early so the neon lights were not switched on yet.

|She's so lucky! She's a Star!|
Took our photo with US$ 1 million and had our photos printed on the spot in Binion's.
US$0.99 margarita which no longer exist. It's now US$1.99!
Looked for the world's largest golden nugget.
Hunted for the cowboy neon sign of Vegas Vic.
In the meantime, Fremont Street has become more and more happening as it gets darker. There's the Viva Vision Light Show which has a 550,000-watt speaker system at the top.
Pretty ladies and *ahem* gentlemen strutting and dancing around in sexy outfits.
|We tried to book tickets to Celine Dion's concert in Caesar Palace, but there were no shows during our visit|

We went to watch the free Volcano Eruption show located in front of The Mirage Hotel.

The tour dropped us at the entrance. Those who were taking the helicopter and plane ride would register at the counter. For those who were taking Bus 11 (11 as in our own legs), once we got our ticket, we queued for the free shuttle to our first stop.
Our first stop is Eagle Point. The view was spectacular. It reminded me that the world is so big and there's so many places that I have yet to explore. A self reminder to work hard and earn more money!
After Grand Canyon, our next itinerary was to visit Hoover Dam, which was along the way back but located in another state - Nevada! Our tour bus dropped us at the bottom of the hill and we had a little hike up before we reached the Hoover Dam Bypass.
We walked around and drooled over the branded goods inside the hotel. And also to admire the beautiful decos all around the hotel.
|Random fake tree with red leaves|
|Shine my shoe?|
|Randomly walked into a super fancy toilet|
|Right outside the theatre was the US$28million statue of Popeye|

We did walked around for awhile before we call it a day! And I found Ellen Slot Machine! Was hoping suddenly Jeannie appear and gave me tickets to 12 days of Christmas, but it did not happen! LOL
