Las Vegas Night Strip Helicopter Tour
casino blog
21 May 2011

Las Vegas Night Strip Helicopter TourTo tour Las Vegas by night in a helicopter, any time of year, is one of the top things to do on your visit to the city.  Tour companies offer spectacular views from six-seater state of the art helicopters.  These jet helicopters are renowned for their excellent manoeuvrability and many passengers have praised them for the smoothness of their flight.  This is an excellent way to see the dazzling Las Vegas Strip and is available between 6pm and 8pm, depending on the time of year.

The flights themselves last around twelve minutes, which may sound comparatively short, but it’s sufficient for you to see all the sights.  You will need to allow around an hour and half for the whole tour, due to loading and unloading plus your special champagne toast before you board.

Departing from the heliport close to the strip, you’ll start by flying past the large pyramid at the Luxor hotel, with its bright light shining up into the night sky.  You’ll see the magical dancing water fountains of the Bellagio and the legendary Caesar’s Palace, which has hosted many sporting events including World Championship Boxing Matches and Formula One Grand Prix.

Walking Tour with Professional Photographer in the Big Apple
casino blog
17 April 2011

Walking Tour with Professional Photographer in the Big AppleThe New York City Walking Tour with Professional Photographer offers an irresistible chance for visitors to explore the city with a photographer as the tour guide. However, not everyone can afford professional cameras and posses the skills of handling them. Traveling with the heavy bulk is not an easy feat either, so most people prefer the handy and lightweight digital cameras which produce pictures of far less quality.

The assigned photographer is charged with the duties of bringing the customers to the famous landmarks around New York City and to offer his photography service when needed. Services can be catered from individual to group tours but not party tours where you walk around with complete strangers. This is certainly a perk to those who prefer to take a stroll to the places at their own pace.

New York City is a big place and it is quite impossible to finish up a tour on foot here. The majority of the tour is concentrated around the Manhattan area such as the Downtown and Midtown Manhattans, where many famous attractions are found. Pictures can be taken overlooking the famous Rockefeller Centre, the busy 5th Avenue and more along the Soho and Greenwich buildings around Downtown Manhattan.

Around the Canyons of Hurricane City
casino blog
15 April 2011

Around the Canyons of Hurricane CityHurricane City in Washington County, Utah is a small city in the western side of the United States. It has a considerably small population of around 10000 persons but the city does maintain a steady growth pattern over the years. The name for the city came about after Erastus Snow, a church official experienced a whirlwind which blew the top off of a buggy that he was in and said: "Well, that was a Hurricane. We’ll name this Hurricane Hill.”

The city had a historic Hurricane Canal to direct the water from Virgin River which had once caused flood around the surrounding areas. A lot of effort was put into the project which spanned over 10 years and with the assistance from the neighbouring Virgin and Grafton areas. Amazingly, the long canal was built using only picks and shovels!

The canal has since been preserved and maintained by the locals since 2000. Visitors can visit the historic site and take a stroll along its steep slopes and many have commented that the steep slope has the effect of making the canal to seem floating in the air. The lime kiln and sandstone kiln to make the cement for the canal can be seen at the side of the narrow canal.

13 April 2011

Get Down with the Beat: New York Hip Hop ToursThe music world is revived with the upbeat tunes of a new genre in late 1970s. This genre has not only brought about new entries into the music scene but has developed a culture of its own, namely hip hop.

The offered tours provide an insight into the basic elements of the hip hop culture; music, dance and art graffiti.

Hush Hip Hop Tours have more varieties of tours to choose from while the Harlem Hip-Hop Tours offer just one type of tour which is the “Hip-Hop On. Hip-Hop Off. Tour”. One thing in common though, the tours by both companies are conducted by hip hop legends whom are sure to provide a lively tour experience to the crowd.You will sure be entertained by the live DJ and emcees throughout the tour.

Meet the Teeth at the Singapore Crocodilarium
casino blog
09 March 2011

Meet the Teeth at the Singapore CrocodilariumSingapore, a seemingly unseen island on the globe stores many wonders to be discovered. One of them would be the Singapore Crocodilarium, located at the south of the island along the East Coast Parkway. Whether you are travelling with family or friends, a visit to this tourist spot is guaranteed to be an eye opener.

The Singapore Crocodilarium may sound like any typical crocodilian farm that you can find around Asia but it is not. In fact, it houses more than 1000 types of reptiles besides crocodiles and is the largest enclosed crocodilian farm in South East Asia. Normal visits usually last about 2 hours and the ticket price is a total steal; only S$2 for adults and S$1 for children.

Walking by the forum area, visitors get to be up close and personal with the crocodilians as they are displayed at a really close range. The workers at the Crocodilarium are familiar with these reptiles and visitors can ask them any questions about these reptiles. Children especially love these scary, wrinkly creatures and there is also a session when visitors are allowed to feed the young.

Top of the Rock Observation Deck, New York
casino blog
09 February 2011

Top of the Rock Observation Deck, New YorkThe Top of the Rock Observation Deck in New York really is just that “Top of the Rock”! The panoramic views of Manhattan cannot be seen like this from anywhere else in New York.  Standing on the 70th floor of the Rockefeller Plaza the Top of the Rock Observation Deck gives the visitor an uninterrupted view of all the major sites of New York.  If you want to see man made landmarks in all of New York’s glory from the Chrysler Building to Times Square and the Statue of Liberty then Top of the Rock is the place to go.

The Observation deck is open 365 days a year from 8 am until midnight, even if you have visited during the day before the night time is a completely new experience.  The illuminations of the surrounding landmarks really come to life and cast a vibrant glow over the whole city, giving it clarity and a sense of surrealism.   Take as many pictures as you like but they will never express the feeling that you get when actually standing on the Top of the Rock personally.

A review of the Ultimate Las Vegas Nightclub Hopping Package
casino blog
18 December 2010

A review of the Ultimate Las Vegas Nightclub Hopping Package The Las Vegas nightclub hopping package is a concise, very handy tool when one is at his own and is visiting for the first time, with little knowledge of the city’s most active night clubs. One can easily book a package on landing at the airport from the booth located right near the baggage collection counter at the check out lounge.

The package is superb value for money as it provides an individual with a number of passes and if one needs to use them all over a weekend, one would need to visit at least 5-6 night clubs every night.

Some clubs also state the specific dates that they are open on, so one can plan in advance on the days that they can be visited. For these, one should not forget to check the terms of his or her Las Vegas nightclub hopping package. The most notable clubs in the package are Lavo, Tryst, Pure, Tao, Ghostbar and Voodoo Lounge.

City Review of Bridgeport, CT
casino blog
30 September 2010

City Review of Bridgeport, CTAlthough it’s a relatively unheralded destination on the world scale, Bridgeport, Connecticut, USA, is one of the most historic and most populated cities in the country. Bridgeport is the core of the Greater Bridgeport area, and is also part of the New York statistical area which includes all five boroughs and even parts of New England.

Unlike many other vacation destinations and famous cities in the United States, Bridgeport doesn’t bring in gamblers, those looking for entertainment, or even really the honeymooner crowd. Bridgeport offers more history than anything, and with famous people like circus promoter P.T. Barnum to its credit, Bridgeport is steeped in the historic.

When Bridgeport was first inhabited, most of its residents were either farmers or fishermen. Its proximity to water and mass of fertile soil made this area very appealing to settlers hoping to carve out their respective niche in the American landscape.

City Review of Austin, Texas
casino blog
06 September 2010

City Review of Austin, TexasDue to its sheer size in nearly everything from food to fashion, Austin, Texas, a prominent city in the United States, has managed to live up to its state’s slogan over the years - everything’s bigger in Texas. For most visitors of the city, they find out this constantly rings true, as a huge list of tourist activities always awaits any vacationer looking to explore this historic city.

Austin is the capital of Texas, located near the center of the southern state, and has been one of America’s fastest-growing cities since 2000. While the rest of the country and much of the world took a huge financial hit during the recent - and still going - recession, cities like Austin managed to avoid the fallout due to a few reasons.

For starters, Austin isn’t heavily regulated by government influence. The lack of red tape via city planners’ overeager interference has left Austin and the rest of Texas free to grow. Texas, as a single state, produces more jobs than the other 49 states, and does so with lower tax rates and more personal freedoms than anywhere else in the entire U.S.

City Review: Paradise, Clark County
casino blog
01 September 2010

City Review: Paradise, Clark CountyWhen you sit around and think about where you want to live, a hot, barren desert is probably going to be near the bottom of the list with the moon and at the bottom of the ocean. However, if Las Vegas were to enter into the equation, the idea of a desert suddenly doesn’t seem so dry. This is undoubtedly what when through many people’s minds as they re-located to Paradise.

Paradise, Nevada is an unincorporated town in Clark County, Nevada, directly outside of Las Vegas. Technically, Paradise is part of Las Vegas, located directly south of Sin City and acting as an urbanized area. The Clark County Commission governs Paradise and the population is near 200,000, making it one of the more populated areas in the county.

Since Paradise is really just south of Las Vegas, there are not a lot of original destinations in the town that are separate from Vegas. Even still, a lot of tourists don’t know much about the entire Vegas area if it doesn’t involve a new-age casino resort or an all-you-can-eat buffet. Unfortunately, some of the country’s best scenery is overshadowed by the gambling.

City Review of Sunrise Manor
casino blog
26 August 2010

One of the biggest downsides to being located so close to Las Vegas, Nevada is that regardless of what is offered as a standalone territory it’s all overshadowed by the world’s biggest gambling Mecca. This has a positive effect on tourism in most cases, as most people travel to the area and find places like Sunrise Manor on their own, but it also results in a serious lack of identity.

Sunrise Manor is a census-designated place on the outskirts of Las Vegas, located within Clark County, Nevada. This means that it’s not technically its own city; it’s just a designed part of Las Vegas. However, if Sunrise Manor were to ever be incorporated, it would become one of the largest cities in the entire state.

Sunrise Manor is currently best known for two things: its immediate proximity to the city of Las Vegas, and its place at the seat of Frenchman Mountain. With a population of almost 200,000, Sunrise Manor is definitely a popular location to live, with plenty of hotels, restaurants, parks and upscale neighborhoods.

City Review: Spring Valley, Clark County
casino blog
18 August 2010

As far as vacationing in the United States, you’d be hard pressed to find any area with more to do than in and around Clark County, Nevada. Not only is this the home of the famous gambling hub Las Vegas, but it’s also one of the world’s most popular vacation destinations for hikers, ATV enthusiasts, sightseers, history buffs, and much, much more.

The city of Spring Valley is located in the center of all the action. Only two miles west of the main Vegas Strip, Spring Valley receives much of the Las Vegas overflow and also its own tourists due to the hotels and restaurants located there for people who don’t want to spend the money for resort stays or who want to see other sites in Nevada.

Spring Valley also contains quite a few middle class to upper class residential neighborhoods and boasts an economy independent of Las Vegas, as evidenced by the nearly 120,000 permanent residents of this small city.

City Review - Saint George's, Grenada
casino blog
14 August 2010

City Review - Saint George's, GrenadaThe Grenadines in the southeastern portion of the Caribbean Sea are perhaps the most beautiful islands in the Northern Atlantic. Grenada is the focal point of the island chain, and is made up of six relatively small islands (much like Hawaii). Grenada is steeped with history and tradition, and the spectacular Caribbean location is a huge draw for tourists.

Saint George’s is the country’s capital city and undoubtedly the most popular of the entire area. Grenada only has a population of around 110,000, and Saint George’s only houses around 8,000 full-time, but millions pass through the streets every year and enjoy the area’s tropical climate, local cuisine and the rich history.

The city’s unique geography originally lent it fame. Grenada, like all these islands, is a volcano that rose from the ocean’s floor and eventually, over many thousands of years, became inhabitable. The volcano on this particular island has collapsed, however, and Saint George’s on Grenada is basically built in and around the crater that was left.

City Review of Winchester, Nevada
casino blog
08 August 2010

Winchester, Nevada is one of the many standalone towns and cities around Las Vegas that have the misfortune of being categorized as simply “Vegas.” That’s not to say that Las Vegas is a bad place, but since postal addresses only recognize Vegas in Clark County, Nevada, some tourists may never find out about locations like Winchester.

The city of Winchester is small in comparison to the rest of the cities in Las Vegas’ metropolitan area. Winchester is located directly south of Vegas and contains much of Sin City’s Strip. As a result, there are hordes of restaurants, motels and other attractions in Winchester that should interest anyone planning on vacationing in the area.

One of the biggest positives of visiting Winchester if you’re also visiting Las Vegas is that you can stay in Winchester and beat some of the traffic on both the roads and in the hotels. Since a lot of vacationers are preoccupied with wanting to stay in luxury resorts, this leaves Winchester’s hotels and motels open and available most of the year.

Brief Guide To The Capital of USA Washington DC
casino blog
02 August 2010

Washington D.C. is the United States of America’s capital city and serves as one of the most popular destinations in the country as far as tourism is concerned. With many museums, federal buildings, hotels and restaurants, the District of Columbia is well equipped to handle millions of tourists every year, and the small federal city in fact thrives on the tourism.

D.C. initially stands out to people because it’s the quintessential “American” city. Although the USA isn’t always the most popular country around the globe, many people are still interested in the country that was essentially birthed of immigrants and rose to prominence as one of the most powerful countries on the planet.

America’s first president, George Washington, selected the small square area that would eventually become Washington D.C. in the late 1700s. Before the federal city was located on the easternmost border of the state of Virginia, it had been located in New York City and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

The bespoke tailoring centre of the world Savile RowSavile Row is a street in Mayfair, London that is basically synonymous with bespoke tailoring. The street, as well as surrounding areas, is riddled with tailor’s shops. Like Little Italy in New York City, Savile Row has become a safe haven for many people with the same interest: tailoring.

Tailors have been filling this area up since the early 19th century, and these artisans have worked extremely hard to build their well-established businesses. These businesses hold both quality and style as their highest standards. And after years of business, Savile Row is known as the place to receive a quality tailored garment.

Savile Row is located on the lands that were once known as the gardens of Burlington House. After London officials decided that it was a time for a change, way back in 1733, construction began on several row houses. Dorothy Savile, wife of the Earl of Burlington, christened the street, thus giving it the name.
