拉斯韦加斯之行

Last Monday was Labor day in America, and it is a public holiday with one day off, which made the weekend a 3-day long one. Yeah, that would be wonderful to plan a vacation, and we chose Las Vegas – the city of gambling

上个星期一是劳动节,有一天假期,连上周末,一共有3天,可以好好计划一下去玩玩了,我们选择了赌城拉斯韦加斯。

 

We booked the hotel “Imperial Palace” one week before and also browsed the show list. There were so many shows daily and only one show attracted us: Celine Dion in “A New Day” at Caesars Palace. The ticket was expensive, 137 bucks each. But guess that it should worth the money, so we booked the tickets immediately on the internet with two-day delivery. However, until one day before setting off, we were informed that the tickets were sold out. What a pity! Never mind, with a full refund and no money spent on the shows, we had a reasonable excuse for good meals. Haha…

早在一个星期前我们就订了酒店,叫做帝国皇宫。节目单很长,每天都有很多节目,可是只有一个节目引人注目,那就是celine dion的演唱会,137美刀,蛮贵的,不过机会难得,就豁出去了,毫不犹豫的在网上买了票,两天送到。不想到了出发的前一天,被告知没票了。好可惜啊!不过没关系,没有花钱看秀,倒是给了俺们饱餐的借口。穆哈哈。。。。。。

 

Before we went there, I had no idea of what the city looks like, and only got a feeling that it is a city of gambling in the desert, a city full of desire. That is true. The city is surrounded by some grassless mountains, and most of the tall buildings are only clustered in the center of the town. But that never discount the flourish of the city. When being inside the city, the various garish designs of the hotels really startled me. It is absolutely fabulous. The hotel owners use all kinds of tricks to attract gamblers. Please refer to the photos below.

 

在去之前,我对该城市一点也不了解,只是觉得就是一座在沙漠里的堵城,一座充满了欲望的都市。的确如此。城市的不远处被几座沙土山包围着,只有几座高楼集中在市中心。但是这一点也不会贬低城市的繁华。当置身城市中间的时候,酒店们的设计震得让人眼花缭乱,赞叹不已。就店主们用尽各种噱头来吸引赌客。照片为证哦。

We are not gamblers, and never expect to win money there. So we took the typical way as most travelers do, going from one hotel to another, appreciating the building designs, taking photos and window shopping, gambling at each hotel with a small amount of money. That was a good strategy because, as a result, we won about tens of dollars.

 

我们不是赌客,也没期望自己能赢钱,因此就采取了大多数观光客的旅游方式。从一个酒店走到另一个酒店,看看建筑设计,拍拍照片,逛逛商店,在每个赌场都小赌一把。这种策略倒不错,最终还小赢了一下。
