we are booked at the mirage in October for 9 nights for my daughters wedding. my son is now looking for accommodation and says he cant afford the mirage. I looked at a standard room for him and it is $1200 for 9 nights. he says a backpackers or similar would do him. I would like him to be as close as possible to us, is there somewhere close by that is cheaper? yes I know, I will probably just pay for him to stay at the mirage, but he does want to be independent and pay his own way.
