Left Edinburgh airport on time with delta. Flying via atlanta. Flights ok, food good, entertainment ok.

Arrived into vegas at 1830 local time(been travelling for about 17 hours by this point) and got a fab strip view on approach.

Got luggage and headed off to Treasure Island.

No queue at check in. Got allocated low floor smoking room. Unhappy with this but they were fully booked. They said we would get moved the next day.

Very tired, had a look around hotel and off to bed to get ready for next day!!!!!

More to follow!!!!

Woke up at 7am ready for a fun filled vegas day. Treasure island rooms are the nicest i have ever stayed in. The beds are so comfy, good size, flat screen tv and marble bathroom.

Had a lovely breakfast at Carnegie deli in the mirage. 4 of us and bill came to $60 inc tip. Food and service amazing.

Gambled on Deal; or no deal machines in Mirage and lost $10.00. Then walked to Forum shops. They are brilliant. So many shops and the decor was lovely. Wandered thro to caesars palace and gambled in their for a while.

We then walked across to the bellagio. It was amazing just breathe taking.

Then to dessert passage at the alladin.

We then went to Paris to have a drink. It was decorated so well.

This was a day to see everything as it was our first time and then go back and do it in more detail.

Walked back to TI to change rooms. Got a lovely room on the 30th floor with stripviews over to the Wynn.

This was about 3pm. Walked across to the wynn. It was amazing. Lovely casino and won on blackjack!!

Headed back to hotel to bathe sore feet and get ready for dinner at Top of the World.

Seated at 9pm with a window seat and words cannot describle the views.

Dinner was lovely we all had fillet steak, salad and mashed potatoes. Bill with drinks, one starter, four mains, sides and tip was $300.00 and worth every penny.

Taxi back to TI where we gambled a bit and then off to bed.

Woke up at 8am and got monorail down to mgm.

Walked about there and seen the lions. Walked from there to excalibur then on to the luxor. Had breakfast at the luxor. Was ok, service wasnt up to much.

From there we went to Mandalay bay and walked around.

Walked from there to NyNy. 2 of the party went on the rollercoaster. I loved this hotel. The casino was like being in central park and the food court was great too.

Gambled a bit there and then got monorail to las vegas hilton.

Left there and walked to Circus circus, which is the biggest dump i have ever set foot in! Quickly left and walked back to TI.

Had dinner at Kahunaville- my steak was undercooked a lot. it was ok but wouldnt go back. Gambled a bit and off to bed.

Most of the day we spent walking around the hotels on the strip.

We had buffett breakfast at dishes and it was ok, $12 and you got all the usual breakfast items.

In the afternoon we went to venetain to go on a gondola. It was great. $15 per person and worth it.

Night time we headed downtown to fremont street. It was ok but much prefer new las vegas. felt it was a bit grubby downtown. Had dinner at henneseys, an irish pub. Food and service both great.

Back to TI to gamble then off to bed.

Last day!!!!

Had a long lie in. got up at 10am and walked back down to bellagio and caesars to buy some presents and take more pictures.

Just wanted to see everything again. Just strolled around, had drinks and gambled.

Back to TI to relax before heading to Venetian for dinner at canaletto.

The food and setting was great. Service ok, but not impressed when the waitress advised me how much of a tip was average. I know how to tip but after that she just cut 5% off her tip. It was so rude.

Wandered back to treasure island and had drinks. Gambled for about an hour at blackjack then got some more ben and jerrys and off to bed.

Day to go home.

Up at 7am to get a taxi to the airport.

Flight home was ok, bit crammed. Arrived safe and sound in edinburgh after a stop in atlanta on the 1st dec.

I love las vegas and would go back in a minute.

Things are expensive in vegas but you are on holiday so you just go with it.

Any questions just ask.

Sorry for spelling and typos!!!!

Thanks for reading.
