Most of the activities associated with Las Vegas casinos involve spending (or losing) money – gambling, eating, drinking, shopping, etc. You don’t have to spend money all the time, however. When you want to take a break from the thrill of the table or the lure of the dice, try these free things available at many Las Vegas casinos. 1. Learn How Gamble If you have never gambled or been to a casino before, the whole experience can be daunting. There is a lot of jargon used, some of the games happen very fast, and the rules are not always easy to understand. If you are not familiar with the games or the etiquette of a casino, you can go to one of the free gaming lessons that many casinos offer. This includes Excalibur which offers lessons in poker, roulette, blackjack, and a few other popular games. 2. Visit an Attraction Many casinos in Las Vegas feature world-class attractions, and most of them are free. They include the huge Wildlife Habitat at the Flamingo which features a wide range of birds including, of course, the flamingo. The Bellagio has a 14,000 square-foot Conservatory and Botanical garden, The LINQ Hotel has a car collection featuring 250 vehicles, and Golden Nugget displays the world largest gold nugget in its lobby. Other attractions include the rock memorabilia on display at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, or the $28 million Popeye sculpture at Wynn. 3. Catch a Show Many of the free shows that casinos put on are world famous, but the best known is probably the fountains at Bellagio – they featured in the movie Ocean’s 11. Other shows that are available include the Fall of Atlantis Fountain Show at Caesars Palace and the circus at Circus Circus. For something completely different you should go to the Mirage to see the 54-foot replica volcano erupt.

Many clients, family and friends ask me what the difference is between Abu Dhabi and Dubai. Abu Dhabi and Dubai both lie within the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and only a mere 120km apart, many travellers believe they are both very similar but tend to go for Dubai because it is more 'well-known'. Contrary to this and having visited both extensively I can guarantee they both have their very own unique personalities and cultures. Abu Dhabi is the capital city of the UAE and the cultural hub of the country where the government and national buildings reside, it is very historic and cultural and I found it to be much more humble that Dubai. You’ll see a lot more supercars on the roads in Dubai and a lot more flashy goods on display, but I’d describe Abu Dhabi as the unsuspecting Uncle you once found out was actually secretly a millionaire – the one who happily gets about in his jeans and jumpers from Marks and Spencer and drives the banged up old Ford. The people who really have the money are always the ones who spend it the least and never talk about it. Abu Dhabi holds more than 80% of the land of UAE and is considered to be richer than Dubai. It is small, but has more political importance (and money!) than Dubai. Whilst Dubai does indeed have a great stretch of beach – the famous Jumeirah Beach, with a couple of exceptions, the majority of it is owned by the hotels so to get access to a great beach, you’ve got to pay the (often hefty) price of a day pass or become an annual beach club member to get access to the beach. Abu Dhabi actually has far more open beach than Dubai and to the city’s credit, they’ve managed it well so it hasn’t all been swallowed up by the big hotel groups. Abu Dhabi has the famous stretch of Corniche beach, much of which is public beach and will only cost you a few dirhams to get in - Adding to the more relaxed vibe in Abu Dhabi. Dubai is known for its party scenes and night life, whereas Abu Dhabi nights are quieter and more peaceful. Abu Dhabi has beautiful parks, wider roads with high buildings, and tree lined streets, whereas Dubai has shopping malls, amazing late-night fun, and is very noisy. I found my money went much further in Abu Dhabi than it did in Dubai and found great value for money there in every aspect from drinking, eating, hotels and taxis. Dubai is more cosmopolitan and geared towards younger people flashing the cash whereas the lesser-known Abu Dhabi is more like a hidden gem which hasn't been commercialised and overrun by tourists, yet.
