(Part 2) 2 weeks in Los Angeles (LA), Las Vegas (LV) and San Francisco (SF) for less than SGD5,500 each

Day 6
Depart Los Angeles and drove all the way to Las Vegas.

Ghost Town Road?!?!?!?!?!
Seven magic mountains - Desert art installation featuring 7 painted boulder totems up to 35 ft. high

Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area

This is the reason why we choose to drive instead of taking a flight to Las Vegas (LV).
Before reaching LV, it is recommended to go to Red Rock Canyon. There is this Red rock scenic loop (13 miles) where you get to see beautiful view :D
If you are more adventure, you can do hiking here too.

Cost: USD15/car

Return Car Rental
As LV is very accessible by bus  + Monorail, parking is super duper expensive and the most famous location is all located along "The Strip" (similar to Singapore Orchard Road), thus we will not be driving in LV.

Vdara Hotel

Vdara is located right in the middle of The Strip (Behind Bellagio with linked walkway access between them).

There are around 25 hotels in Vegas under MGM Resorts International Group. So it is quite rare you will see wild price war among the hotel there.

Cost: SGD713 for 4 nights
