Las Vegas The Luxor Area

Going on a city trip to Las Vegas? Located in the Nevada desert, the “Entertainment Capital of the World” is known to offer its visitors non-stop entertainment and fun. New attractions and shows pop up all the time, making sure you will have something new to discover every time you visit the city.

Compared to many other modern resorts and attractions, the Luxor in Las Vegas exists for quite some time – it opened its doors in 1993 and at that time, the pyramid-shaped building was the tallest on the Strip. Nowadays, many consider it a bit outdated but it’s still a lot of fun to visit this Egyptian-themed resort. As you can expect in this extravagant city, there’s a casino, a wedding chapel, swimming pools, a spa and retail stores in the resort. It is located south of the Strip and has the Mandalay Bay and Excalibur resorts as neighbours.

Did you like the movie Titanic with Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet? Then you’ll probably like to visit “Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition” at the Luxor, which attracted already more than 25 million visitors from all over the world. Here you can travel back in time and see 250 artifacts that were on board the ocean-liner that tragically wrecked. The makers of the exhibition also recreated some of the rooms that were aboard the ship, so you can really experience and learn how it was.

Other shows at the Luxor are “Criss Angel – Believe” by Cirque du Soleil – a magic show full of mind-blowing illusions; the fun and entertaining “Jabbawockeez” show full of dancing and mime comedy; and “Bodies… the Exhibition” where you can learn more about the human body. 13 real bodies and more than 260 organs and body parts are displayed here, so it’s not for the weak of heart!

Things to do around the Luxor in Las Vegas

Once you’ve seen what’s in the Luxor resort, let’s explore a few top attractions and things to do in the Luxor area…

Such as Mandalay Bay – the resort is connected to the Luxor through The Shoppes at Mandalay Place. This large collection of luxury retail stores, restaurants and more, is located at a sky bridge between the two resorts. Furthermore, the Mandalay Bay Resort has an amazing Shark Reef Aquarium – a very exciting place for visitors of any age; and it hosts the “Michael Jackson: One” show by Cirque du Soleil. Check our offers to book tickets for this popular show in advance! For some tropical vibes, visit the Mandalay Beach with its wave pool and a spectacular waterfall.

Also very closeby is the New York New York Hotel & Casino. Get on the roller coaster for a thrilling ride around and right through the hotel, visit Hershey’s Chocolate World, or watch the “Zumanity” Cirque du Soleil show – don’t bring the kids to this seductive show though…
