The newest of the themed hotels and casinos in Las Vegas, opened in 2000 after the legendary predecessor casino of the same name was blown up in 1997. Everything here revolves around Arab nights. The complex, which consists of the “Aladdin Resort and Casino” and the “Desert Passage” (46,000 square meters of shopping mall, an artificial thunderstorm often takes place: Harbor Gate Rainstorm), cost 1.4 billion dollars and offers 130 shops, 21 restaurants, 2 Casino, a show hall with 7,000 seats and almost 2,600 hotel beds. Not only designer offers are on offer, as in Caesar’s Forum Shops, but also purchases for the normal budget (including kitchen utensils!). A tip for cheap and relatively quiet dining is the food court (quick kitchen offers for self-service). The 40-story building shines out over the Strip. The London Club, a European-style casino, is located within the complex; it is reserved for high stakes players. One year after opening, the Aladdin went bankrupt (continued operation under Chapter 11). It now has a new owner: Planet Hollywood International. This company plans to remove the elements of the Middle East and bring Hollywood to Las Vegas. The work for this should cost up to 140 million dollars. In particular, the entrance area and the Desert Passage Shopping Center will be designed to be more customer-friendly. The conversion work is carried out while the plant continues to operate.

The Paris Las Vegas was opened in September 1999 and shows the French capital in miniature with the Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomphe and Opera. The staff tries to use French chunks. At $ 785 million, the complex was only half the price of the Bellagio or the Venetian; Everyone recognizes this “small” difference in comparison. All buildings look a bit like paper mache. One tries to create a Parisian atmosphere at the entrance area of ​​the Strip: fountains, trees, Montgolfier balloons and a brasserie, the only place where you can eat and drink something directly on the Strip. The background noise in the casino is remarkably “annoying”.


  • Eiffel Tower Experience at Paris

An exact replica of the Eiffel Tower in Paris, but “only” about 160 m high and therefore half as high as the original. The tower offers a fantastic view of the Strip and is especially popular after sunset. There is an expensive dining restaurant (La Tour Eiffel) on the first floor. There are guided tours using a glass elevator to the viewing platform. Tip: The replica of the Eiffel Tower is the ideal place to watch the Bellagio water ballet because it is exactly opposite.

  • We will rock you
