To help visitors ring in 2014 the Las Vegas way, experts from MGM Resorts International offer insider tips on how to plan and navigate #VegasNYE: For more details and booking information, visit newsroom.mgmresorts.com.
1. RACE AGAINST THE CLOCK
Good things come to those who wait, but #VegasNYE room rates are not one of them; rates will only go up so hurry and book your stay now. Resorts such as Bellagio, MGM Grand and Mandalay Bay require guests to check in Dec. 30 with two-night minimum. For those planning to only spend Dec. 31 in town, resorts including ARIA and The Mirage can accommodate guests checking in on New Year’s Eve.
Insider tip: Avoid the planning hassle with Monte Carlo’s “Ring in 2014 in VIP Style” package where guests can save up to 25% off rates along with entry to The Pub’s NYE party while relaxing the next day with up to 20% off spa treatments.
2. JOIN THE A-LISTERS

Cole rings in 2014 at 1 OAK at The Mirage.
Guests looking for a show-stopper to spice up their countdown can head to HAZE Nightclub at ARIA. The sizzling nightclub will host a legendary live performance by John Legend, a critically acclaimed nine-time GRAMMY Award-winning singer and songwriter.
3. BEST SPOTS TO SEE FIREWORKS
Fireworks light up the sky along Las Vegas Boulevard at midnight so it’s crucial to find a good vantage point well ahead of time. The best-kept secret locales are miX Lounge and Foundation Room atop Mandalay Bay. Each venue has an outdoor patio and floor-to-ceiling windows facing The Strip for a bird’s eye view so guests won’t miss any of the action.
Insider tip: Want to be on The Strip and still watch the fireworks? Try the outdoor patios at Diablo’s at Monte Carlo and Nine Fine Irishmen at New York-New York – right in the middle of all the action.
4. FOOD FOR FUEL
Foodies might find it challenging to choose a dining venue among The Strip’s countless mouthwatering options, but have no fear! Guests looking for an exceptional meal and an unparalleled dining experience should try Julian Serrano’s Picasso or Jean-George Vongerichten’s Prime Steakhouse at Bellagio, both located by the resort’s award-winning Fountains. Running out of new Vegas restaurants to try? TENDER Steak & Seafood at Luxor is debuting a special menu item – TENDER Rossini and Lobster. The delectable course features of an 8-ounce grilled Black Angus beef filet mignon served with roasted foie gras, a truffle Madeira sauce and more than a pound of braised Mainelobster.
Insider tip: Many restaurants offer special NYE prix fixe menus, such as FiAMMA Trattoria & Bar at MGM Grand. Diners can indulge in this extravagant menu featuring options such as terrine of foie gras and lobster or sea bass steak in a potato crust. It’s a culinary experience worth celebrating.
5. LIVE LIKE A HIGH ROLLER
Visiting Vegas with an entourage? Staying in a suite is surely the best bet. Most suites are more affordable with larger groups and have expansive entertainment areas, or even billiards tables, for a private celebration. If a panoramic view of The Strip is a must, the newly renovated Skyline Terrace Suites at MGM Grand offer two stories of chic living and entertainment space, an outdoor patio with lounge chairs, and spectacular views of The Strip (plus fireworks)!
Insider tip: Other amazing suite options include Sky Villas at ARIA and The Villas at The Mirage. Both options provide personal butlers who will arrange limousine transportation to and from the airport and stock the fridge with guests’ celebratory drink of choice.

The Macau Government Tourist Office (MGTO) has unveiled four new fascinating walking tours designed to take visitors off the beaten tourist trail and help them discover lesser known communities, savour local cuisines and discover the city’s culture like never before.
Available for free from MGTO tourist information centres and available for download from MGTO’s website (www.macautourism.gov.mo), the four walking tours, titled ‘Step Out, Experience Macau’s Communities’, are each themed to take in a different aspect of Macau:
Route 1 – A Tour of Historical Trails. This route mainly covers the area around which the Macau residents call ‘San Ma Lou’- a unique area with traces of both Chinese and Portuguese residents’ life. Sites include the UNESCO World Heritage listed Holy House of Mercy and St. Dominic’s Church and Sam Kai Vui Kun once a former meeting place for local Chinese merchants and a former Opium House. The route gives plenty of opportunities to taste authentic snacks and food from clay pot rice and traditional desserts to salted fish and dried oysters.
Route 2 – A Tour of Nature and Creativity. This scenic route takes in landmarks such as the Pou Chai Sim Iun (Kun Iam Tong) temple whose origins can be traced back to the Ming Dynasty; the Guia Lighthouse, with panoramic views of Macau and the Pearl River estuary. It showcases the Macau Tea Culture House, where visitors can learn about tea cultures, the scenic Lou Lim Ieoc Garden featuring a variety of beautiful bonsai and finishes in the St Lazarus district, an area of interesting specialty shops selling local creative goods as well as one of the three oldest churches in Macau.
Route 3 – A Tour of East Meets West. This walk starts from Senado Square and among the many historic buildings highlighted are the Dom Pedro V Theatre – the earliest European theatre in China – the 16th century St. Lawrence’s Church and the Mandarin’s House, built in the style of a traditional Guangdong residence but with architectural influences from the West. Also included are the Moorish Barracks and the Ming Dynasty A-Ma Temple, the oldest building in Macau, which is close to Portuguese restaurants.
Route 4 – A Tour of Arts and Culture. Starting at the waterfront Macau Fisherman’s Wharf dining, shopping and entertainment complex, this walk takes in the Macau Cultural Centre, Macau Museum of Art and the Macau Science Center which visitors can dip in and out of as they wish. Strolling past Nam Van Lake visitors will come to the 338m Macau Tower, with its spectacular views before reaching the Avenida da Republica, one of the most beautiful avenues in Macau with pretty Portuguese buildings including the world-acclaimed Pousada de Sao Tiago Hotel, and finishing at the A-Ma Temple.
Intended to be leisurely strolls, the shortest of the four walks takes approximately 90 minutes to complete while the longest takes approximately 130 minutes to complete. Illustrated on specially created maps, the new walking tours are available for free at MGTO’s tourist information centres as well as available for download from MGTO’s website (www.macautourism.gov.mo). The website also features videos of the four routes to allow visitors to virtually experience the walking tours prior to setting off. MGTO is also currently designing further walking tours, including an island tour, to be launched next year and Smartphone applications for each walking route will be available soon.
