Travelling SEAsia - my massive review. Hong Kong, Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand (Shenzhen, Macau). Motorbike & vegan travel tips

Mammoth post incoming..... I read a lot of posts in this thread and others to help me prepare for my first time backpacking in South East Asia, used mostly reddit and youtube to collect information and in return to all the helpful people who advised me, I want to add a bit to the info out there. This was our first time backpacking in Asia but we have both travelled a decent amount, apologies to those seasoned backpackers who might eye roll at the obvious things I point out! And how long this post is! few linked included where possible.
I travelled with my boyfriend (both in our mid 20s) for 7 weeks from Nov 2019 to Jan 2020 covering 4 countries; Hong Kong, Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand. We travelled as a couple, not really looking for the typical hostel/partying experience. I had spots/cities we wanted to stop in picked out more so I could check that our return flight back gave us enough time (bf had job to come back for). For those interest I travelled with 40l backpack (Osprey ladies size I recommend for small gals). and 15l day back and boyfriend had 65l backpack. I really reccommend getting up to date on vaccines and/or visiting somewhere like Nomad travel (UK major cities only) for additional shots. We also bought a medical kit from them which came in very handy and I would buy THIS one (works out cheaper than making your own).
Our original plan was to buy a motorbike in Ho Chi Minh and then use that as our main mode of transport to bike across Cambodia and then finally go to Bangkok, so there's a section about bikes at the end.
I am plant based / have a pretty strong dairy intolerance, so I'll add a section about travelling as a 'vegan' as I found it more difficult to get concrete advice on that before I left.
We are from UK so our budget/prices we evaluated against £ GBP
Hong Kong - this was the most built up and relatively similar experience to our lives at home and eased us pretty gently into travel. I would compare Hong Kong to a metropolitan place like London. We stayed in the Wan Chai district and would recommend the are for first timers. Not as expensive as the Central District and gives more local flavour with the street markets which you are likely to explore or pass through on the way to the MTR. Stay on Hong Kong Island over the peninsula as a lot of activities are there and though it is more compact you get a good sense of what HK is really like.
Prices - cost of restaurants was about the same as home - £8-10+ for a meal. Transport - incredibly cheap, routes often less than £1 or 50p Lots of 7/11 and Circle K with reasonable prices for snacks or eating in
Things we did: - Victoria Peak - there are some views more 'within' the city if you take the giant escalator up and walk a bit further as opposed to going straight to the top - Mong Kok area and surrounding markets - Hong Kong museum - quite dated and nothing on history of recent years but it is free - Hong Kong Peninsula night time view of HK island (symphony of lights show) - Temple Street night market - Dragon's Back - this was easy to get to via bus and a nice welcome break from the city. An easy hike. - Ching Chung Koon, Tao temple - really beautiful temple with turtles, easy trip by bus to visit
Shenzhen - We went to Shenzhen as we wanted to see what China was like and had some intrigue about it being a Special Economic Zone. My advice to absolutely everyone, unless you know of something on the other side you want to see, is do not go.
We read that it was free to enter but you would have to get a short stay visa stamp. We ended up stuck in immigration after getting off the MTR for about 2 hours, first you must go and get a photo and a visa put in your passport which includes filling our a form and being asked a few questions about your stay, then you go downstairs and fill our a landing card, get fingerprinted and then pass through to Shenzhen. There isn't a clear explanation as to where these different rooms are to get the whole process done and you're at the mercy of how busy the waiting rooms are for how quick you get out, no visas would be ready and then they would surge in 10 being ready for collection at once.
Shenzhen was a very homogenous city, we couldn't find any historical sites or areas designed for non Chinese to engage with the local fare, though bare in mind Shenzhen is absolutely huge and we were short on time after arriving later. Tube system is cheap and in English and we used cash to pay. When we tried to use bank cards to take out more money I had no luck with Mastercard, Visa and Visa credit card at more than one ATM. The best part of the trip was a small antique shop in the train terminal with genuine trinkets, pottery etc. The guy was quite fair with our haggling too.
Macau - Again we visited this as another special zone outside of HK. Again unfortunately I don't recommend going. To us, Macau was missing all the parts of the Vegas strip that would make a high concentration of casinos together worthwhile; no smoking indoors, no open carry on alcohol on the streets, no street vendors or anything to create an interesting people-watching street, not helped by how spread out all the casinos were from one another. We visited the Venetian which brought us away from the casinos on the ferry side of Macau, so that might have made a difference. The Venetian at Macau had the same feeling as The Trafford Centre if UK readers are familiar with it. If you have been there you'll have your own opinion about it and use that to inform going to Macau.
Hong Kong Protests - Before leaving for HK I'd been keeping up with the protest news. Though by November the 'peak' of protests seemed to have passed a lot in UK news there were still plenty of reports of violent clashes daily. From digging around online I felt that it was still safe to go but just to be mindful of large groups of people collecting or the university area. Whilst we were in HK we didn't see anything that alarmed us or made us feel unsafe. While I don't think the media outlets were incorrectly reporting protest clashes, the actual volume of them appears to be exaggerated (but that's how news makes money, right..). We saw graffiti at most MTR stations and some bus stations that had english text posters and print outs explaining the situation that were even updated overnight to new developments like Trump's treaty. One mall we tried to go to adjacent to some university buildings was closed and the MTR next to it was all smashed up but other than graffiti we felt very safe when wandering round the city both day and night. I would say the university area probably needs the most caution, but if the MTR is stopping there again then there has probably been improvement.
Vietnam - We flew into Ho Chi Minh city, stayed for about 3 days. I'm curious to return to Vietnam in the North of the country, while the South was very interesting to see I was more than ready to move on after about 8 days. Didn't really get a good feeling out of HCMC; extremely loud, sticky, busy place. The best thing we did was go to the War Remnants Museum, things like the old post office were interesting but they don't really take up much of your day. A phone sim for 2 weeks with unlimited data was easy to get and cost less than £10 I think.
HCMC is a good place to take advantage of cheap taxis and cheap food. We could get a good meal and a soft drink/smoothie for £2.50/£3, grab taxi was about £1 anywhere and £1.50 in a grab car, Circle K essentials like a sewing kit were about £2.
Would recommend the Grab app for getting around - though it wasn't my favourite place we visited, I was really able to appreciate the pace and culture of the city zipping through little side streets on the back of the bike from District 1 down to other places in Chinatown area.
There are plenty of markets to visit, but when you've seen the stuff at one the others aren't really much different and people didn't really want to haggle with us.
We did a Mekong Delta day trip, though I'm not always a big fan of a guided tour this was fun and worth going on. Have a look on a site like Klook and pick something that sounds interesting and in budget - we visited temples, honey farm, coconut farm, held some snakes, traditional boat on Mekong and lunch for about £18 each for everything.
Nha Trang - we visited here as somewhere in South Vietnam by the sea before heading westways for the rest of the trip. It was a much calmer and quieter city than HCMC but I'm not sure I would visit again, very windy in November. An unbelievable amount of Russians here, more built up and developed than I was anticipating too. Long Son Pagoda and Ba Ho waterfalls were good to visit, though Ba Ho seemed to be having a very big touristy development built on it which was a weird contrast to the very difficult to climb and almost untouched waterfalls. We biked to Bai Dai beach - just make sure to take the first turn down to the beach before you hit the strip of resorts being built because it goes on forever and they won't let you through for access to the sand. Beautiful views on the way down but can see the whole area and Vietnam in general being swallowed up by package resort tourism which is a shame.
Cambodia - This ended up being my favourite country of the visit. Though there's not really pavements or waste management or sewage and you can't drink the water etc, but there was little rampant tourism, people were kind, the weather was great and we saw some beautiful places. Phone sim will cost you about $5 and you can only top up limited data about $5 for 8GB.
Prices - Cambodia has 2 currency system with USD and riel though most of the time you're using USD (4,000 r = $1). I felt like because of USD prices were rounded up a bit more so it was still cheap, but more expensive than Vietnam. Eating out probably about $5-7 or more if you're not holding back. There aren't many chain stores in Cambodia so you're at the mercy of individual places for a good selection of snacks and then hopefully not grossly inflated prices especially on Western imports ($2.50+ for pringles?). I did find that pharmacies were cheap. Make sure you haggle with tuk tuks or use PassApp, but that app needs some work so it's often easier to take one that's in the street. In PP/SKampot getting around we paid no more than $3. In SR to go to the airport $7.
We took a bus to Phnom Penh from HCMC which made the border crossing quite easy. We had e-visa already printed out etc but it didn't seem to make our waiting time any shorter but saved us having to fill out any forms at border control.
Phnom Penh - felt a lot nicer than HCMC as soon as we got there really. Still hot and dirty and hassled like hell for tuk tuks but I felt more kindness from Cambodians. Compared to HCMC this was a whole lot quieter and more relaxed. Not every building has a formal address so if you're not staying at a hotel (airbnb) bear in mind you might need more visual instructions to find your stay.
We stayed near the Royal Palace and the area round there, though more for expats was chilled out and there were local markets, not far to walk to temples and sites etc. There are a few hotels in this area with pools if you need to cool off. The one we tried we just took the lift up to the roof no problem, but I had messaged another nearby that said it was for residents only.
Siem Reap - though this city is pretty much here for Angkor Wat tourism I enjoyed being here not just to see the temples. We stayed at THIS airbnb which was very reasonable and probably one of our favourite stays. No pool but there were a few places nearby that were happy to let us use theirs, we just bought drinks and food. There are a few temples in the city near the city where you can see fruit bats all in the trees. The river here is nice, big market, lots of cats.
Angkor Wat: we bought a 3 day pass and went on a sunrise tour one morning and then did our own thing on the other days. Doing the tour means you get up and in for sunrise at the right time and it's good to get some history about the places you're seeing. Angkor Wat temple itself wasn't the most interesting to me and there are hundreds if not thousands of people there in the morning that makes it a lot less enjoyable. We also visited:
Ta Phrom - temple from Tomb Raider Angkor Thom city gates Bayon Temple - this was a cool 2 storey temple that is merged with depictions of Hinduism and Buddhism Preah Khan
You can hire a tuk tuk driver for a day around $15 mark or you can hire electric bikes in SR centre and take those around (tourists not allowed to ride motorbikes in temple complex) $5 for 24hrs. Just make sure to give your electric bike a good charge beforehand as the battery doesn't always read right. There is a restaurant in the complex you can swap your battery at - the whole temple area is an extremely large place, you can be 15mins drive in between spots so plan carefully.
Koh Rong Island - we took a flight from SR down to Sihanoukville to then get the ferry across to Koh Rong. Our flight ended up being delayed by 12 hours (welcome to Cambodia) so we had to stay a night in Sihanoukville and go across the following day. Travelling from Sihanouk airport to Sihanouk we had to wear bandanas over our faces to stop breathing in the dust, even though only one window in the car was cracked, it's hella dirty. If you are travelling from the airport to town I highly discourage taking a tuk tuk or rickshaw; the roads are not well surfaced in a more extreme manner than what I saw in PP and SR, there are a lot of freight trucks which will need to be over or undertaken in order for the journey to not take hours. Taxis are unfortunately the most expensive here and the journey cost $20.
Sihanoukville - I'm told recent infiltration and development of Sihanouk by the Chinese has completely transformed the city in the last 2/3 years at an incredible rate with no care for the local Khmer population. It was possibly the worst place I've ever visited. Dusty and dirty on another level, open building sites and construction absolutely everywhere. Very young looking boy in a digger pulling up the pavement less than 5ft from a busy restaurant. I had to climb up a 3ft pile of loose rubble to get to an ATM because the whole side of the road had been obliterated.
If you are waiting for the ferry on Beach Road and you need an ATM but they're all broken like they were when I was there in December, there is an ATM on the actual pier. I was stressing about taking money out for Koh Rong as I heard there was no way to get cash on the island but when I was there I saw a few places that offered cash out (but I didn't try them).
I reccommend reading THIS reddit thread and the LINKED article by a Chinese blogger about Sihanouk.
I read THIS travelfish article about Koh Rong which was very helpful too. I had an impression from the article that the island is quite under developed, which in some ways was definitely true, however it was easy to do what we wanted and we didn't struggle for places to eat etc. We stayed on the main pier (though really this is still a small strip of restaurants and shops, no resorts) and spent most of our time on White Sand Beach. Koh Rong could not be any more different than Sihanouk and it was a great place to spend Christmas and unwind. We didn't do much other than swim and lie on the beach and it was great! There were boat tours to take but a lot seemed to end with 'free drink and party' and we weren't interested in that. Prices on the island were the same as PP/SR. The only things that were a lot more expensive were activities - someone had a jetski you could rent for $100.. and there was some tree top zip line you could do for about $20.
We visited 4k beach next door which was a lot more remote, beautiful as well but only one option to eat. We came past Coconut Beach when we left on the speedboat and that looked to a bit less than the main pier but still stocked with a good few options. Overall the food we had on Koh Rong was some of the best!
Kampot - A small town/city on the river. Very chilled with a nice central part of town with good places to eat. There are hardly any big hotels or buildings over 3 stories - it felt like a more real Khmer place than somewhere like Siem Reap. From Kampot you can visit Bokor Mountain, Kep, salt fields, a lot of natural escapes. Unfortunately we both got very sudden aggressive gastro-bug or food poisoning so we spent 5 days pretty much inside doing nothing (was going to happen at some point). Kampot was a quiet place and we were able to recover well here though.
Kampot to Koh Chang - From Kampot we travelled to Koh Chang, Thailand. I'd seen some speculation online that it wasn't possible to do this trip in one day, but having done it I can say yes it is but it is a long day. Almost every bus trip we took on our adventure meant that we lost all of the day (no motorways in Viet/Cambodia) however the quality of transport means it can take even longer. Vietnam was good with sleeper or semi sleeper buses, however in Cambodia our 6.5 hour trip from Kampot to the Thai border at Trat was 16 people in a 12 seater minibus plus a baby.. so bear in mind long distance trips in Cambodia can be testing! From Trat border we got a minibus to the bus station, then a songalew/thai taxi to the ferry and then a minibus took us to our hotel on the other side [12 hour trip].
Thailand - Much more infastructure and felt more modern than Cambodia and Vietnam, but I couldn't really get a vibe for the place and felt like a lot had been lost to the prevalent tourism. I would maybe visit again but staying away from coastal areas - if felt like the Spain of South East Asia.
Prices could be a little more on top of Cambodian prices but you could find cheap places to eat. About £5 for a meal. Taxis cost about £3 through Grab. 7/11 and Family Mart very cheap snacks for pennies.
Bangkok - as this was our last stop we didn't travel to many temples or big spots outside the city because money haha... we stayed away from the expat areas, the Museum of Art & Culture had a cool free exhibition, the malls Siam Discovery, Siam Paragon are worth visiting for the food halls and just to see. Where we stayed had a pool so we took it pretty easy. Went to Chatachuk but too much tourist and sweat..
Bikes:
We bought a bike in HCMC via facebook marketplace - I would suggest if you know anyone Viet to get them to help you get the true price because as a tourist you're probably seeing an inflated price tag. If not that it might be possible to get one from another backpacker, but then you may be at the mercy of any damages or issues with the bike they're not aware of as they aren't familiar with bikes.
We took our bike (Honda Cub c 50) to Nha Trang with us stowed in our sleeper bus - we visited a few bus trip/tourist places and one was happy to do it for us. I think for 2 people and the bike was about £23 one way, so not bad at all. You'll have to empty the fuel before it goes in the bus so just remember that at the other end you might have to give your bike a min to run the fuel through it again. We sold it in Nha Trang because it wasn't quite powerful enough to get us around with any bags (i was not in charge of buying bike haha...). Bikes are more than easy to rent in every country we went to for probably £5 a day max. We had a bike in Koh Chang but I know in Thailand there are more rules about tourist rental so I would swerve riding on the mainland. The most hectic place we rode was HCMC so I would just suggest avoiding that if you can, even if you ride in your home country.
We sold our bike in Nha Trang via facebook marketplace. We took a loss but it was more about cutting our dead weight before the rest of our trip so to speak. If you really want to ride a lot in SEAsia, Cambodia has no restrictions on tourists having bikes up to 125cc if you want to play the legal legal route (not that I saw any police in Cambodia over 3 weeks!). A bike is also a responsibility and if you're wanting to feel completely free while travelling it might not be right to buy one. Do thorough research! I travelled with a full face helmet and I was grateful for it on windy rides and hectic places likes HCMC. If you're not planning on riding a lot then this is definitely not essential but finding a full face helmet, that fits, that isn't too bootleg to break on you might be some things to consider (bare in mind I was planning on doing long rides when planning this trip initially).
Veganism / plant based / special diets: As mentioned I have strong intolerance to all dairy products and am generally vegan; I still eat eggs maybe once a week and might have fish and chips a few times a year.
With the exception to intolerances and allergies I think the best approach to eating in South East Asia or travelling in general is be willing to be flexible. I only like to eat plant based, but I'm happy to eat eggs and at a push will eat fish or chicken. This is obviously not what I want to do for every meal but consider that you might be getting places late at night, options that are clearly described in English as not containing your allergens may only have meat in them etc.
When I travelled to Japan and also for all these countries, I wrote 'I cannot eat dairy etc' in English on Google translate and then screenshotted the response in the desired language if I needed to show someone to confirm ingredients. For Japan I looked up pre made examples as I know the kanji can sometimes not translate directly, but here I just had the google translate page as a back up.
Hong Kong - a lot of English spoken here and a lot of specifically vegan places however they are more expensive. At 7/11 they sell the 'Kind' granola bars which are vegan and yummy! and I also ate the ready made egg and rice sushi balls. Some ingredients were listed in English but I don't remember finding any other easy go-to's. At bakeries, of which there are a lot, almost everything appears to be cream filled, buttered, flaky pastry. I found I could eat walnut and raisin breads without any noticeable issues, but I didn't have an ingredients list to check.
Vietnam - in HCMC I was very lucky to be staying down the road from a fully vegan restaurant that had ice cream, vegan banh mi, smoothies etc (Healthy World in District 1, there is another somewhere else in the city). Tofu was on menus and on an English menu in a Viet place I could safely pick something veggie. Asking for a dish to be 'chay' means veggie and that works too. Because everything is so cheap, it seemed to be easy enough to eat here. Desserts were limited with the exception of a vegan shop.
They do have Oreos, in general for all these countries, I hope you like Oreos because they're the only dessert option most place !
Cambodia - Sometimes easy and sometimes not. Tofu did appear on menus, I would recommend trying Tofu Lok Lak as a veggie Khmer dish (it will probably come with a fried egg) and I was able to ask for curries just veggie or with tofu. I ate mostly eggs and toast of some kind for breakfast because that was a filling option. Every city I was in there was at least one vegan cafe or restaurant that was not too much more ££ than a normal meal so I knew at least I could get myself something nice and safely vegan every other day while keeping a budget. I was concerned about Koh Rong being a remote island that I would struggle to eat but this was one of the best places! There is a purely veggie/vegan restaurant on the main pier, as well as other restaurants offering vegan pizza, veggie pad thai, tofu curries etc. I also found a second kind of chocolate biscuit that wasn't an Oreo here!
Koh Chang/Thailand - though we were back to having access to 7/11 the options seemed more limited and Thailand was my least favourite place to eat. In 7/11 I did find a few different kinds of Almond milk (& oreos!) but ingredients were rarely in English. Some options at the food halls were inari sushi, Subway (hash browns) and a few other (but more pricey) dedicated vegan restaurants in the central district.
You deserve a medal if you made it this far - any questions please ask me, thanks :-)

Las Vegas trip report (restaurant heavy)

I went on vacation to Las Vegas with my wife from July 2nd-7th. This was my 5th trip and our 3rd together. Here's my (excessively long) trip report:
Hotel
This time we stayed at the Cosmopolitan, and we had a Terrace Studio Fountain View room. It was our first stay at Cosmo (I'd been to Wynn, Luxor, Aria Sky Suites, and Bellagio previously), and the hotel was great. I thought our room was nicer than the one we had at Bellagio last year and for a cheaper price (friend who is a travel agent got us a pretty good deal). Literally the only downside I can think of is not being able to listen to the fountain music on TV. We were in the Chelsea Tower (which is larger than Boulevard), and had a great balcony view.
Cosmo definitely attracts a younger crowd than some of the other casinos on the strip- lots of people in their 20s and 30s staying here. There are two main pools, one in each tower. When we went down to the Chelsea Pool around 11am on the 3rd, literally every seat was already taken. Note: Chelsea Tower is much larger than Boulevard, but its pool is much smaller. We hiked over to the Boulevard Pool and settled in. Great view looking over the strip with a livlier atmosphere than you'll find at the Bellagio's pools. Also worth noting the water is pretty shallow- no more than 4' deep. The most amusing part of our swimming experience was watching an Asian kid, probably 10 years old, swim all around the place, bumping in to every other group there, and saying hi. Seemed odd that he was basically on his own at that age, but he was clearly having a helluva time.
One of the best parts about Cosmo is its location- right in the center of the strip, which makes an easy walk to most of the other casinos. It has a great selection of restaurants (see below) and modern decor as well. One notable omission in my opinion is it doesn't have any shows/productions in house. The casino also doesn't have a poker room, but I didn't end up playing during this trip anyhow. Easy walk to the Bellagio or Aria poker rooms regardless.
Checkin to the hotel was very easy. Our flight got in to Vegas at about 8am on Sunday, so the room wasn't ready yet when we arrived. They took down all my info, and we left our bags with the bellhop. They sent a text message when the room was ready around noon, and they brought the bags up to our room. I used the online checkout on Friday morning. Easy peasy.
Uber
Side note- I'd never used Uber before this trip. Definitely recommend it for others in the same boat. Cheap/easy to use, and I liked riding with the average Uber driver more than the average cabbie. Each hotel has its own pickup/dropoff location for UbeLyft- just ask any employee, and they'll point you in the right direction. I never had to wait more than five minutes to get my ride.
Shows/attractions
The only show we saw on this trip was Ka at the MGM Grand. I'd pretty much recommend any Cirque du Soleil show on the strip- they're all pretty amazing. O at the Bellagio is probably my favorite, but Ka was great in its own right. Supposedly it's unique among Cirque shows in that it has a big storyline, but uh... I'd just say there's not much of one. Amusing moment before the show: I get a text message from my wife, who is sitting right next to me. "Am I sitting next to a drag queen?" I looked over. Yes, yes you are.
We also made a trip to the Shark Reef Aquarium at Mandalay Bay. I felt like the line for tickets was pretty absurdly long. I realized the reason for that when we got in- the whole aquarium was about half as big as I expected, so they needed to keep the flow of people in fairly slow. Having said that, the exhibits they did have were great, and there was no shortage of staff floating around to answer any questions you might have. Definitely a good spot to bring the family to in Vegas.
Food
The biggest reason we love Vegas is the food. Yes, my wife and I are the annoying people who post pictures of thier food on Facebook. The great thing about Vegas is there's multiple restaurant for just about any cuisine you can imagine right on the strip.
Wicked Spoon Buffet at Cosmopolitan (7-2-17 brunch): I like to hit up a buffet once whenever I visit Vegas, and none have disappointed. These places definitely aren't the Golden Corral. Our flight got in pretty early Sunday, so stuffing ourselves at the buffet and having extra time before dinner seemed like a good idea. To start things off, I'm a sucker for an omelette station, so I grabbed a Denver style omelette. Added some cheesy hash brown casserole (one of the best things I had), and a verrine. I have no idea what a verrine is, but it was basically a shot glass filled with mashed avocado, grapefruit, and a bit of crab. Good stuff. Had I stopped here, I would have had a normal sized brunch by most people's standards. Of course the entire point of a Vegas buffet is getting full value by stuffing yourself so full you can't walk, so I made more trips.
Next up I grabbed a jerk chicken thigh, a few pieces of spicy tuna sushi, some house-made italian sausage, and yogurt/fruit. The jerk chicken was perfect in that after the first bite I thought- that's not that spicy. 3 bites in, I'm feeling it a bit. By the end, I'm chugging my coffee/juice.
Finally it was time for dessert. When I first visited Vegas back in 2005, my friend informed me that the #1 rule of Vegas buffets is that you must try the bread pudding. You are not supposed to question the reasoning behind the rule, nor are you supposed to debate whether it's necessary. You simply do it. Wicked Spoon featured a bourbon white chocolate bread pudding. It was good, but I wasn't sure what to make of it since it tasted more like butterscotch than bourbon to me. I also had half a mango danish and some little chocolate tart. I thought I was done at this point until my wife brought back some gelato. I couldn't sit there and watch her eat, so I ended up getting some coconut-lime gelato for myself. The selection is pretty ridiculous- about 18 flavors to choose from. After the gelato, I finally waved the white flag.
Picasso at Bellagio (7-2-17 dinner): We've been wanting to visit Picasso for a while now. I was going to book a reservation here for our honeymoon back in 2014, but as it turns out they typically take a 2 week vacation in July every year. We ran into the same problem last year, but they were open on Sunday the 2nd this time before closing. Finally, we had our chance.
Picasso is basically fancy-pants French fine dining at its best. If you've ever seen the movie Ocean's Eleven, the restaurant scene was filmed there. We were seated at a table next to the window with the Bellagio fountain outside, and my wife had a real Picasso painting above her shoulder. So uh... not bad. I wore a suit and tie, but you really don't need to- wear khakis and a nice shirt, and you'll fit in fine.
We both ordered from the four course prix fixe tasting menu. My goal when eating out at nice places is to get stuff I don't cook myself / haven't tried much before. First course I got the poached oysters. The dish was basically smooth, melt-in-your-mouth like butter. Next up was the foie gras. This was the second time I've foie gras, and I've decided it's just not my thing. I could tell it was prepared properly, but I just don't think it has much flavor. The rhubarb chutney on the side was good, though. For the entree, I had the roasted milk-fed veal chop. After the first bite I literally started laughing, basically thinking, "Where has this been all my life?" Literally one of the best things I've ever eaten. If I had to nitpick, it was cooked a touch rare for my liking. But it was amazing. I wanted a lighter dessert given how much food I'd stuffed myself with that day, so I got a pineapple tart with prickly pear sorbet. Almost too pretty to eat.
Picasso is definitely the type of restaurant you take your date to if you're wanting to impress them. I like Le Cirque a bit more based on my two trips there previously. Le Cirque is a much smaller restaurant, just feels like a more intimate setting, and the service seemed a little more personal. But really you can't go wrong either way. Also, it was a nice touch seeing the chef, Julian Serrano, as we left the restaurant.
China Poblano at Cosmopolitan (7-3-17 lunch): The best way to explain China Poblano is that it seems like one person wanted to start up a Mexican restaurant at Cosmo, one person wanted to start up a Chinese restaurant, and then some executive asked, "Why don't we have both?" There are literally two different kitchens in the same restaurant, and the food is served tapas style- dishes just come out one by one whenever they're ready.
We started off with the queso fundido for an appetizer- pretty standard stuff. I ordered two tacos from the Mexican menu, one taco suadero (brisket), one carnitas. The brisket was good, the carnitas was great. Because if eating a taco with pork rinds on it is wrong, then I don't want to be right. I decided to get Mongolian beef lettuce from the Chinese menu, because I remember reading an IAMA from a Chinese restaurant owner a while back who said that was one of the best things on the menu that people rarely ordered. And he was right. We skipped dessert since our stomachs were still half full from eating the day before.
Estiatorio Milos at Cosmopolitan (7-3-17 dinner): Milos is proof that food doesn't have to be fancy to be fantastic. They just use high-quality ingredients, use a simple preparation, and let the food do the talking. The neat part about this place is that they really don't have specific fish on the menu. Instead you walk up to the fish case, pick out the one you want, and let your server know how you want it prepared. And marvel at the produce while you're at it.
We ordered the tzatziki as an appetizer, and at first I wasn't going to take a picture of it since it's just tzatziki. And then I tasted it. And I decided it deserved a picture- the best I've ever had. Next up was a Greek salad which was ridiculously good. Those definitely aren't the tomatoes you buy at Kroger. We chose lithrini, which seemed like a generic white fish, for our entree. Pan-seared with lemon, capers, and herbs. Some basic potatoes and broccoli for our sides. Milos is one of our top recommendations for people visiting Vegas.
Milk Bar at Cosmopolitan (7-3-17 dessert): We skipped dessert at Milos because we wanted to try out the Milk Bar. I grabbed one of the much-hyped compost cookies, which I actually thought was nothing special, and a spiked chocolate malt milkshake. The shake was awesome. I ended up coming back later in the trip and got a spiked coffee shake as well. Not sure they're worth $12 apiece, but you're in Vegas, so what the hell.
Eiffel Tower Restaurant (7-4-17 lunch): My wife had put this on the list of places to visit a month ahead of time, so we ended up going here for lunch. You enter the restaurant by going up an elevator in the main floor of the casino, and the doors open to give you a nice view of the kitchen. I always like restaurants where you can see people work in an open kitchen, so I thought this was a nice touch. We had reservations for when the restaurant opened, so we managed to snag one of the best tables in the place with a great view of the strip. We started off with the cheese tray as an appetizer, which was most notable for the honeycomb. I think that's the first time I've ever had real honeycomb, and it was delicious. I decided to go brunch-ish for my meal and order the lobster eggs benedict, which was easily the best eggs benedict I've ever had. We shared a frozen strawberry souffle for dessert, and the best compliment I can give about this is that we immediately began looking up recipes to make our own when we got back to our hotel room. Overall a great meal, and I think we'll head back here for dinner during our next trip to Vegas.
Tetsu at Aria (7-4-17 dinner): I'd wanted to visit a Japanese steakhouse while in town (especially since the favorite place in my town was run down by new ownership and closed), and I was a little surprised to find there weren't many options. Tetsu is actually a sectioned off portion of the BarMasa restaurant in Aria, and you can order sushi from BarMasa's menu while there. Which I did. I'm far from a sushi connoisseur, but I thought it tasted like a standard salmon roll- good, but I wasn't blown away by it or anything.
As far as the hibachi grill itself goes, the first thing to note is that the chefs basically just prepare the food in front of you but don't put on any sort of show. So if you're wanting to impress the family with a flaming onion volcano and eggs juggled on a spatula, this isn't your place. It's about the food, and the food was fantastic. I had the whole lobster, which is every bit as good as it looks. The chili shrimp cilantro fried rice was as good as the lobster, and I had some brussels sprouts on the side. My wife got the fingerling potatoes as a more photogenic side dish to her chicken. They also serve prime A5 Japanese Ohmi beef, but I couldn't justify spending $132 on a 4 oz steak. We had chocolate sesame ice cream for dessert, and the sesame was actually a lot stronger than I thought it would be (might actually put some people off).
Of course one of the fun parts of eating at these places is talking to people seated with you at the table. One of the ladies next to us teased a server, trying to get his name badge, Harvey (definitely not his given name), since apparently a guy named Harvey founded the golf club she worked at. Even went so far as to summon the manager to see if she could get the badge, but ultimately she failed in her negotiations. Everyone at the table had a laugh about the situation.
Burger Bar at Mandalay Bay (7-5-17 lunch): We were looking for a lunch spot down on this end of the strip before heading to the aquarium, and the Burger Bar (actually located in a walkway between Mandalay Bay and Luxor) came recommended by several people. To start with, they had a great beer menu. I ordered the classic bacon cheeseburger with onion rings. Great burger, cooked perfectly. I know there are several excellent burger joints on the strip, so it's probably not worth making a special trip far out of your way to come here. It's a great option if you want a burger and are on the south end of the strip, though.
Lemongrass at Aria (7-5-17 dinner): Next up, some Thai food. We had some pot stickers for an appetizer, which I thought were pretty average. Nothing to stand out here from your average takeout in either taste or presentation. My wife decided to order some wonton soup to share, and I'm glad she did. It was freakin' amazing- easily the best part of the meal. I wanted something light for my meal, so I ordered the garlic and lime steamed cod. The surprised reaction of the waitress seemed to imply that nobody ever ordered that. It was good, but you better love lime if you get it.
As luck would have it, the one time we received poor (exceptionally slow) service on the trip was when we had our meal before a show. We had to skip dessert so that we could make it down to MGM Grand in time to see Ka.
Olives at Bellagio (7-6-17 lunch): We thought about hitting up Lago for lunch, but since we were headed to Sinatra for dinner we wanted to avoid back to back Italian. Olives had a nice deal on a 3 course prix fixe lunch menu, so we ordered from that. I had the Caesar salad to start, followed it up with fish and chips, and finished it off with tiramisu. A bit of an odd combo, but a good meal. Nothing exceptional. Great server, though.
Sinatra at Encore (7-6-17 dinner): Another place we'd wanted to visit on previous trips but never had a chance to. There's tons of Frank Sinatra themed memorabilia in the place, including a Grammy, Emmy, and Oscar as you walk in the door. I'd describe the place as lively but classy as hell- which is pretty much what you'd want when going to a Rat Pack themed place.
To start off with, I ordered an Old Fashioned. It's one of my favorite drinks to order because everyone does it differently, and you never know what you're going to get. Well, it was the best Old Fashioned I've had in my left. I meant to ask the waiter what type of boorbon they used, but ultimately forgot. We ended up sharing the estiva for an appetizer, which is basically a watermelon salad. I ordered the gnochetti for my entree, which tasted great, but the portion size kind of left me wondering where the rest of it was. We shared the panna cotta for dessert, which was as good as it looked.
Eggslut at Cosmopolitan (7-7-17 breakfast): Eggslut is a casual stand at Cosmo that pretty much sells egg sandwiches all day long. I had the Fairfax with bacon, which is pretty much what they're known for. I think the reason why it was such a great sandwich was they kept the eggs inside creamy, whereas most breakfast sandwiches have the eggs cooked hard as a rock. When you walk up to the place your first thought is- whoa! Only $8... finally a reasonably priced meal. And then you realize they charge $5 for a cup of coffee or orange juice, and you remember you're still in Vegas. Regardless, this place is a good stop for breakfast or a late night snack.
Overall a great trip. Can't wait to go back again and try some different places.

Class Trial 49 - Part 4: Artpop

Puhuh...puhuhu...
Nyohohohoho! The despair in your eyes, oh, it will be wonderful to see!
As a reward for your puzzle-solving abilities, why not show you all the totally real, 100% authentic, not at all misleading motive videos!?
Ah, the looks on your faces...I'm not sure I'll be able to take it! Enjoy this feature film presentation!
The students look at the monitors all around them. The motive video begins, with a big SUPERCUT slapped on the screen. Monokuma's shrill voice cuts through the video.
"Let's go in alphabetical order, shall we?"
First on the screen is Akane with her seven little siblings. The picture transitions from that frame to the same one, with Akane being replaced by a similarly-styled man. One of her little siblings can be heard.
"Wow! Thanks big brother! You’re much better than Akane ever was!”
Next is Byakuya, sitting atop his throne with a pile of money surrounding him. The picture transitions from that frame to the same one, with Byakuya being replaced by a much older women. Togami's father can be heard.
"I'm sorry, son, but I'm giving the Togami fortune to my last wife. She loves and appreciates me, unlike you."
Next is Celeste, pictured at an underground casino, cashing in big from an underdog win. The picture transitions from that frame to the same one, with Celeste being replaced by a similarly-styled man. A croupier can be heard.
"Ladies and gentleman, the winner is Charles Ludenberg, King of Liars! He's set a world record for most money collected in a single night!"
Next is Chiaki, being taught her abilities in the newly-developed NWP with Chihiro Fujisaki. The picture transitions from that frame to the same one, with Chiaki being replaced by a similarly-styled man. Chihiro can be heard.
“You’re amazing! You’re much better than that prototype Chiaki ever was!”
Next is Fuyuhiko, badly hurt on a mission. In comes Peko Pekoyama, saving him at the last second. The picture transitions from that frame to the same one, with Fuyuhiko being replaced by a bigger and less-injured man. Peko can be heard.
“You’re great, my new Young Master. You’re not as defenseless and weak as Fuyuhiko.”
Next is Hajime, celebrating and having fun with the rest of Class 77-B. The picture transitions from that frame to the same one, with Hajime being replaced by another plain-looking Reserve Course male. Nagito can be heard.
"You’re amazing! You’re much better than that useless, talentless Hajime ever was!”
Next is Ibuki, rocking out at a concert for a sold-out crowd. The picture transitions from that frame to the same one, with Ibuki being replaced by an even wackier, even louder, and even more talented girl. One of her fans can be heard.
“Woo! We love you! You’re much better and more creative than Ibuki ever was!”
Next is Komaru, having fun with her mother, father, and Makoto. The picture transitions from that frame to the same one, with Komaru being ignored and her parents fawning over Makoto. The Naegis can be heard.
“We love you Makoto! You’re much better than Komaru ever was!”
Next is Makoto, having fun with his mother, father, and Komaru. The picture transitions from that frame to the same one, with Makoto being ignored and his parents fawning over Komaru. The Naegis can be heard.
“We love you Komaru! You’re much better than Makoto ever was!”
Next is Mikan, being pushed around and being called trash by the one and only Junko Enoshima. The picture transitions from that frame to the same one, with Mikan being replaced by Mukuro Ikusaba. Junko can be heard.
“Wow! You’re such a great pet, Mukuro! Better than that slutty nurse ever was!”
Next is Mondo, riding on a highway with his biker gang at great speeds. The picture transitions from that frame to the same one, with Mondo being replaced by an even bigger and louder man. A member of the biker gang can be heard.
“Holy shit, bro! We’re goin’ faster than ever! Faster than that little bitch Mondo ever would’ve!”
Next is Mukuro, being pushed around and being called trash by the one and only Junko Enoshima. The picture transitions from that frame to the same one, with Mukuro being replaced by Mikan Tsumiki. Junko can be heard.
“Wow! You’re such a great pet, Mikan! Better than that smelly soldier ever was!”
Next is Nagito, celebrating and having fun watching the rest of Class 77-B. The picture transitions from that frame to the same one, with Nagito being replaced by another similarly-styled girl. Hajime can be heard.
“You’re amazing! You’re much better than that creepy Nagito ever was!”
Next is Nekomaru, coaching and cheering on his athletes. The picture transitions from that frame to the same one, with Nekomaru being replaced by an even bigger, stronger, and louder man. One of his athletes can be heard.
“Wow! Thanks Coach! You’re much better than Nekomaru ever was!”
Next is Sayaka, performing at a large venue for her adoring fans with her pop group. The picture transitions from that frame to the same one, with Sayaka being replaced by a similarly-styled girl. A fellow bandmate can be heard.
“Wow! Amazing work, girlfriend! You’re much better than Sayaka ever was!”
Last on the screen is Teruteru, cooking at the family restaurant with his Mama. The picture transitions from that frame to the same one, with Teruteru being replaced by a similarly-styled boy. His Mama can be heard.
“Wow! Amazing work, little one! You’re much better than Teruteru ever was!”
The big, white words that you all saw in your videos can be seen, with Monokuma voicing over this time.
“Can you believe it? Have you really been replaced? Graduate to find out!”
The video ends, with everyone in shock.
Bwahahaha! It's magical, it's spectacular! The looks on all your faces!
Now get back to solving this case! I don't got all day, bubs!

Truth Bullets

Motive: Monokuma presented each of you with "Videos of Envy", specifically designed for each of you. These videos included aspects of being replaced, be that by someone with your talent, or by a loved one. Whatever the video contained was meant to instill envy into the students.
Monokuma File #1: The victim is Leon Kuwata. He was found in the freezer of the kitchen at 7:30 AM by Sayaka. Leon’s cause of death is burning. There is evidence of blunt force trauma applied to the back of his head. His skin from the neck up is colored blackish-red, and from the neck down, all the way to his toes, he is colored blue.
Autopsy: Everything in the File is correct. Further, Leon’s entire face was burned. There is also evidence of a burn mark on the back of the victim’s head. There are distinct bruises running along Leon’s neck, as well as a oval-shaped red marks on his skin around each bruise. Finally, the victim has white residue that is somewhere in between a liquid and solid form, around his eyes and mouth.
Akane’s Account: Once they opened the door, Leon’s body was laying on top of Sayaka. Upon seeing Leon’s body atop Sayaka, it looked like someone used whipped cream on his face. Sayaka had a wooden spoon in her hands. Akane also noted that, after the incident, she used the rice cooker, because she was hungry.
Sayaka’s Account: Sayaka reports that she arrived early in the kitchen that morning when she noticed the wooden spoon was being used to block the fridge/freezer doors. She claims that, once she released the wooden spoon, the doors opened up, and Leon’s corpse fell on top of her in a rather provocative way, and she screamed for help immediately after. She was found with the spoon in hand when Akane, Nekomaru, and Makoto walked in.
Wooden Spoon: Sayaka claims that there was a wooden spoon slipped through the handles of the fridge/freezer doors when she got there.
Trash Can in Kitchen: Some tempura has been disposed of in the trash can.
Fridge: Aside from the scattered fashion due to Leon’s body being there, not much can be found here. The whipped cream can lays near the front of the fridge, as well as a plate of chicken which, surprisingly enough, seems like it was cooked recently. On the exterior, someone etched “FOR HER” on the fridge.
Drag Marks: There are drag marks around the appliance area of the kitchen where the rice cooker, oven, and deep fryer are. There are also drag marks from this appliance area to the fridge/freezer.
Pots and Pans: Pots and pans can be found stacked atop one another on the stove in a scattered fashion.
Monokuma’s Ludicrous Laxative: In one of the kitchen cabinets, a powder-form laxative can be found. The label states that it’ll take effect approximately two hours after consumption, but that may vary depending upon body type. It also makes a note of the agonizing pain felt before having to poop. Once the laxative is mixed with the food or drink of choice, it dissolves into the product, becoming unnoticeable to the human eye.
Breakfast Raffle: The students offered to make breakfast for Teruteru because of his hard work, so they all wrote their names on a piece of paper and put it in Teruteru’s chef hat, for him to draw. Teruteru selected Sayaka, Akane, Nekomaru, Celeste, Fuyuhiko, and Mondo.
Girl’s Day: The girls planned an endeavour at the bathhouse to bond. They were brushing each other’s hair with brushes, doing makeup, and chit-chatting and gossiping. Unfortunately, their outing was interrupted by a majority of the girls needing to find a bathroom.
Girl’s Day Notes: During the girl’s day, the girls took part in a game that involved writing things on a piece of paper and passing it to the next girl. However, when the girls came back from the incident, they noticed that the paper was gone.
Missing Lipstick: Komaru reports that, upon returning to gather her things, her lipstick was missing.
Pancakes: The breakfast crew that morning made pancakes for breakfast. The ingredients include flour, sugar, cinnamon, baking powder, salt, eggs, milk chocolate chips, butter, and vanilla. The only people that were using the recipe were the randomly selected breakfast crew.
The Incident: Directly two hours after breakfast, many of the students began to rush to the bathrooms in their dorms.
Ibuki’s Account: Ibuki distinctly remembers screams of discomfort during the ‘incident’. She remembers that Teruteru’s scream was the first to signal the incident, and Nekomaru’s loud scream marked its end, around 30 minutes having passed between Teruteru and Nekomaru’s screams. In between, she heard the girls, Makoto/Hajime/Leon, Byakuya, and Mondo in between, in that order. She distinctly remembers not hearing Fuyuhiko or Nagito scream at all. She also notes that she was specifically patrolling the girl’s wing (from Ibuki/Mikan’s room to Nagito’s room). Ibuki remembers hearing a door opening and closing at 10:40 followed by footsteps, and again at 10:45, except without the footsteps after the door closed.
Hope’s Peak Academy, Despair Hotel Map: A map of HPA’s dormitory area.
Note #1: In Leon’s room, a note can be found. It reads:
Hey cutie,
Let’s make you a rockstar! Go to the music room to practice, and I’ll meet you later to make a killer single, hehe!
Your Secret Admirer
Note #2: In Leon’s room, a note can be found. It reads:
Yo, hot stuff,
Why don’tcha go cool off at the pool later? I promise, if you go there today, I’ll make it worth your while!
Your Future Workout Partner
Note #3: In Leon’s room, a note can be found. It reads:
Hey,
I’m not great with this kind of thing, I’m really sorry! If you don’t mind, though, could you go to the nurse’s office, and read the book that’s on one of the beds? I think that’ll express how I feel better than I ever could.
Your Beloved
Note #4: In Leon’s jacket pocket, a note can be found. It reads:
Hey Leon,
Why don’t we SPICE things up a bit? Haha, sorry for the CHEESY pun. I hope you DONUT deny my request to see you at the kitchen later…
Your GOUDA female friend
Paper Heart: A paper heart was found in Leon’s room. It reads:
Awesome, you found me, hehe! I’m proud of you, Leon~ Take this to the girl that you think wrote this tomorrow. I know you know it’s me!
Scene at the Music Room: At the microphone, there is a piece of tape on the microphone. Also, at the piano seat, there is a blue piece of hair.
Scene at the Pool: By the locker, there is a brown piece of hair. On the bleachers, there is a steak in the shape of a heart.
Scene at the Nurse’s Office: A book can be seen on one of the hospital beds, with the title “The Yellow Heart”. When looking through the book, it can be determined that it is a romance novel. A purple piece of hair lays on one of the chairs.

I was hunger scammed by a casino and need advice on how to move forward

I've spent approx. 30-33.3% of my Vegas trip either running to casino bathrooms, or camping out in my hotel bathroom. Is there any way I can make a case/argument against the buffet system at my casino, on the grounds that the food is intentionally supposed to make you sick, so you won't be able/inclined to leave?
Details: I got off the plane and caught a cab to take me to my hotel. I had a couple drinks, walked around the casino, went to bed. Nice, realxing night.
Day two wasn't as fun. I woke up starving, clutching my gut and rolling around on the bed for at least one whole hour before I got up. I needed to eat, and I needed to eat BAD. I almost shattered my teeth from clenching them (I do this when I get hunger pangs). Anyhow, I got up and put on some clothes - went out to seek the closest restaurant or buffet. To my luck, most of these casino hotels come equipped with a rotating buffet. I decided to go get me some brunch, especially after seeing an advertisement of an Asian-American fella looking at an extremely diverse plate of food with wild eyes and fork + knife in hand. Well, I want to be like this guy. I want to be the one who looks down at an extremely diverse plate of delicious food. It should be me. I should be that Asian-American luckboy.
I got in line, paid the $35 all-you-can-eat-bruncheon fee. Once the transaction was settled, I quickly pushed past two middle aged PAWGs and ran as fast as I could towards the clean plates. Oh lord, the selection was so amazing. I nearly cried while browsing the bruncheon buffet. I don't know if it was the lighting, music, crippling hunger pangs or the subliminal messages transported to my cerebral cortex via the lucky buffet boy advert - but I couldn't stop eating. I ate 4 full plates (plus dessert) consisting of the following:
Tri-tip, Beef Brisket, Bacon, Scrambled Eggs, Lobster Benedict, Ghost Pepper Cheddar, Biscuits and Gravy, Potatoes O'Brien, Fried fish, six fried Twinkies, Pork Kielbasa, Sausage and egg taquitos, soft serve chocolate ice cream with hot fudge, chocolate chips, and fudge laced brownie, oh - and half a hush puppy.
I sobbed loudly with tears of joy, nearly choking on my food the whole time. I had to keep filling my cup full of chocolate milk, just to lubricate my throat so the food would slide down and not get stuck. I was there nearly 34 minutes and 55 seconds before I decided to leave. I did it! I was the lucky buffet boy! It was now time to visit all the wonderful Vegas strip locations of my dreams. I was just about to exit the casino floor, when I felt this incredible sensation. There was so much pain and pressure. I immediately grabbed my stomach and doubled over. I groaned loudly and felt the beads of sweat form on my buttcheeks. I turned around and ran for the nearest bathroom. My stomach was making noises that sounded like a demons voice.
I was barely able to kick in the stall door and do a backwards hop onto the filthy casino toilet. I didn't have time to wipe the urine off the lid. I clenched my teeth, folded in half while my whole stomach began vibrating and deflating. Viscous brown froth shot out into the toilet at such an alarming and incredible rate. The splashback painted both of my buttcheeks in frothy muck. Oh god, I've never had such a scummy dumper. It was all liquid for the first full minute. I ended up having to flush when I felt the water level rise up and touch my gonads. I ended up filling another full bowl, my sides now cramping. I was moaning so loud and hard that I made my own ears ring from the echos off the tile bathroom floowalls. Two minutes in, finally the solid logs started shooting out - one after another. The aftermath was horrible after nearly ten minutes of post-defecation hyperventilating. The splashback was all up my back, and my thighs were coated in a wet, stinky film.
This happened to me three times. I lost approximately a third of my time in Vegas having to be in or near a bathroom. I got ripped off, and Im just wondering see if I’m in the right against the buffet system - as it trapped me inside the casino and ruined my vacation.
Thanks!

[SELL]Urban Decay, ABH, KKW, Nars, Tarte, Kevyn Aucoin, TF, Marc Jacobs, Chanel, and more! HUGE post of items!!! :D

Hey everyone! Paypal and Shipping is U.S only, starts at $3.00 (unless I write shipped next to the item) and goes up depending on how heavy the package will be. At the time I'm not interested in swapping! I'll get packages out within 3-5 business days!
G/S buyer pays fees :)
THIS POST IS SUCH A MESS. I'm clearing out a gigantic huge chunk of my collection and I just have no time to re-organize this post so apologies for it being all over the place!!! If you think something is crazy priced, throw an offer!
Also this makeup has all been stored in my room and come from a smoke free home!
