The Inquirer.net, the Web site for the Philippines Daily Inquirer, writes about the recent growth in Las Vegas, including the new MGM Mirage CityCenter, the 67-acre development on the Las Vegas Strip between two mega-resorts, the Monte Carlo on the south and the Bellagio on the north.
"Set to open its doors late next year, the complex will feature, among other attractions, the Aria, a soaring 61-story, 4,000-room resort casino and convention center," the Inquirer writes.
"As a fitting tribute to Elvis Presley, who, in his latter years, became a favorite entertainment fixture in the Las Vegas circuit, one of the Aria’s featured attractions will be a Cirque du Soleil show anchored on his music."
The story also talks about how Las Vegas is also seeking to attract more of the Asian market, particularly China and India, to keep the tourism industry growing.
