To many people, Vegas is a place of splurging and breaking free from responsibility and restrictions. It may seem counterintuitive to set rules for conquering the city — but doing so can save visitors money and relieve stress.


Las Vegas is Desert

Although the air conditioning may convince visitors otherwise, Sin City can top 115 degrees in the dead of the summer. The combination of staying up all night, drinking alcoholic beverages and transferring from the cool casino floors to the sweltering heat outside can take its toll on one’s body. It is imperative to stay hydrated, fed and well rested.


Travel Mid-Week

The weekends in Las Vegas are typically packed with numerous conventions and the heaviest flow of traffic to the city. For this reason, visitors can usually get better deals on hotels, shows and restaurants when visiting Monday through Thursday.


Don’t be Afraid of the Buffet

With all of the amazing high-end dining throughout the strip, travelers might be inclined to eat every meal like a king. It might be a good idea to check out one of the dozens of buffets around the city for a quick, cheap lunch, and save the money for the casino.

Carp Fishing

Summer is the perfect time to try your luck at carp fishing. Carp are widely recognized as an invasive species known to cause problems in the waterways they call home. They suck up all the food and reduce the quality of the water, hurting more sensitive marine populations. Luckily for anglers, carp can grow to massive sizes and are a ton of fun to catch.

Culinary Artistry

Dining is an art, and now that applies to both on the ground and at 35,000 feet thanks to Hainan Airlines’ “Hai Chef” Inflight Artistic Chinese cuisine series, a collaboration with Dong Zhenxiang, a Chinese culinary master also known as Dadong.

Passport PD: The World’s First GaN Technology-Based Travel Adapter

Passport PD is the world’s first GaN technology-based travel adapter with an auto-resetting fuse. Why is this important? If you break the single-use fuse in your typical travel adapter, you have only a few options — buy a new fuse, change the fuse yourself or buy a new travel adapter altogether. Additionally, if the fuse breaks and you don’t notice, then you could expect to come back to a fully charged device … only, you won’t.

Take Me to Tahiti

Mana is the life force Tahitians believe connects all things.
