if you don't want to ride the free tram from the luxor to Mandaly Bay and can still do the long walk, then do it inside the Shoppes at Mandalay Place, it is connected to the Luxor at the Second floor where you can shop or eat along the long winding corridor connecting it to the Mandalay Bay in Air Conditioned Glory. The Shoppes at Mandalay Place brings together more than 40 boutiques and restaurants. Located on the 100,000-square-foot sky bridge connecting Mandalay Bay and Luxor. The shops are smaller as compared to the Grand Canal Shoppes at Venetian or The Forum and are less luxrious but again since the Mandalay Bay is a mid price segment of the MGM Resorts in Vegas, there are lots of people here. Some of the shopping inside Mandalay Bay includes bejeweled, featuring an assortment of fine watches and jewelry from renowned labels such as Rolex and Mimi So; The Lobby Store, offering fashionable apparel ranging from Tommy Bahama to Hurley; and Pearl Moon, featuring designer ladies’ swimwear and accessories.

this will be a comparison of the luxe shops of the Sands Corporation showpiece properties and their shopping areas, particularly the Shoppes at the Palazzo at Las Vegas and the Shoppes at the Marina Bay Sands Singapore. You would see easily why singapore with it's just 2 major casino complexes has overtaken las vegas this year as the second most profitable gambling destination in the world of which Macau is the first!
What to buy: maxxed out your platinum credit card! even your Titanium Credit Card!!!
Palazzo is 5 Stars but Marina Bay Sands is 7 Stars!
Palazzo, the cheapest suites at weekends is $ 425, In Marina Bay Sands, the cheapest Suites is $ 550 on weekdays!
What to pay: maxxed out your titanium credit card!
The Shoppes at the Palazzo is the Centerpiece luxe shopping of the Sands group in Las Vegas. It is more opulent than the Grand Canal Shoppes at the nearby The Venetian and in here, you coul maxxed out your credit card completely if you would splurge on shopping. It opened in 2008 and it rivals the Forum of Ceasar's in the number of luxe brands but it is still overshadowed by the Shoppes at the Marina Bay Sands in Singapore, it's 7 Star sister! (see my singapore pages).

Located right next door to the Monte Carlo is this little gem. Not just a place to get your emergency medical needs, but a wonderful place to find Las Vegas souvenirs without the high price and there are LOTS to choose from. I like to get those funny gifts for friends from here and a great place to get cheap postcards. Awesome!
Aaah, if you are into signature collection, drop by the Aria Hotel and your neck will be twisting! They have all the signature stores inside the hotel! Name a brand, and they probably have it!
Check out the Gucci, Louis Vuitton, Balenciaga, Armani, Tiffany, Prada, Fendi, Mikimoto, Bulgari, Jimmy Choo Hermenegildo Zegna, Pucci, Dior, Taghuer, Yves St Laurent, ...If you won hundreds of thousands of dollars at the casino, proceed to Aria Hotel. They will probably help you spend your money! And, walk out in style just like Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman!
The best part of Las Vegas shopping? You don't have to be embarrass going inside the shop despite you not being in your best attire!Most of the expensive shops in Las Vegas are not like those found in Milan, Paris, New York, Rome,etc where the sales representatives are snobbish. Las Vegas is totally different. The reason why? They don't know that a person in rugged attire might have won the million bucks at the casino! So, it's not like they will discriminate you because you are dressed like a regular guy at the street corner...
What to buy: Most of the signature items can be found here.
What to pay: Price ranges depending on which item you are purchasing.
This place is the grand daddy of luxury if you can afford it. Here are just a sample of some shops that are in this mall:
Tiffany & Co
Yves Saint Laurent
What to buy: Handbags. Watches. Suits.
What to pay: If you're in here, you'll be spending thousands.
If you're driving in or around Las Vegas save your money for the Fashion Outlets of Las Vegas. A list of their stores can be found at http://www.fashionoutletlasvegas.com/directory_alpha.asp
What to pay: Anywhere from 30-90% off of retail value.
This is a great mall to hit when you are in town. The prices may not be as cheap as in the outlet and discount stores, but like in any mall there are always sales.
A friend, who also loves Las Vegas, swears to me that there are ACTUALLY fashion shows at The Fashion Show Mall... hence the name.
Personally I have never caught one of these free shows but I did notice in the center, on the lower lever there is indeed an area that looks like a runway, with lights and a curtain so maybe I'll catch one next time I'm in town!
What to buy: For a Canadian it's the department stores that are the big draw! I always have to visit Macys, Nordstrom, Saks Fifth Avenue and of course Neiman Marcus when I am in town.
Oh yes and Victoria's Secret, yet another store we do not have Canada!
The Fashion Show Mall is a large mall located next to the Mirage on the Strip. You have the large departement stores such as Macy's, Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue and Dillard's. In addition most of the popular chain stores in the US such as Abercrombie & Fitch, Aldo, Aveda, Banana Republic, Bath & Body Works, bebe, Claire's, EB Games, Express, Forever 21, Gap, Guess. Hollister, Hot Topic, J.Crew... and many more! You need a lot of time if you want to get through them all.
There are restaurants and cafes as well, such as California Pizza Kitchen and Cinnabon. The store hours are 10 am - 9 pm on weekdays, and 11 am - 7 Pm on sundays.
If you could imagine dying and going to shopping heaven, then this is a place for you.
At 2 million square feet, this mall is the goddess of all malls, as it has 6 department stores, and features over 200 stores. I would recommend this mall over the Forum Shops for the average shopper, as you can actually buy some stuff from most of these stores.
This place is a day trip in itself, and is a one-stop shopping destination.
What to buy: This mall has everthing your heart desires
Wow, what can I say other than this place is elegant. We strolled all around and was so impressed at the details. Nothing but high end stores here. Not your typical stores for the middle-class. I am sure there are plenty of folks that can afford to shop here. Maybe when I win the mega lotto....lol! Still it's a very beautiful shopping mall with some really trendy restaurants. I got a kick about the one the looks like its shaped like a hair dryer:)
Hours of operation: Sunday - Thursday, 10 a.m. - 11 p.m.; Friday - Saturday, 10 a.m. - midnight
Restaurants in the mall: Beso, Mastro's Ocean Club,Wolfgang Puck Pizzeria & Cucina, The Pods by Wolfgang Puck, Todd English P.U.B., The Cup and Social House
What is neat is guests can also access Crystals from the CityCenter Tram at either Bellagio or Monte Carlo
With most restaurants becoming ridiculously expensive in Las Vegas, if you want to eat cheap most meals so you can afford that $40 dinner buffet. I would suggest to go to Trader Joe's at 2101 S. Decatur, just north of Sahara Blvd. TJ's is a long-standing favorite of mine. There are two other Trader Joe's in the Las Vegas area, but this one is just a couple miles west of the Strip. They charge their usual prices there, not inflated, like most stores near the strip. You can buy some ready-to-eat meals and snacks and beverages to tide you over so you don't faint from low blood sugar and can save the money to buy those expensive buffet meals. TJs also offers their nifty, decorative shopping bags; some are insulated, to keep food that needs to stay cold protected from the blistering summer Nevada sun. Even if you can afford to pony up for restaurants every meal in LV, TJ's is a good place to get snacks or beverages to keep in your room in case you tap out and need a beer to cry into because you can't play and get freebies from the casino any more!
This is definitely a great store to check out if you are into silver and turquiose jewelry. All the jewelries here are authentic and there is a certificate of authenticity that will be given to you if you buy an item...
Each jewelry is individually handcrafted and the craftmanship is very intricate, a work of art!
My daughters bought their necklaces and rings in this shop! The sales person is a Filipino lady who used to work in Saudi Arabia and has been a traveller, too!
She is very helpful and she will show you all the items that you like piece by piece without a rush!
What to buy: Most of the jewelries are piece of arts- the craftmanship is wonderful! Buy anything that you can afford. There are necklaces, rings, earrings, belts, bracelets, etc. These are made of the stones from Arizona! There are also opals, turquiose, rose quarts, etc.
They have sale items and make sure to ask them.
They also do lay-away items and they can deduct that automatically from your visa card and they will send them to you via Federal Express!
Each item thay you buy comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.
What to pay: Depends on what you buy.
There are many things to buy at this store and it is fun for your children and so with the adults. You can find mugs, t-shirts, sweatshirts, toys, bags, dispensers, lunch boxes, car toys that has the logo of the M & M.
If you are buying the M & M's on the dispenser, make sure to check where the chocolates or the peanuts. There are so many to choose from so make sure that you don't make this mistake.
What to buy: The chocolate M & M.
What to pay: $3.99 a pound
