Anyone looking to go to Las Vegas, and is looking to save money should look up myvegas. A time consuming facebook game, but you can earn enough LPs to get a couple of free buffets pretty quickly.

Did almost the same trip and stayed at Aria while in Vegas and can't recommend it enough. Pool and location are both great, as are the rooms.
It's not thematic like many other hotels but it's the newest one and you can feel it. Rooms with view facing the Strip are top notch.
Would personally go back there or otherwise Wynn\Encore.

While there i had friends at the both Luxor and Trump (where i stayed too) and i wouldn't recommend. Both on a lower budget though

Going July 22nd to Aug 5th.

Think going to go with Aria then, looks more modern which I'd prefer. Any specific pool parties, nights or things should do in Vegas?

Loved it round NoLita/ Soho (Supreme, Saturdays Surf, J Crew, Steven Alan, Armor Lux for shopping. Some good interiors spots and MoMa design too).

5th Av is worth a day (we did it after going up the Empire State Building early doors). Nepenthes is on west 34th so can reach then

The Village was really nice and if you're with a girl, a must for a day.

Yankees game was surprisingly enjoyable.

Bunch of cool shit in Brooklyn, but not the absolute mecca of cool some make it out to be.

Let me know if you want any specific recommendations for places or things

Went a couple of years ago and stayed at the Bahia, was alright, but I think there's better. Wasn't a patch on the Bahia we stayed at in Mexico, but I put that down to Dom. Rep. not being as wealthy as Mexico.

Off to Bali end of this month. Staying in Nusa Dua. There for 10 days in total. Looking to chill most of the holiday but would be interested in any specific tours/attractions that are worth doing etc. Cheers.

Monkey forest is definitely worth seeing.
Book a day tour to see some temples etc. if thats your thing. Was with the missus and saw a really nice one during sunset.

dunno when you are going but this is a must…
http://www.restaurante100maneiras.com/?q=N/-/21

need to book, only about 5 tables. amazing tasting menu(at Portuguese prices)

bairro alto is the best area to go of an evening.
loads of places to go, much of a muchness, but http://grapesandbites.com/ is well worth a visit for food/good wine.
dunno what sort of night life you like, but if you are into clubbing then John Malkovic's club is pretty decent, i dont know a thing about dance music but enjoyed myself. http://www.luxfragil.com/en/
