Luxor Pyramid and Sphinx

As a first time visitor it's huge! Also, the view from before getting on the monorail is one not to miss. Since the monorail is free, it's worth taking!

Luxor Casino

If you like the Egyptian-themed Luxor Casino, better hurry for a return visit.

The casinos owners MGM Mirage have announced a $300 million remodeling project to strip out the interior of the casino and replace it with "trendy lounges, restaurants and an ultra-hip nightclub."

"We're not a British museum with ancient artifacts, we're a casino-resort," Luxor President and COO Felix Rappaport said. "This was a brilliantly conceived building from the outside. The pyramid always created a sense of wow and wonder, but the inside never delivered on that promise."

So we can say good-bye to another Vegas landmark. I hear the bookmakers are already taking bets on how long it will be before they implode the Sphinx.
