You’ve just just arrived to Caesars Palace, camera in hand, and are feeling a little overwhelmed.
Trust me, I know the feeling. Last week I was tasked with shooting beautiful images of this Las Vegas hotel for my Instagram… and I had no idea where to begin!
For those of you who don’t know me, my name is Sabina and I’m the blogger behind Girl vs Globe. I mainly write about travel and post daily snapshots from all the wonderful places I get to visit on my Instagram.
After three days filled with exploration, delicious food and lots of memory cards I came up with this shortlist of the most photogenic spots at Caesars Palace.
Here are nine locations all you photography enthusiasts – or anyone wanting to make their Instagram followers green with envy – will enjoy…
No visit to Caesars Palace would be complete without a dip in Temple Pool. It’s part of the Garden of the Gods Pool Oasis, which actually consists of seven different pools – but this one is the most iconic.
For a good clear shot, wake up early and head to the pool before the other guests arrive. Because I was jet lagged after flying in from Europe, I got there at 5am. Although it wasn’t open yet I was able to snap some beautiful close-ups over the rope barriers.
Insta tip! You can’t beat the view of Temple Pool from the terrace at Mr. Chow. That’s where the photo above was taken from.
Mr. Chow Restaurant
The Mr. Chow restaurant is well worth a visit – and not just for the above view. From a purely visual perspective, it’s a feast for the eyes.
You enter through a set of private elevators, before being welcomed by friendly staff and whisked off to the bar for a drink. The restaurant’s centrepiece is a glossy white futuristic sculpture. It hangs from the ceiling and occasionally comes to life, shifting from shape to shape and changing colors in the process.
It has to be seen to be understood, but here’s a photo to give you a vague idea.
Mr. Chow is a world-renowned restaurant, so we need to talk about the food as well! If you’re after an exclusive dining experience and love Chinese cuisine, I would highly recommend visiting.
All dishes are served family-style which makes for a really fun outing with friends or family. My favourite was the Beijing duck, which was just as succulent as the one I had in Beijing two years ago.
As for drinks, I loved both the cocktails I tried – Red 22 & Collins and the Lychee Martini. But if a glass of bubbly is more your style remember that a champagne trolley is wheeled around the restaurant, filled with classic brands like Krug, Ruinart and Laurent-Perrier.
Insta tip! Every now and then, a chef will come out and prepare a fresh batch of noodles right in front of the guests. This makes for a fantastic photo or video opportunity!
