The $1.5 billion Venetian Hotel. Absolutely mind boggling 5013 rooms! The Grand Canal Shoppes is an extensive 500,000-square-foot themed, indoor retail mall. The area features cobbled walkways, a reproduction of Venice’s Grand Canal complete with real gondolas and a replica of St. Mark’s Square. The Guggenheim Hermitage Museum, the 65000 square foot Canyon Ranch SpaClub, and 19 remarkable restaurants, all waiting to make your visit a great one. Seems a bit over the top to me. Even if you aren’t staying there you must at least go see it.

Grand Canal Shoppes –



  1. Where is this place? Dubai? It looks amazing which isnt suprising considering the price tag.

  2. This is in Las Vegas, but I’m sure there are plenty of over the top places to see in Dubai as well!
