7 days, 3000 miles in an SUV.

Las Vegas

Chanon is praying for blessing from Caesar's Palace PraPoom. This shrine was built by Thairath's Kampol Watcharapol many years ago and has been relocated a couple of times.
Chanon won up to $1000 at a time on Casino War table but in the end he lost $100. Apparently, PraPoom had helped him but his greed was way too powerful.

Venice? No way, the real Venice is a thousand times more dirty. This is in the Grand Canal Shops at the Venetian Hotel and Casio.

It's easy to meet celebrities in Las Vegas. Kay and Auai meet Pavarotti at the Venetian Hotel and Casio.

Bellagio Indoor Garden.

Chanon in Bellagio.

Lunch at Sam Woo.
Shawn passes on Fruit Punch to Chanon. When he ordered Fruit Punch he had Western-style fruit punch in mind. He was very disappointed with this Chinese-style fruit punch. Chanon thinks it's really good.
