How weird is this?

This is the Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas as found on Flickr, even the sky is fake (click on the image to see a bigger version)


The hotel’s website says:

No trip to Venice — or The Venetian — would be complete without a graceful and romantic glide down the Grand Canal in an authentic Venetian gondola. Float beneath bridges, beside cafes, under balconies and through the vibrant Venetian streetscape as your singing gondolier sweeps you down the Grand Canal for a ride like no other. A relaxing and romantic gondola ride reveals all the charm, excitement and passion that is Venice — and The Venetian.

Fascinating as it might be I still like holidays in real places with real skies and things that might even go wrong and where buildings look their age. I have not bought this fake perfection yet even in this age of plastic surgeries.
Here’s some pictures of the real thing in all its decaying glory.
