Replica Travel Destinations - Better than the Original?

By Edoardo Bellando - Part 2

Tiny Replica Arc de Triomphe
Paris Hotel Casino, Las Vegas, Nevada

You can then go to Paris - the Paris Hotel Casino (3655 Las Vegas Blvd. S) and "stroll down the cobblestone sidewalks of the Rue de la Paix shopping district", with the Eiffel Tower looming in the distance. Luxor, Egypt, [4] is right around the corner, with a 30-story pyramid and "King Tut's Tomb and museum."

For a 3-D panorama of what Las Vegas thinks Paris looks like, view this Paris Hotel Casino 360 degree image which features their replica Arc de Triomphe.

But Orlando, Florida, has even more to offer. No need, for instance, to go to Portofino, the romantic fishing village on one of the Italian Riviera's most beautiful bays, long the playground of the likes of Aristotle Onassis, the Dukes of Windsor, Liz Taylor and Richard Burton.

Now an improved version is available at Portofino Bay Hotel, courtesy of the Loews Hotels corporation. "Escape to a romantic Mediterranean seaside village nestled around a small bay recreated at the Orlando Vacation Destination for the 21st Century" says the Internet ad.

Just a five-minute ride from the Universal Studios theme parks, Portofino 2 offers 750 guest rooms -- possibly more than those available at Portofino 1 -- not to mention "two Bocce Ball Courts". Again, the immaculate replica looks much better than the worn-out, weather-battered original.

But the densest, most mind-boggling group of Replicas is the one at Disneyworld's World Showcase. There, Canada, China, France, Germany, Italy, Mexico, Morocco, Norway, the United Kingdom, and "Adventure America" are all gathered in one place. In the last Replica -- as it happens for Las Vegas's New York -- America is made available in America. No need to travel there.
