Information on Las Vegas

Before traveling to Las Vegas there are many things to consider: Where can I exchange money? What type of plug connections do they use? What type of visa do I need?

Other Useful information

Electricity and plug sockets.

Plugs in the USA use two flat connectors which is why you will need an adapter if you are going to use a device that has a three-pronged plug head, such as those in the UK. You can buy these in any electronics store before your trip. It is rare to find them in the USA at a cheaper price.

On the other hand, the voltage is 110V. Nowadays almost all appliances are 220V-110V compatible. However, it is still recommended to check the information provided before connecting the appliance to the electricity network.
