Video of the day: The lights of Las Vegas

Las Vegas at night
Love Las Vegas? Check out this brilliant time-lapse video of the neon city - it'll take you straight there.

Recorded by film maker Philip Bloom from his hotel balcony, this is a wonderful 24-hour snapshot of the Strip, the nearby hotel pools, McCarren airport and the mountains surrounding Vegas - all from 31 stories up in the MGM Signature.

The idea behind the video, Bloom says on his blog, came from the idea that 'neon never stops and Vegas is 24-hours a day.'
