Shallow water allows you to gaze with fascination at the colorful fish swimming in view.
We sat in an opulent lounge, and enjoyed a drink while waiting for the Bellagio water fountain display to start outside of the hotel entrance. The entrance has two Chinese lions.
When in China I learned that the now famous pug faced lions were drawn and sculpted by Chinese artists from a description brought to China by explorers. They had no idea what a real lion looked like. They incorporated the fierce beast into their own culture though there are no lions native to China.
