A Las Vegas holiday promises to be extravagant, perhaps even outrageous depending on where you go and what you do.
The city is a living shrine to the concept of unlimited fun. After all, things that happen here are supposed to stay here – and the things that happen here are unrelentingly fantastic. When you visit Las Vegas, you’ll be entertained day and night by the neon city’s vast casinos, grand hotels, and world-class shows.
As the entertainment capital of the world, there are perhaps more things to do in Las Vegas than any destination you’ve visited before. Take your chances on the blackjack tables, or soak in the atmosphere of The Strip with a martini in hand. Shop to your heart’s content, and then be entertained by some of the biggest names in the business at Caesars Palace and the MGM Grand. Experience pure culinary indulgence, from steak houses to tea lounges and everything in between.
Wondering what to see in Las Vegas? You could live in the city of lights a lifetime and still not bear witness to everything on offer. Your best place to start is The Strip. Casinos here like the Bellagio, Luxor, and The Palazzo are the homes of the high-rollers. Catch a world-class show, or crash a Vegas shotgun wedding in a classic chapel o’ love!
Vegas hotels are built for extravagance, and their food is no exception. Whatever your preference, you won’t have to search far for somewhere to eat in Las Vegas. From fine-dining at the world-renowned Le Cirque to cheap eats from a street vendor, culinary adventures of all sorts await you. It’s all here: Italian, Japanese, American steakhouse… whatever you’re hungry for!
Shopping in Las Vegas entails designer fashion like Cartier, Versace, Giorgio Armani, and Dolce & Gabbana. The evident wealth of the city means all the world’s most luxurious brands are at your fingertips to be enjoyed – or perhaps just admired behind glass! Splash some cash, treat yourself using some casino winnings, or simply window shop ’til you drop. There are also plenty of kitsch souvenir shops where the price tags aren’t quite so extravagant.
Las Vegas is the casino capital of the world for good reason. The ‘Sin City’ was built around gambling and entertainment, and the atmosphere this creates is infectious. The casino buildings themselves are nothing short of awe-inspiring. From the iconic fountains of the Bellagio to the immense 27ha ARIA at CityCenter, try your luck at the biggest names in the business.
Much like the casinos, restaurants and people of the aptly nicknamed ‘Disneyland for adults’, Las Vegas museums are terrifically over the top. American muscle cars and famous wax-works are on display, and there’s even a museum dedicated to the men that helped bring Vegas to its most dizzying heights of excess: the mob!
