Where to stay

Deciding where to stay in Las Vegas is, in some ways, unimportant. No matter where you base yourself, there’s always something happening in every nook, cranny, and nearby casino. There’s entertainment and excitement galore within walking distance from just about anywhere. ...

Things to do

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.

Travel tips

With so much to see in this neon paradise, perhaps the best Las Vegas travel tip is this: Create a vague itinerary, yes, but leave the details up to a bit of spontaneity!  However, when travelling to the United States in general, always make sure to leave plenty of time to plan ahead. Sufficient preparation will ensure you get the maximum amount of enjoyment out of your travels. Travelling conditions to the United States may change at any time, so always keep yourself well-informed.

Getting Around

Navigating the city is easy with so many Las Vegas transport options available. While stretch limousines and helicopters are all viable options for those who’ve found success inside the casinos, public transport in Vegas can prove much more practical. Las Vegas is also a very walkable city. With so much to see, sometimes the best place to be is street level. If walking, just make sure to plan for the weather. The Mojave Desert can get quite warm!

Where to eat

Opulence and luxury are the starring roles of the show that is Las Vegas food and drink. A wealth of world-class chefs have made Vegas home, and their restaurants are serving some of the most intriguing and delectable dishes in the United States.  If your appetite yearns for something more, or you just can’t seem to decide what to put on your plate, sprawling buffets are the solution.  Dream up your perfect cocktail or stick to the classics. Where else is it more suitable to order a dry martini with an olive? Eat, drink, and win big!


Spoil yourself in a shopping destination unlike any other. From the most sought-after and luxurious brands in high-end fashion to the best in charmingly tacky souvenirs, anything Las Vegas shops don’t have isn’t worth having. ...

Best time to travel

The weather in Las Vegas varies quite wildly across the months, so you’ll want to consider how many indoor vs. outdoor activities you’d like to pursue while choosing your holiday dates. ...
