Las Vegas holidays are full of bright lights, glitz and glamour. Unlike any other place in the world, the city of Las Vegas is a modern-day oasis nestled in the heart of the American desert. What began as a watering hole for westward travellers during the country’s youth has grown into an internationally-renowned destination for high-stakes gambling, exquisite dining and enchanting diversions. Las Vegas is celebrated as a quintessential resort city around the world and offers a complete spectrum of gaming, entertainment, food and nightlife getaways for its stream of non-stop eager visitors.

Holidays to Las Vegas is all about neon lights and live entertainment, the city of Las Vegas is a monumental amusement centre crammed with colourful casinos, swish shopping malls, top-name shows and innumerable restaurants. Strolling down the famous Vegas Strip is like taking a world tour, passing the Eiffel Tower, the canals of Venice, New York skyscrapers and Egyptian pyramids along the way. Volcanoes erupt, fountains bedazzle, light shows illuminate the night sky.

During the last century, Las Vegas grew from a dusty railroad settlement into the exuberant and irresistible beacon of indulgence it is today. After receiving a gambling license in the 1930s, the city saw a rapid growth of people as well as investment capital from a diverse and developing entertainment industry. The sparkling signs went up, soaring hotels were raised and the stage was set for a new kind of city built on a foundation of unreserved and audacious entertainment. Ever since, Las Vegas has done everything promised and more — from flaunting big name celebrities, hosting top-dollar sporting events and being home to an endless procession of live shows, a monument of lavish hotels and a sea of mesmerising lights synonymous with the word Vegas.

With the greatest concentration of mega casinos anywhere, it’s no wonder that Sin City is the number one gambling destination in the world. If playing with money isn’t your thing, relax and enjoy live music, dancing and trademark magic shows that make the city so famous and unique. Satisfy your appetite at any one of countless fine dining establishments where celebrity chefs and enthralling performances are just part of the daily menu. But Las Vegas isn’t all lights and dazzle, and even has plenty to offer for nature lovers and anyone looking for a little peace and quiet. The landscape outside of Las Vegas is a treasure trove of stunning canyons, tranquil desert forests and scenic mountain trails, offering the perfect opportunity to take a break from the boundless energy of this spirited and exhilarating destination.
