Las Vegas Travel Guide

"Viva, Las Vegas!", as a certain pop icon sang in 1964. And with its wealth of entertainment options and dedication to all things fun, that appraisal still very much stands decades later.


Las Vegas is one of the most popular and - let's be honest - notorious tourist cities in the world. Vegas is a metropolis, located in the vast Nevada desert with huge hotels and casinos lining the 4.2 miles (6.8 km) Strip. Circus Circus, The Venetian, Mandalay Bay - all those iconic names you’ve seen in countless Hollywood movies lie within Sin City’s borders. If you’ve seen ‘Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas’, ‘Casino’ or ‘The Hangover’, you’ll know what we’re talking about. 


Despite its fame - and unique, extraordinary tourist experience - Las Vegas only really came into existence in the early 1930s when architectural marvel the Hoover Dam was built, bringing in workers and their families. Of course, the fact that the state of Nevada legalized gambling around that time didn’t hurt either.


The shows and parties in Las Vegas are some of the most well-known and extravagant in the world - particularly along the Strip. Huge name stars perform regularly at the famous venues here, whether it’s live music, comedy or magic. Pool parties and other club nights are legendary - should that be your kind of thing... 


However, there’s a lot more to the city than its party reputation - the entertainment in Las Vegas is as varied as you could wish. However other areas - such as the old, glittery Fremont Street in the historic, cultured Downtown area - have their own offerings for tourists.


For example, food options are in abundance in Las Vegas. As well as the staple ‘burgers and fries’-style options you’d expect from the good old US of A, there are gastronomical choices from around the globe. Whether you’re into fine dining or want to simply take in all the glamor walking around with some street food, you won’t be disappointed.


Shopping aficionados will be very happy visiting Vegas. Home to no less than 7 malls, you can buy your jealous friends any number of souvenirs, as well as treating yourself to pretty much any designer brands you have your heart set on.


If it’s natural beauty you’re after, you can visit the Grand Canyon in neighboring Arizona with relative ease - it’s 4 or 5 hours by car (roughly 300 miles or 500 km), you can get on a tour bus or - for the really decadent - you can fly over the vast wonder by helicopter. Hey, anything is possible in Vegas...
